9780815344926: Principles of Neurobiology

Principles of Neurobiology presents the major concepts of neuroscience with an emphasis on how we know what we know. The text is organized around a series of key experiments to illustrate how scientific progress is made and helps upper-level undergraduate and graduate students discover the relevant primary literature. Written by a single author in a clear and consistent writing style, each topic builds in complexity from electrophysiology to molecular genetics to systems level in a highly integrative approach. Students can fully engage with the content via thematically linked chapters and will be able to read the book in its entirety in a semester-long course. Principles of Neurobiology is accompanied by a rich package of online student and instructor resources including animations, journal club suggestions, figures in PowerPoint, and a Question Bank for adopting instructors.

Principles of Neurobiology is additionally supported by the Garland Science Learning System. This homework platform is designed to evaluate and improve student performance and allows instructors to select assignments on specific topics and review the performance of the entire class, as well as individual students, via the instructor dashboard. Students receive immediate feedback on their mastery of the topics, and will be better prepared for lectures and classroom discussions. The user-friendly system provides a convenient way to engage students while assessing progress. Performance data can be used to tailor classroom discussion, activities, and lectures to address students’ needs precisely and efficiently.

About the Author:

Dr. Liqun Luo earned his bachelor degree from University of Science & Technology of China and PhD from Brandeis University. Since 1997, Dr. Luo has taught neurobiology to undergraduate and graduate students at Stanford University, where he also directs a lab studying the assembly and function of neural circuits. Dr. Luo is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

Review:

"[Principles of Neurobiology] is distinct in its philosophy and authorship, which makes it valuable for teaching and a pleasure to read. Luo shares with us the belief that students should not be taught just facts and knowledge but also how knowledge is obtained and how principles are derived....In 13 chapters and 645 pages, he provides a masterpiece highlighting principles of how the nervous system transforms and governs our sensation, action, memory, and thought. Reading Principles of Neurobiology is like enjoying a beautiful piece of music....[Luo] has set an example of how an outstanding scientist cares about education and writes a textbook to inspire students to pursue discoveries. We hope that students will follow this pied piper, happily and fruitfully."

Cell - October 2015
