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.
