Overview

Now in resplendent color,the new edition continues to define the latest in the scientific understanding of the brain,the nervous system,and human behavior. Each chapter is thoroughly revised and includes the impact of molecular biology in the mechanisms underlying developmental processes and in the pathogenesis of disease. Important features to this edition include a new chapter - Genes and Behavior; a complete updating of development of the nervous system; the genetic basis of neurological and psychiatric disease; cognitive neuroscience of perception,planning,action,motivation and memory; ion channel mechanisms; and much more.
