The Synaptic Organization of the Brain
Gordon M. Shepherd
Oxford University Press, 1998 - Science - 638 pages
In this volume, leading authorities have joined together to provide accounts of the best understood brain regions. Each contributor uses the same format in covering the neural elements, synaptic connections, basic circuits, physiology, pharmacology, dendritic properties and functional implications of brain structures, so that readers can easily recognize common principles and specific adaptations. A new chapter on the cochlear nucleus highlights the neural basis of audition, and supplements the analyses of vision in the retina, lateral geniculate and visual cortex, and of olfaction in the olfactory bulb and cortex.
