The Physiology of Excitable Cells

The Physiology of Excitable Cells Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fourth edition of this highly successful text has been extensively revised and restructured to take account of the many recent advances in the field. The classic observations of recent years can now be interpreted with the powerful new techniques of molecular biology. Consequently, there is much new material throughout the book, including many new illustrations and extensive references to recent work. The text's essential philosophy remains the same, however: it clearly explains fundamental concepts, and examines key experiments in detail. This thorough and clearly written textbook will be valuable for students of physiology, neuroscience, cell biology and biophysics.

Synopsis:

Excitable cells include nerve, sensory and muscle cells and they are studied by students of physiology, neuroscience, cell biology and biophysics. The text is well known among students and researchers for its thoroughness and clarity. Fundamental concepts are explained and key experiments are examined in some detail. This revised and restructured new edition takes account of recent advances in molecular biology, with 900 new references to bring the coverage up to date, but retains the same essential philosophy as previous editions.

Synopsis:

Extensively revised and restructured new edition of classic text for students of physiology, neuroscience, cell biology.
