Overview

Fundamental Neuroscience is a comprehensive textbook that seeks to define the full scope of neuroscience. Developed in accordance with results of extensive reviews by neuroscience instructors, this premier textbook is divided into seven integrated sections. Each section may be used for a specific course, or the full text may be adopted to provide a broad-based curriculum that will carry the student from molecular to cognittive neuroscience.

Features:

  • Written by approximately 100 authors who are specialists in their field
  • Careful editing ensures a uniform style and cross-referencing
  • Prepared in cooperation with the Association of Neuroscience Departments and Programs
  • Created through the stewardship of an internationally renowned editorial board
  • Outlined and balanced in accordance with the results of careful, extensive reviews by neuroscience instructors
  • Provides historical context and clearly addresses the current state and mature progress of neuroscience and psychology disciplines
  • Contains a comprehensive, balanced cognitive section
  • Covers integrative systems and the clinical significance of neurobiology
  • Comprehensive coverage of molecular, cellular, developmental, organismal, behavioral, and cognitive neuroscience
  • Subsequent revisions published on a 4-year cycle
