Editorial Reviews

Booknews
New edition of a text in which Matthews (neurobiology and behavior, State U. of New York) provides a thorough introduction to basic principles of neural function for undergraduates. Rather than a broad and superficial survey of the entire field, particular examples illustrate functional principles at the cellular, molecular, and neural-system levels, with an emphasis upon basic properties of nerve cells. He also includes thorough coverage of nervous system structure, development and plasticity, the organization of sensory and motor systems, and electrical and chemical communication in the nervous system.
