The Human Nervous System: Structure and Function
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The subject matter of this volume is comprised of an overview emphasizing fundamental and core information about the neuroscience of the human nervous system. In this regard the sixth edition has been improved upon from former volumes in this series, by the implementation of original illustrations. In this sixth edition, new data is presented on recent advances in molecular neurobiology, development and aging of the nervous system, cranial nerves, and plasticity and the nervous system. With this new material presented, the sixth edition of The Human Nervous System proves to surpass the high quality content already standard in this series.
