Fundamental Neuroscience is the only comprehensive text that defines the full scope of neuroscience. Developed in accordance with results of extensive reviews by neuroscience instructors, and in cooperation with the Association of Neuroscience Departments and Programs (ANDP), this text is divided into seven integrated sections. Each section may be used for a specific course, or the full text may be adopted to provide a broad-based curriculum that will carry the student from molecular to cognitive neuroscience.
* Written by approximately 100 authors who are specialists in their field; careful editing ensures a uniform style and cross-referencing
* Prepared in cooperation with the Association of Neuroscience Departments and Programs
* Internationally renowned editorial board
* Developed in accordance with results of careful, extensive reviews by neuroscience instructors
* Comprehensive coverage of molecular, cellular, developmental, organismal, behavioral, and cognitive neuroscience
The third edition of Fundamental Neuroscience reinvents itself as an engrossing and comprehensive presentation of the discipline of neuroscience, from molecules to cognition. Thorough but succinct, and lavishly illustrated, the book builds from an introductory section that includes fundamental neuroanatomy and goes on to cover cellular and molecular neuroscience, development, sensory systems, motor systems, regulatory systems, and closes with a section on behavioral and cognitive neuroscience. More concise and manageable than the previous edition, this book has been retooled to better serve its audience in the neuroscience and medical communities.
The chapters include boxes describing clinical conditions associated with each topic, rather than separately covering clinical issues outside the subject matter in which they arise. Each chapter went through a thorough review process, giving the book an evenness of tone. The chapters are authored by outstanding working scientists who are experts on the topics they cover.
