Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This introduction is easy to read and makes the book accessible to anyone with at least a basic understanding of biology who wants to be introduced to neuroethology. Nerve Cells and Animal Behaviour is a great introduction to behavioral science."
Nicolas Dray, Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine

"Throughout, the prose is lively and the discussions of even complex phenomena are lucid. The figures are carefully crafted to be clear and uncluttered, and there are just enough of them to keep the explanations moving along. Nerve Cells and Animal Behaviour is an interesting and pleasant read that conveys the thrill of studying the neural basis of animal behavior; it would be ideal for triggering interesting discussions in a relatively small biology or psychology course.
William B. Kristan, Jr., The Quarterly Review of Biology
