This 3rd edition contains a comprehensive survey of the current state of dendritic research across a wide range of topics, from dendritic morphology, evolution, development, and plasticity through to the electrical, biochemical and computational properties of dendrites, and finally to the key role of dendrites in brain disease.

Dendrites are complex neuronal structures that receive and integrate synaptic input from other nerve cells. They therefore play a critical role in brain function. Although dendrites were discovered over a century ago, due to the development of powerful new techniques there has been a dramatic resurgence of interest in the properties and function of these beautiful structures.

This is the third edition of the first book devoted exclusively to dendrites. It has been thoroughly revised, with each chapter updated or completely rewritten by leading experts, plus the addition of a number of new chapters. "Dendrites" will be of interest to researchers and students in neuroscience and related fields, as well as to anyone interested in how the brain works.

Key Features:

  • 25 chapters by leading experts - Provides expert and up-to-date information
  • Chapters progress from the morphology, evolution, and development of dendrites, to their unique properties and function, as well as their role in plasticity and disease
  • Provides a logical and comprehensive flow of information on the topic
