Description

Although the major features of neural development have been known for the better part of a century, it is only in the past decade or so that the underlying molecular and cellular mechanisms have begun to be uncovered. This text provides a broad but authoritative view of the cellular and molecular aspects of developmental neurobiology written by leaders in the field.show more
