Functional Morphology of the Nervous System in Vertebrates

  • Chapter
  • 80 Accesses

Abstract

The preceding chapter dealt with cellular, molecular, and morphogenetic considerations as they apply to the formation of neuronal structures. Several molecular aspects of neuronal differentiation were addressed, as well. This background will serve as a foundation for the discussion of functional morphology. Functional morphology in vertebrates is of particular interest to us in that it serves as the basis for our own higher associative brain and memory performance. A brief discussion of the invertebrate nervous system is presented in Chapt. 4.
