Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
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.
An account of how cellular and molecular approaches can provide insights into the workings of the brain.
