Development of the Nervous System presents a broad outline of neural development principles as exemplified by key experiments and observations from past and recent times. The text is organized along a development pathway from the induction of the neural primordium to the emergence of behavior. It covers all the major topics including the patterning and growth of the nervous system, neuronal determination, axonal navigation and targeting, synapse formation and plasticity, and neuronal survival and death. This new text reflects the complete modernization of the field achieved through the use of model organisms and the intensive application of molecular and genetic approaches. Original, artist-rendered drawings combined with clear, concise writing make Development of the Nervous System well suited to anyone approaching this complex field for the first time.

From the Back Cover:

Development of the Nervous System presents a broad outline of the principles of neural development as they are exemplified by key experiments and observations from past and recent times. The text is organized along a developmental pathway from the induction of the neural primordium to the emergence of behavior. It covers all the major topics that would form the basis of a comprehensive undergraduate curriculum including the patterning and growth of the nervous system, neuronal determination, axonal navigation and targeting, synapse formation and plasticity, and neuronal survival and death. The complete modernization of the field that has been achieved through the use of model organisms and the intensive application of molecular and genetic approaches to the field are also reflected in this new text. Development of the Nervous System is richly illustrated with original, artist-rendered drawings. These illustrations, combined with clear, concise writing make this a book that is well suited to serious students approaching this complex field for the first time.
Key Features
* Synoptical coverage of concepts and experimental strategies
* Easy-to-understand schematics of critical experiments
* Molecular and genetic bases for many developmental events
* Treatment of the field as an experimental rather than a descriptive science
* Written with the undergraduate in mind
