The second edition of Fundamental Neuroscience is shorter than the first one but covers the same comprehensive range of topics now focusing in contemporary neuroscience. New disciplines such as molecular biology, computer science, and psychology are all playing a fundamental role in the understanding of neuroscience. This edition covers these sciences as well as the latest advances in the fields of genetic and neuroimaging that added significantly to the understanding of cellular molecular biology and their behavior.

This textbook is a hardcover issue with its full content divided into seven sections, each one consisting of different multi-authored chapters. The subjects of interest include neuroscience, cellular and molecular neurosciences, nervous system development, sensory systems, motor systems, regulatory systems, and behavioral and cognitive neuroscience. Diagrams, colored illustrations, and electron microscope pictures illustrate and greatly facilitate the understanding of concepts.

We think this book is a valuable tool for neuroscientists in general, neuroscience researchers, medical school libraries, psychologists, neuro-pathologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons.
