An understanding of the nervous system at virtually any level of analysis requires an understanding of its basic building block, the neuron. This book provides the solid foundation of the morphological, biochemical, and biophysical properties of nerve cells that is needed by advanced undergraduates and graduate students, as well as researchers in need of a thorough reference.
* Highly referenced for readers to pursue topics of interest in greater detail
* Unique coverage of the application of mathematical modeling and simulation approaches not found in other textbooks
* Richly illustrated, four color presentation throughout
* Includes CD-ROM of all of the illustrations
