Abstract:

Forlagets beksrivelse: A classy introductory text to how the nervous system works highlighting the challenges, controversies, and uncertainties in neuroscience. The 15 contributors (neurobiology, Duke U. Medical Center) extend both their talents in neuroscience and teaching in a systematic outline of the nervous system's organization, neural signaling, sensation and sensory processing, movement and its central control, brain development, and complex brain function including discussions of cognition, sleep, and sexuality. Includes quality color illustrations and photographs.
