Summary Updates throughout this new edition includes a new chapter on formation, modification, and repair of connections, with coverage of learning and memory. As well as the coming revolution of ways to fix damaged nervous systems, trophic factors, stem cells, and more. 550 full-color illustrations (more than 650 in all) support the text and depict every nuance of brain function. The book incorporates 3-dimensional brain images and more than 650 illustrations that add increased visual clarity and a greater understanding of every concept. Includes a glossary of key terms that elucidates every part of the text. Features updates throughout, as well as many new illustrations using the most current neuroimaging techniques, reflecting recent developments and changes in understanding to acquaint you with the very latest knowledge in the field. Discusses the hot topic of neural plasticity in a new chapter on formation, modification, and repair of connections, with coverage of learning and memory, as well as the coming revolution in ways to fix damaged nervous systems, trophic factors, stem cells, and more
