Comparative Neurobiology: Modes of Communication in the Nervous System

Front Cover
Melvin J. Cohen, Felix Strumwasser
Wiley, 1985 - Neurobiologie - Congrès - 397 pages
This application of comparative neurobiology examines a variety of vertebrates and invertebrates to delineate the neural processes of each in relation to its environment. Focusing on modes of communication within the nervous system itself and between the organism and its environment, the contributors address the fundamental topics of how nervous systems are constructed and organized, the interactions among their components, and how behavior is generated. Beginning with the development and plasticity of the nervous system, it covers modes of communication between cells processing data in the brain, as well as integrative brain processes that generate and control motor activity and behavior.
