Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Pedro Cuevas, MD, PhD (Central Especial "Ramon y Cajal")
Description: This book aims to give an overview of the many facets of modern microscopic neuroanatomy. It is a concise methodological text, arranged in 11 chapters, with high-quality electron micrographs.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive review of current knowledge in neurocytology, particularly at the ultrastructural level. The section on intercellular junctions has a weak point, because no mention is made of connexin family of proteins.
Audience: This is an advanced text for individuals with an established interest in the neurosciences. It would also be of interest for students, residents, neurologists, and neurosurgeons.
Features: The book has superb illustrations. The publisher deserves a word of thanks for its attention to the comfort of the reader. This is apparent in the intelligent choice of page size and text arrangement. The references are voluminous and up-to-date.
Assessment: The book is recommended for students, neuroscientists, and practitioners as a comprehensive, up-to-date, and informative source of information on the fine structure of the nervous system.
