Summary Immediate Early Genes (IEGs) are a class of genes that are rapidly expressed without new protein synthesis and, in most cases, in direct response to synaptic input. This book reviews and details experiments and theories, showing how IEG research is being used to advance our understanding of static and active brain circuits
