Hudspeth, PhD 900 full-color illustrations Deciphering the link between the human brain and behavior has always been one of the most intriguing and often challenging aspects of scientific endeavor. The sequencing of the human genome, and advances in molecular biology, have illuminated the pathogenesis of many neurological diseases and have propelled our knowledge of how the brain controls behavior. To grasp the wider implications of these developments and gain a fundamental understanding of this dynamic, fast-moving field,Principles of Neurosciencestands alone as the most authoritative and indispensible resource of its kind. In this widely respected volume, prominent researchers in the field expertly survey the entire spectrum of neural science, giving an up-to-date, unparalleled view of the discipline for anyone who studies brain and mind. Here, in one remarkable volume, is the current state of neural science knowledge ranging from molecules and cells, to anatomic structures and systems, to the senses and cognitive functions all supported by more than 900 precise, full-color illustrations.
