Review:

Neuroscience is a remarkably well-organized and well-written text. It is highly accessible and easy to follow, which is impressive given the amount of detail and depth it provides. Each step of the way, explanations of complex concepts are accompanied by easy-to-follow graphics that on the one hand enhance deep understanding, and, on the other, make it easy to even just browse or skim. The book does an excellent job of bridging between molecular and molar levels of analysis, between basic and clinical science, and between the big picture and discrete detail. In other words, it keeps you grounded and allows you to understand how basic processes relate to cognition, emotion, and behavior, as well as to various forms of dysfunction. ... I am definitely keeping a copy of Neuroscience on my desk, along with Lezak et al., Strauss et al., and all the other classics. --Yana Suchy, JINS

As is the tradition with this book, current neuroanatomical and neurophysiological concepts are explained in detail and fully illustrated. The addition of current concepts on neuroplasticity and behavior, as well as the web resources, significantly enrich this edition. This is a worthy and affordable book for neuroscience students. ... An excellent contribution to the study of neuroscience, deserving of its place in neurology, neurosurgery, and neurosciences libraries. --Celso Agner, Doody's Book Review
