not yet rated|write a review
Uniquely bridging all levels of neurobiological analysis, this book describes and explains step-by-step the concepts, methods, findings and conclusions of modern learning research. The text starts with a treatment of simple nervous systems and molecular mechanisms, proceeds to more complexlearning and development, and concludes with the functional organization of highly complex memory systems in the human brain and their disintegration in amnesia. The book, supplemented by 1100 references and many illustrations, is intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses, as well asfor neuroscientists who seek a comprehensive overview of the field. It should also be of interest to scientists from other disciplines and to other readers who wish to learn about the new neurobiology of learning.

From Our Editors

This is the first book on the neurobiology of learning and memory that covers comprehensively all levels of analysis, from molecules to brain, in both invertebrates and vertebrates, from molluscs to man. The book addresses in a provocative, stimulating, and lucid manner the major questions, concepts, and experimental approaches in the biology of learning and memory, and describes, analyses, and integrates recent findings and hypotheses. The result is a fascinating, clear, and balanced picture of the state of the art at one of the frontiers of brain research.
