Reader's Review:
"I have spent an interesting few hours using this latest edition of the Encyclopedia of Neuroscience. The CD-ROM format is very accessible for those of us who spend most of our time in front of a computer and the content has been greatly expanded and updated since my old two volume first edition was produced in 1987. It contains 900 entries, of which 18% are new and 60% have been completely revised and updated since the second edition.

The best thing about the encyclopedia is the fact that it is multidisciplinary, with very good cross-linking between articles. There is everything here from cellular neuroscience to the neuropathology of restless legs syndrome, and in passing I noted a good deal of detail on synaptic physiology, central pattern generators, gap junctions, memory, language, temperature control, pain, schizophrenia, etc, etc. Up till now I have not been able find major absences of information or flaws in the system, which works very well.

All the entries I have seen contain useful references and many of them included classical neuroscience papers. Notes can be added to the various entries by the reader and I found this a useful feature. Diagrams were of variable quality, but many were very good and a lot of them were familiar to me from previous studies. They could be stored in an area called "light box" for future use and viewed as JPEG or PDF files. Individual entries can be printed out and/or saved as appropriate.

I found this latest edition of the encyclopedia to be a very useful and practical addition to my reference library."
