Basic Neuroscience: Anatomy & Physiology
This work explains how the brain functions in normal and abnormal states. It emphasizes the neural tracks and functional neural interconnections among parts of the central peripheral nervous system and explains the biophysics of nerve cell function. It also features synoptic transmission and functional circuits, pain processes, motor function and the visual system. Full-colour drawings illustrate the total gross anatomy of the nervous system.
