The Neuron

Cell and Molecular Biology

Third Edition

Irwin B. Levitan, Ph.D. and Leonard K. Kaczmarek, Ph.D.

The Neuron provides an up-to-date comprehensive first course in the biology of nerve cells. It explains how the latest breakthroughs in genomic mapping and imaging techniques have illuminated the mechanisms by which a neuron generates varied patterns of electrical activity and transfers this information to other neurons. It also covers the molecular factors that shape the development of the mature nervous system and allow it to generate phenomena such as learning and memory.
