In order to understand the brain, you must understand how the individual molecules and cells of the nervous system function and ultimately contribute to human behaviour. This text is an account of what is known about the functioning of the brain at the level of molecules and cells. It takes readers from the fundamentals to the most sophisticated concepts and latest discoveries: from membrane potentials to experiments on lotage-gatred ion channels; from descriptions of receptors, G proteins, effector molecules, and secondary messengers to an account of understanding of long-term potential. In each chapter, Gordon Fain discusses individual experiments that have made important contributions to knowledge and that illustrate the techniques and approaches that have formed present views of nerve cell function.
