"Fundamental Neuroscience, 3rd Edition" introduces graduate and upper-level undergraduate students to the full range of contemporary neuroscience. Addressing instructor and student feedback on the previous edition, all of the chapters are rewritten to make this book more concise and student-friendly than ever before. Each chapter is once again heavily illustrated and provides clinical boxes describing experiments, disorders, and methodological approaches and concepts.A companion web site contains test questions, and an imagebank of the figures for ready use in presentations, slides, and handouts. Capturing the promise and excitement of this fast-moving field, "Fundamental Neuroscience, 3rd Edition" is the text that students will be able to reference throughout their neuroscience careers! The features new to this edition include: 30 percent new material, including new chapters on Dendritic Development and Spine Morphogenesis, Chemical Senses, Cerebellum, Eye Movements, Circadian Timing, Sleep and Dreaming, and Consciousness; companion website with figures, web links to additional material, and test questions; additional text boxes describing key experiments, disorders, methods, and concepts; multiple model system coverage beyond rats, mice, and monkeys; and, extensively expanded index for easier referencing.

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION:
"Fundamental Neuroscience is a remarkable resource... an extraordinarily detailed and comprehensive textbook with superb illustrations. I suspect it will become a definitive source of information in the field of neuroscience. It is ideal both as a textbook for graduate students and as a reference for teachers and research scientists alike. I recommend it highly."
-R. Ranney Mize, Past President, Association of Neuroscience Departments and Programs (ANDP)
"...this remarkable textbook is laid out in seven sections, covering in turn cellular and molecular neuroscience, nervous system development, sensory systems, motor systems, regulation of the body by the brain, and finally, behavioral and cognitive aspects of higher brain function. The origin of the book is significant...remarkable collection of both color and black-and-white illustrations... a considerable achievement..."
-Richard G.M. Morris in NATURE NEUROSCIENCE
"Neuroscience is a broad field built upon concerted activities of numerous heterogeneous disciplines, and continuous efforts of integration are imperative. Fundamental Neuroscience represents such efforts and helps readers to comprehend the whole scope of neuroscience, a field which is rapidly growing in many directions, including clinical research and application."
-Masao Ito, Riken Brain Science Institute
"The presentation of material is clear, well-focused, right up-to-date and magnificently illustrated with excellent figures, tables and wonderful molecular diagrams. It excels in providing a neuroscientific basis for clinical neurological diseases. I found it to be a superb text of interdisciplinary neuroscience." -Roger N. Rosenberg, Zale Distinguished Chair and Professor of Neurology, University Of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas
