Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A text for students without a specialized background in biological sciences. Describes how nerve cells transmit signals, how signals are put together, and how higher functions emerge from this integration. Emphasis is on experiments and the way they are carried out. Sections cover principles of signaling, signaling in the nervous system, integrative mechanisms, and development of the nervous system. This edition is somewhat condensed, and includes color illustrations. Nicholls is affiliated with the International School for Advanced Studies, Italy.

Synopsis:

From Neuron to Brain, Fourth Edition describes how nerve cells go about their business of transmitting signals, how the signals are put together, and how, out of this integration, higher functions emerge. The emphasis, as before, is on experiments, and on the way they are carried out. Elements of format and presentation have been changed — more headings have been introduced, the paragraphs are shorter, and the illustrations, now in full color, have been clarified. Intended for use in upper-level undergraduate, graduate, psychology, and medical school neuroscience courses, this book will be of interest to anyone who is curious about the workings of the nervous system.

Synopsis:

An account of how cellular and molecular approaches can provide insights into the workings of the brain.
