When first published, "Neurons and Networks" filled the need for an introductory neuroscience text that is accessible, authoritative, logically organized, and concise. Avoiding the encyclopedic coverage that makes most neuroscience texts overwhelming, "Neurons and Networks" focused instead on building the solid foundation of understanding and knowledge required for further study. This edition retains the features that made the first edition so attractive: consistent emphasis on results and concepts that have stood the test of time; abundant high-quality illustrations; exceptionally clear explanations of technical terms. Completely revised and enlarged with six new chapters, the second edition is an introduction not just to neurobiology, but to all of behavioral neuroscience.
