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.
