"Development of the Nervous System" presents a broad treatment of the basic principles of neural development as exemplified by key experiments and observations from past and recent times. The text is organized ontogenically, beginning from the induction of the neural primordium and leading to the emergence of behavior. It covers all the major topics that would form the basis of a comprehensive undergraduate curriculum along the way including the patterning and growth of the nervous system, neuronal determination, axonal navigation and targeting, neuron survival and death, synapse formation and plasticity. The new text reflects the complete modernization of the field that has been achieved through the use of model organisms, the intensive application of molecular and genetic approaches, and the introduction of new imaging technologies. "Development of the Nervous System" is richly illustrated with color photographs and original drawings. These illustrations, combined with clear, concise writing make this a book that is well suited to students approaching this intriguing field for the first time. It updates information including all the new developments made in the field since the first edition. It is now in full color throughout, with the original, artist-rendered drawings from the first edition completely redone, revised, colorized, and updated. It includes a CD-ROM with all of the images from the book.

"The images are vastly superior to the first edition and the CD with images is a big help for lectures... for now it might be reasonable to call it the best text available for Developmental Neurobiology." Stuart Tobet, Department of Biolomedical Sciences, Colorado State University "This second edition of Development of the Nervous System is very impressive and a great improvement on the first edition which I have used for the last 4 years in my course. The authors should be very proud of such a fine product." --Ford F. Ebner, Professor of Psychology and Cell and Developmental Biology, Neuroscience, Vanderbilt University, Tennessee, USA Praise for the First Edition: "...a truly excellent text that will serve to excite new students in neuroscience and development for years to come...[The authors] imbue their text with enthusiasm, which combined with a scholarly and methodical review of the history of developmental neurology, generates a shockingly easy to read and interesting text." --TRENDS IN NEUROSCIENCES (May 2001) "Clearly and accurately written, beautifully illustrated and thoughtfully organized, this book covers everything from neural induction to the ontogeny of behavior in a style that is easily accessible to students." --RONALD W. OPPENHEIM, Ph.D., Department of Neurobiology & Anatomy, Wake Forest University, Bowman Gray Medical School "The book provides a scholarly review of the past and a carefully pruned view of the present. With relief, I can add that it is written in a clear, accessible style that students will appreciate." --Sally Temple, NATURE NEUROSCIENCE "I certainly intend to make this book required reading for our own graduate course in Developmental Neuroscience." --JOHN L. BIXBY, Neuroscience Program, University of Miami, School of MedicineAbout the Author:
