Book Description PHI Learning 0. Softcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. For understanding the functions of the brain, it is essential to understand how the individual molecules and cells within the nervous system function and how they ultimately shape our behavior. This book provides a com-prehensive and up-to-date account of what we know, what we want to know, and what we can expect to discover in the near future about the functioning of brain at the level of molecules and cells. The text presents the subject from fundamentals to the most sophisti-cated concepts and latest discoveries: from membrane potentials to recent experiments on voltage-gated ion channels, from descriptions of recep-tors, G protein, effector molecules, and secondary messengers to an account of our current understanding of long-term potentiation. Each chapter discusses individual experiments and illustrates the techniques and approaches that have formed our present view of nerve-cell function. The book aims at graduate and post-graduate students of physiology, medical biotechnology and students of neural and cognitive sciences. It should also be of interest to anyone interested in the role of molecules and cells in the central nervous system. CONTENTS: Preface 1. Introduction. Part One: Electrical Properties of Cells and Homeostasis- 2. Passive Electrical Properties of Neurons. 3. Ion Permeability and Membrane Potentials. 4. Ion Pumps and Homeostasis. Part Two: Active Propagation of Neural Signals- 5. Action Potentials: The Hodgkin-Huxley Experiments. 6. The Structure and Function of Voltage-Gated Channels. 7. The Diversity of Voltage-Gated Channels. Part Three: Synaptic Transmission and Ligand-Gated Channels- 8. Presynaptic Mechanisms of Synaptic Transmission. 9. Excitatory Transmission. 10. Inhibitory Transmission. Part Four: Metabotropic Transmission and Neuromodulation- 11. Receptors and G Proteins. 12. Effector Molecules. 13. Calcium and Nitric Oxide. 14. Long-Term Potentiation. Part Five: Sensory Transduction- 15. Mechanoreceptors. 16. Photoreceptors and Olfactory Receptors. Appendix: Symbols Used. References. Index. Printed Pages: 704. Bookseller Inventory # 10666
