The third edition of this highly successful textbook covers the entire subject, from the conduction of nerve impulses to the higher psychological functions of the brain. Throughout the text, emphasis is placed on function rather then mechanism, that is, what neurophysiological systems do rather than how they do it. Using this approach the author gives an understanding of whole systems and their interactions.
The text has been thoroughly revised and has increased coverage of molecular neurobiology and a more extensive use of supplementary notes. Also included is a free PC-based Neurolab disc which the reader can use to try out experiments and demonstrations themselves. This illustrates important points in the text which are indicated by a computer icon.
'Neurophysiology' will be essential reading for all those studying for postgraduate examinations in neurology, neurosurgery or psychiatry, as well as for preclinical medical students and students of applied biology, physiology and zoology.

Roger Carpenter, Lecturer in Physiology, University of Cambridge.Review:
"This book would be most useful for teaching an undergraduate mammalian neurophysiology course. The Neurolab is useful in demonstrating important principles, and the text provides a cohesive account of general principles.--Doody's Journal
