McCormick -- Molecular properties of ion channels / Lily Yeh Jan and Yuh Nung Jan -- Dynamical properties of excitable membranes / Douglas A. Baxter, Carmen C. Canavier and John H. Byrne -- Release of neurotransmitters / Robert S. Zucker, Dimitri M. Kullmann and Thomas L. Schwarz -- Pharmacology and biochemistry of synaptic transmission : classic transmitters / Ariel Y. Deutch and Robert H. Roth -- Nonclassic signaling in the brain / Ariel Y. Deutch and James L. Roberts -- Neurotransmitter receptors / M. Neal Waxham -- Intracellular signaling / Howard Schulman -- Regulation of neuronal gene expression and protein synthesis / James L. Roberts and James R. Lundblad -- Mathematical modeling and analysis of intracellular signaling pathways / Paul D. Smolen, John H. Byrne and Douglas A. Baxter -- Cell-cell communication : an overview emphasizing gap junctions / David C. Spray, Eliana Scemes, Renato Rozental and Rolf Dermietzel -- Postsynaptic potentials and synaptic integration / John H. Byrne -- Information processing in complex dendrites / Gordon M. Shepherd -- Learning and memory : basic mechanisms / Thomas H. Brown, John H. Byrne, Kevin S. LaBar, Joseph E. LeDoux, Derick H. Lindquist, Richard F. Thompson and Timothy J. Teyler.
Summary: As the basic building block of the nervous system, a thorough understanding of the neuron is crucial for any level of analysis. This text provides the solid foundation of the morphological, biochemical, and biophysical properties of nerve cells that is needed by advanced undergraduates and graduate students, as well as researchers in need of a thorough reference. * Highly referenced for readers to pursue topics of interest in greater detail * Unique coverage of the application of mathematical modeling and simulation approaches not found in other textbooks * Richly illustrated, four color presentation throughout * Includes CD-ROM of all of the illustrations.
