Summary: Foundations of Neurobiology is the first book on the subject conceived and written exclusively for undergraduate biology students--a concise, principles-oriented text that spans the entire field of neurobiology from molecules to the mind. With only general biology as a prerequisite, the book takes a broad, conceptual, comparative approach, introducing the principles of vertebrate and invertebrate neural function in all sensory systems.

  • Introductory level. No prerequisites above the sophomore level required.
  • Broad, comparative scope. Coverage encompasses all areas of neurobiology and all sensory systems and is enhanced with both vertebrate and invertebrate examples to demonstrate how animals differ in their physiological adaptations.
  • Conceptual emphasis. The book focuses on principles and their relation to neural function, bringing in details and methods where relevant to explain underlying concepts.
  • Boxed essays on experimental techniques. These highlight experiments in a number of neuroscience areas, exposing students to both classical and cutting-edge research methods.
  • Coverage of neuroethology. No other undergraduate course offers significant coverage of the neurological bases of behavior in animals--Delcomyn's comparative organismal approach articulates the concepts step-by-step, building from cells to circuits to behaviors.
  • Pedagogy includes boldfaced terms, a glossary, concept summaries at the end of each section, and annotated readings and references.
