The second edition of this highly acclaimed textbook was thoroughly revised to incorporate a multitude of recent research findings in neuroscience. A new chapter on molecular neurobiology was added and the basic concepts of the synapse, impulse, neurotransmitters, and neuromodulators were put on a molecular basis. The author greatly extended the treatment of developmental and memory mechanisms and also introduced the field of neuroimmunology.

A very dense book with a wealth of knowledge, very directly written, with good illustrations. It assumes the reader is well versed in biological and chemical nomenclature. Read full review

Review: Neurobiology

User Review  - Lance - Goodreads

I read this in an attempt to figure out what's wrong with me. The attempt failed. I learned a lot from reading this though the chemistry was over my head. Should I learn more about chemistry, I'll reread this. Read full review
