- "Handbook of Brain Microcircuits comprehensively illustrates how the concept of microcircuits is emerging as one of the major organizing principles of the nervous system." "A major challenge in neuroscience is to synthesize multidisciplinary data to give insight into brain function. The organization of neurons into microcircuits has emerged as a main theme to accomplish this. The wiring diagrams for these microcircuits are increasingly serving as canonical representations that enhance understanding of the basic functional organization of a region, focus experimental and theoretical tests of its functional properties, and facilitate comparisons with other regions." "This information has been widely dispersed in the literature, which is here synthesized for over 40 regions of the vertebrate and invertebrate nervous system. In order to focus on principles, each chapter is brief, organized around 1-3 wiring diagrams of the key circuits, with several pages of text that distil the functional significance of each microcircuit." ""This outstanding volume...is essential reading for anyone participating in the exploration or following the understanding of brain circuits as an observer. The 52 chapters in this volume come from the world's leading experts on microcircuits, and it covers a wide span of topics ranging from chemotaxis in C. elegans to microcircuitry of the primate prefrontal cortex."---John H. Byrne, PhD June and Virgil Waggoner Chair and Chairman, Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy, The University of Texas Medical School at Houston, Houston, TX" ""Neural microcircuits provide fundamental units of processing....The comprehensive view offered by this book provides an essential and unique insight to all investigators engaged in the very demanding endeavor of understanding how the brain works, both concerning its diversity and its unifying concepts."--- Marina Bentivoglio, MD Department of Neuroscience, Faculty of Medicine, University of Verona, Verona, Italy" ""Neural circuits have come of age....This book...provides a series of success stories illustrating how the structure and function of neural circuits are being probed in the modern era. It will be highly valuable not only for the cognoscenti but also for inspiring a new generation to enter this flourishing field."---Prof Michael Hausser Professor of Neuroscience, Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research, University College London, United Kingdom"--BOOK JACKET.
