Description

Provides an overview of the developing nervous system, with particular emphasis on the vertebrate brain. This book is intended for final year undergraduates, graduate students and postdocs doing courses in developmental neurobiology. The extensive reference list is to make it a source book for teachers and researchers in the field.

This is an inexpensive yet important book on neural development. It should be in neurology, neurosurgery, and bioscience libraries.

Texte du rabat

An up to date and comprehensive overview of the developing nervous system, with particular emphasis on the vertebrate brain. The past two decades have witnessed dramatic advances in our understanding of neural development in both invertebrates and vertebrates, Recent advances in the molecular genetic basis of development mechanisms are integrated with a synthesis of the classical literature to provide coverage of the key events, from the first appearance of the nervous system in the early embryo through postnatal and later stages. The book is intended for final year undergraduates, graduate students and postdocs doing courses in developmental neurobiology. The extensive reference list will also make it a useful source book for teachers and researchers in the field.
