Fundamental Neuroscience is the only comprehensive text that defines the full scope of neuroscience. Developed in accordance with results of extensive reviews by neuroscience instructors, and in cooperation with the Association of Neuroscience Departments and Programs (ANDP), this text is divided into seven integrated sections. Each section may be used for a specific course, or the full text may be adopted to provide a broad-based curriculum that will carry the student from molecular to cognitive neuroscience.

Review quote

"Fundamental Neuroscience is a remarkable 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 scientists alike. I recommend it highly." -R. RANNEY MIZE, PH.D., LSU MEDICAL CENTER, NEW ORLEANS
