Overview

The latest edition of this well-established, accessible introduction to neurophysiology succeeds in integrating the disciplines of neurology and neuroscience with an emphasis on principles and functional concepts.

In Neurophysiology: A Conceptual Approach, Fifth Edition, the authors deliver a refreshing alternative to "learning by rote," employing a variety of techniques to encourage understanding. Readers can learn both the science underlying a particular phenomenon and what this means for individual body systems and for the body as a whole. The fifth edition retains the readable style of its predecessors—covering the entire subject of neurophysiology from the conduction of nerve impulses to the higher functions of the brain within a single accessible volume. A companion website offers free self-assessment material and access to the highly acclaimed NeuroLab resources

Full of color explanatory diagrams, the book is an unrivalled "one-stop shop" for students of medicine, physiology and applied physiology, neurophysiology, neuroscience, and other bioscience courses looking for an integrated introduction to the challenging disciplines of neuroscience and neurology.
