Molecular Biology of the Neuron

R. Wayne Davies and Brian Morris

Abstract

Neurons are arguably the most complex of all cells. From the action of these cells comes movement, thought, and consciousness. It is a challenging task to understand what molecules direct the various diverse aspects of their function. This has produced an ever-increasing amount of molecular information about neurons. This book teaches about the molecules that control information flow in the brain or the progress of brain disease, it also includes access to a wealth of detailed information from a wide range of topics impacting different related fields of endeavour. In the six years since the fi ... More

Keywords: movement, thought, consciousness, molecular information, brain disease, neuronal function
