Dendrites are complex neuronal structures that receive and integrate synaptic input from other nerve cells. They therefore play a critical role in brain function. Although dendrites were discovered over a century ago, due to the development of powerful new techniques there has been a dramaticresurgence of interest in the properties and function of these beautiful structures. This is the third edition of the first book devoted exclusively to dendrites. It contains a comprehensive survey of the current state of dendritic research across a wide range of topics, from dendritic morphology, evolution, development, and plasticity through to the electrical, biochemical andcomputational properties of dendrites, and finally to the key role of dendrites in brain disease. The third edition has been thoroughly revised, with the addition of a number of new chapters and comprehensive updates or rewrites of existing chapters by leading experts.Dendrites will be of interest to researchers and students in neuroscience and related fields, as well as to anyone interested in how the brain works.
Greg Stuart is currently Head of the Eccles Institute of Neuroscience at the Australian National University (ANU), Canberra, Australia. He did his undergraduate at Monash University (Melbourne), before doing a PhD in Neuroscience at the ANU. After his PhD he worked for 5 years at the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research in Heidelb...
