Book Details

Format: EPUB

Page count: 656 pages

File size: 13.7 MB

Protection: DRM

Language: English


An understanding of the nervous system at virtually any level of analysis requires an understanding of its basic building block, the neuron. This book provides the solid foundation of the morphological, biochemical, and biophysical properties of nerve cells. All chapters have been thoroughly revised for this second edition to reflect the significant advances of the past five years. The new edition expands on the network aspects of cellular neurobiology by adding a new chapter, Information Processing in Neural Networks, and on the relation of cell biological processes to various neurological diseases. The new concluding chapter illustrates how the great strides in understanding the biochemical and biophysical properties of nerve cells have led to fundamental insights into important aspects of neurodegenerative disease.

• Written and edited by leading experts in their respective fields

• The first treatment of cellular and molecular neuroscience that includes an introduction to mathematical modeling and simulation approaches

• Includes a chapter on the Neurobiology of Disease

• Highly referenced, comprehensive and quantitative

• Discusses emerging new understanding of non-classical molecules that affect neuronal signaling

• Full colour, professional graphics throughout
