This new advanced level textbook introduces a novel way to learn and teach in the neurosciences. Features include: a building-block approach beginning with a clear and functional explanation of the molecular aspects of ion channels; an evaluation of the properties of excitable and secretory cells, compiled by summing up the different ion channels; an approach based on the examination of classic experiments, which avoids dogmatic statements and facilitates the understanding of more complex neuronal behaviour; over 400 illustrations to aid comprehension of the topics presented; and appendices that provide explanations of neurobiological techniques. This book helps students and teachers alike to view neurobiology in a molecular, cellular, and above all, experimental way which makes learning easier and more enjoyable.
