Acclaimed for its clear, friendly style, excellent illustrations, leading author team, and compelling theme of exploration, Neuroscience: Exploring the Brain, 4e takes a fresh, contemporary approach to the study of neuroscience, emphasizing the biological basis of behavior. The authors' passion for the dynamic field of neuroscience is evident on every page, engaging students and helping them master the material.In just a few years, the field of neuroscience has been transformed by exciting new technologies and an explosion of knowledge about the brain. The human genome has been sequenced, sophisticated new methods have been developed for genetic engineering, and new methods have been introduced to enable visualization and stimulation of specific types of nerve cells and connections in the brain. The new Fourth Edition has been fully updated to reflect these and other rapid advances in the field, while honoring its commitment to be student-friendly with striking new illustrations, additional animations, and an unparalleled array of online resources.

Om bidragsyterne

Barry Connors is the L. Herbert Ballou University Professor of Neuroscience and a Professor of Medical Science at Brown University and the Alpert Medical School. He is also a member of the Carney Institute for Brain Science at Brown. Dr. Connors received a B.S. from the University of Dayton, a Ph.D. in physiology and pharmacology from Duke University in 1979, and then pursued postdoctoral training with David Prince and Stephen Waxman at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He was a faculty member at Stanford from 1982 to 1987, and was recruited to Brown in 1987. He served as Chair of theDepartment of Neuroscience at Brown from 2006 to 2016. Dr. Connors' research has revealed cellular properties of the cerebral cortex and the thalamus, functions of electrical and chemical synapses, and the behavior of small neural networks in the mammalian brain. His current work focuses on neural dynamics of the forebrain during normal behavior and the seizures of epilepsy, and on the roles of neuronal and synaptic dysfunctions in neurodevelopmental disorders. He has been awarded a Klingenstein Fellowship in the Neurosciences, a Research Career Development Award from NIH, a Javits Neuroscience Investigator Award from NIH, and was elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He has served on the editorial boards of numerous journals, including the Journal of Neuroscience, Journal of Neurophysiology, Cerebral Cortex, and Brain Structure and Function.
