This third edition is the new, thoroughly revised edition of the only current, established and authoritative text focusing on the cellular and molecular physiology of nerve cells. Previously titled Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology, the new title better reflects this focus. The book is hypothesis driven rather than just presenting the facts, and the content is firmly based on numerous experiments performed by the top experts in the field. While the book does cover the important facts, it also presents the background for how researchers arrived at this knowledge to provide a context for the field. It teaches not only how excitable cells work in detail, but also how to construct and conduct intelligent research experiments. This book promotes a real understanding of the function of nerve cells that is useful for practicing neurophysiologists and students in a graduate-level course on the topic alike.

Neurophysiologists, neurobiologists, neurologists, as well as graduate-level courses on neurophysiology.
