Lazbat Ladipo marked it as to-read Jan 28, Neuroboology, rather than organizing the chapters around general themes, such as “Motor Systems” or “Learning and Memory,” the author presents in-depth “case studies” of individual animals; themes clearly emerge, but take on additional meaning by being considered in a real-world behavioral context.

Voula Dexter marked it as to-read Jul 10, Jon Tascher rated it it was amazing Jun 29, Anyway, regarding this book specifically – it’s written with undergrads in mind, and that’s pretty clear when you read it. Therefore, rather than organizing the chap Behavioral Neurobiology provides a novel treatment of the neural basis of behavior.

Want to Read saving…. Refresh and try again. Each chapter is devoted to a different animal model – everything from seaslugs to grasshoppers to toads to bats to rats gets its turn – and the model organism survey format also gives an appreciation for the vast array of approaches that you can use to study neuroscience, in a form that I think would be readable even with the barest of science backgrounds, and introductory to new approaches and bodies of research for those of us that do.

First, he was able to dissociate several different types of memory on both behavioral and synaptic levels, showing, for example, in contrast to a prevailing theoretical view, that it is possible to induce both intermediate-term and long-term synaptic changes underlying memory in the absence of short-term changes.


He served as Chair of the Department of Psychology thomws six years. Inhe moved to Yale University where he was the John M.

Carew’s research interests focus on the cellular and molecular basis of learning and memory, the neuronal basis of behavior, and mechanisms of information processing in the nervous system. It’s not complicated, and some of the fascinating stories in it are slightly dumbed down, if you’re familiar with the actual literature.

Josh Riepe added it Jan 17, The writing is engaging Carew doesn’t spare the puns, or the amusing observations about whichever invetebrate, pesty mammal, or irritating bird each chapter is devoted toand well balanced between explaining the background and getting in depth into how key experiments neurpbiology run, and what they showed.
