Review quote

"For the most part, the editors have successfully attempted the art of the primer... And among this book's 83 contributors, limited to up to six pages each, there is something for every taste... this is one slim book that one hopes will fatten with time and have many lives."--TRENDS IN NEUROSCIENCE
