In the sixth edition of From Neuron to Brain, you will find a readable, up-to-date text that can be used in undergraduate, graduate, and medical school neuroscience courses. The focus of this edition remains on electrical recordings, molecular and cellular biological methods, and behavioral studies on the nervous system, from basic reflexes to cognitive functions. Today, research lines are followed from the inception of an idea to the creation of new findings in laboratories and clinics.
The neuroscience of the nervous system will interest anyone, with or without specialized training in biological sciences.
With From Neuron to Brain, I have found that the best possible coverage of topics for my course can be found in a format and degree of detail that is appropriate for advanced undergraduates.,Stephen M. Meriney, University of Pittsburgh
This book contextualizes neuroscience through experimental findings. Through these stories, students can explore neuroscience in a much richer and more fulfilling way, which is a better way to introduce them to the field.,J. David Spafford, University of Waterloo
