Succeeds in integrating the disciplines of neurology and neuroscience with an emphasis on principles and functional concepts.
The experienced authors offer a refreshing alternative to 'learning by rote', employing a variety of techniques to encourage understanding. In reading Neurophysiology: A conceptual approach, the student can learn both the science underlying a particular phenomenon, and what this means for individual body systems and, indeed, for the body as a whole. The fifth edition retains the readable style of its predecessors, while covering the enture subject of neurophysiology from the conduction of nerve impulses to the higher functions of the brain within a single accessible volume.
