About this book


"Both teacher and reader will find here a careful presentation of both text and illustrations. The writing is clear, the organization is logical, and the illustrations are appropriate... this book is indeed good value." (TINS)
"...the author has met his objective of whetting the appetite of his readers and encouraging the further pursuit of the subject." (Journal of Anatomy)
"Brown argues (correctly in this reviewer's opinion) that neuroscience is primarily an experimental endeavor and therefore is taught best by presenting udergraduate students with the methods as well as the data of "classical" neurophysiological experiments. To this end, Brown has done a good job of supporting basic ideas with actual experimental methodology and results." (Choice)
