In the sixth edition of From Neuron to Brain, you will find a readable, up-to-date text that can be used in undergraduate, graduate, and medical school neuroscience courses. In this edition, experiments done with electrical recording devices, molecular and cellular biological techniques, and behavioral studies of the nervous system are emphasized, from simple reflexes to cognitive functions. Initially, an idea is developed and then new discoveries are made in laboratories and clinics.
Any curious person who is intrigued by the nervous system’s workings, regardless of their background in biological sciences, will find From Neuron to Brain fascinating.
I found that From Neuron to Brain gave the most comprehensive coverage of the topics for my course, in an easily understandable format and with a level of detail that was appropriate for advanced undergraduate students., Stephen Meriney, University of Pittsburgh
This book contextualizes neuroscience through experimental findings. As a result, students gain a deeper understanding of neuroscience through the adventure stories of experimental discovery.,J. David Spafford, University of Waterloo
