Product Description: The Genius of Erasmus Darwin provides insight into the full extent of Erasmus Darwin's exceptional intellect. He is shown to be a major creative thinker and innovator, one of the minds behind the late eighteenth-century industrial revolution, and one of the first, if not the first, to perceive the living world (including humans) as part of a unified evolutionary scenario...read more

This edition of the popular text incorporates recent advances in neurobiology enabled by modern molecular biology techniques. Understanding how the brain works from a molecular level allows research to better understand behaviours, cognition, and neuropathologies. Since the appearance six years ago of the second edition, much more has been learned about the molecular biology of development and its relations with early evolution. This "evodevo" (as it has come to be known) framework also has a great deal of bearing on our understanding of neuropathologies as dysfunction of early onset genes can cause neurodegeneration in later life. Advances in our understanding of the genomes and proteomes of a number of organisms also greatly influence our understanding of neurobiology. * Well known and widely used as a text throughout the UK, good reviews from students and lecturers. * Good complement to Fundementals of Psychopharmacology by Brian Leonard. This book will be of particular interest to biomedical undergraduates undertaking a neuroscience unit, neuroscience postgraduates, physiologists, pharmacologists. It is also a useful basic reference for university libraries. Maurice Elphick, Queen Mary, University of London "I do like this book and it is the recommended textbook for my course in Molecular Neuroscience. The major strength of the book is the overall simplicity of the format both in terms of layout and diagrams."

A comprehensive and highly illustrated text providing a broad and invaluable overview of sensory systems at the molecular, cellular and neurophysiological level of vertebrates, invertebrates and prokaryotes. It retains a strong focus on human systems, and takes an evolutionary and comparative approach to review the mechanosenses, chemosenses, photosenses, and other sensory systems including those for detecting pain, temperature electric and magnetic fields etc. It incorporates exciting and significant new insights provided by molecular biology which demonstrate how similar the molecular architecture and physiology of sensory cells are across species and across sensory modality, often indicationg a common ancestry dating back over half a billion years. Written by a renowned author, with extensive teaching experience in the biology of sensory systems, this book includes: * Over 400 illustrations * Self-assessment questions * Full bibliography preceded by short bibliographical essays * Boxes containing useful supplementary material. It will be invaluable for undergraduates and postgraduates studying biology, zoology, animal physiology, neuroscience, anatomy, molecular biology, physiological psychology and related courses.
