With over 300 training programs in neuroscience currently in existence, demand is great for a comprehensive textbook that both introduces graduate students to the full range of neuroscience, from molecular biology to clinical science, but also assists instructors in offering an in-depth course in neuroscience to advanced undergraduates. The second edition of "Fundamental Neuroscience" accomplishes all this and more. The thoroughly revised text features over 25 per cent new material including completely new chapters, illustrations, and a CD-ROM containing all the figures from the text. More concise and manageable than the previous edition, this book has been retooled to better serve its audience in the neuroscience and medical communities. The key features include: it is logically organized into 7 sections, with uniform editing of the content for a "one-voice" feel throughout all 54 chapters; it includes numerous text boxes with concise, detailed descriptions of specific experiments, disorders, methodological approaches, and concepts; and, it is well-illustrated with over 850 full color figures, also included on the accompanying CD-ROM.

"...an outstanding, comprehensive reference for clinicians, students, and neuroscientists." -AMERICAN NEUROLOGICAL ASSOCIATION (2003) "...that this is the most comprehensive text in the field today...anyone looking for the definitive text in neuroscience need look no further. This one is it...highly recommended for graduate and advanced undergraduate students."-LIFE SCIENCE BOOK REVIEW(2003) PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION: "Fundamental Neuroscience is a remarkable resource... an extraordinarily detailed and comprehensive textbook with superb illustrations. I suspect it will become a definitive source of information in the field of neuroscience. It is ideal both as a textbook for graduate students and as a reference for teachers and research scientists alike. I recommend it highly." -R. Ranney Mize, Past President, Association of Neuroscience Departments and Programs (ANDP) "...this remarkable textbook is laid out in seven sections, covering in turn cellular and molecular neuroscience, nervous system development, sensory systems, motor systems, regulation of the body by the brain, and finally, behavioral and cognitive aspects of higher brain function. The origin of the book is significant...remarkable collection of both color and black-and-white illustrations... a considerable achievement..." -Richard G.M. Morris in NATURE NEUROSCIENCE "Neuroscience is a broad field built upon concerted activities of numerous heterogeneous disciplines, and continuous efforts of integration are imperative. Fundamental Neuroscience represents such efforts and helps readers to comprehend the whole scope of neuroscience, a field which is rapidly growing in many directions, including clinical research and application." -Masao Ito, Riken Brain Science Institute "The presentation of material is clear, well-focused, right up-to-date and magnificently illustrated with excellent figures, tables and wonderful molecular diagrams. It excels in providing a neuroscientific basis for clinical neurological diseases. I found it to be a superb text of interdisciplinary neuroscience." -Roger N. Rosenberg, Zale Distinguished Chair and Professor of Neurology, University Of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas
