Description

Great book for even introductory readers like me who is trying to understand what goes on between ears. This book brought me up to speed and kept me reasonably current with the class through clear, straightforward speech and excellent scaffolding.

Bear was on the faculty of Brown University School of Medicine for 17 years where he held the Sidney and Dorothy Doctors Fox Chair in Visual Neuroscience. Acclaimed for its clear, friendly style, excellent illustrations, leading author team, and compelling theme of exploration, Neuroscience: Exploring the Brain, 4e takes a fresh, contemporary approach to the study of neuroscience, emphasizing the biological basis of behavior. The book includes clear illustrations and diagrams (that is, as clear as diagrams of brain wiring or second messenger cascades can be). Even though the first 6 chapters may seem familiar and’ve been already covered in physiology courses, it has its own taste and beauty and makes reading it feel like the first time.

Its way of simplifying complex concepts in a digestible writing without losing its powerful context is entirely captivating. It's not an easy book to read for a novice in the field but surely provides insights on the wonders of our brain and could be useful as a foundation for further studies in neuroscience, psycology and human behavior. I was actually surprised and disappointed when the book suddenly ended with so many questions left unanswered -- but I guess that's how science goes. In general terms, the concepts are explained extraordinarily well and in an arrangement that gradually builds an understanding of the underlying cellular mechanics so the reader (astoundingly) doesn't find themselves over their heads when later chapters paint the broader pictures of memory and learning. Needless to say, I was in over my head and had insane amounts of catching up to do once the first week of panic attacks dwindled.This edition's robust ancillary package includes a bound-in student CD-ROM, an Instructor's Resource CD-ROM, and resources online. Bear's laboratory has substantially advanced knowledge of how cerebral cortex is modified by experience. Fox and Dorothea Doctors Fox Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Science and Professor of Neuroscience at Brown University. I think this is the definitive textbook for laypeople or human science students (psychology) to begin seriously studying neuroscience.

The human genome has been sequenced, sophisticated new methods have been developed for genetic engineering, and new methods have been introduced to enable visualization and stimulation of specific types of nerve cells and connections in the brain. He made fundamental discoveries on bidirectional synaptic plasticity, metaplasticity, the molecular basis of amblyopia (a cause of visual disability in children), and the pathophysiology of fragile X syndrome (the most common inherited cause of intellectual disability and autism). I recommend this for anyone who wants to see the very basic connections between neuronal function and behavior. In the brain vasculature and mid-brain coronal/transverse section drawings, there is some confusing imagery that doesn't seem to match with its orthographic cross-section.Widely praised for its student-friendly style and exceptional artwork and pedagogy, Neuroscience: Exploring the Brain is a leading undergraduate textbook on the biology of the brain and the systems that underlie behavior. The authors' passion for the dynamic field of neuroscience is evident on every page, engaging students and helping them master the material. A neuroanatomy atlas insert (Appendix to Chapter 7) provides large images that highlight the anatomy of the brain, along with a self-quiz that gives students an opportunity to check their understanding. I leave you leave with questions to ponder--Is the brain the fundamental last frontier or is it the cosmos?
