5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!

"This is a simply wonderful book that makes accessible in one place all the details of how the neuron and brain work. The writing is clear. The drawings are elegant and educational. The book is a feast for both the eye and mind. The richness, the beauty, and the complexity of neuroscience is all captured in this superb book."--Doody's Review Service Now in resplendent color, the new edition continues to define the latest in the scientific understanding of the brain, the nervous system, and human behavior. Each chapter is thoroughly revised and includes the impact of molecular biology in the mechanisms underlying developmental processes and in the pathogenesis of disease. Important features to this edition include a new chapter - Genes and Behavior; a complete updating of development of the nervous system; the genetic basis of neurological and psychiatric disease; cognitive neuroscience of perception, planning, action, motivation and memory; ion channel mechanisms; and much more.

Book News Annotation:

New edition of a text that emphasizes the examination of behavior at the level of individual nerve cells by addressing questions as to how the brain develops, how nerve cells in the brain communicate with one another, how different patterns of interconnections give rise to different perceptions and motor acts, how communication between neurons is modified by experience, and how that communication is altered by diseases. The 63 chapters discuss the neurology of behavior; cell and molecular biology of the neuron; elementary interactions between neurons (synaptic transmission); the neural basis of cognition; perception; movement; arousal, emotion, and behavior homeostatis; the development of the nervous system; and language, thought, mood, and learning, and memory. Contains many color and b&w illustrations. Edited by Kandell, James H. Schwartz, and Thomas M. Jessell of the Center for Neurobiology and Behavior (College of Physicians & Surgeons of Columbia U.) and The Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
