Neil R. Carlson
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
NOTE: This is a standalone book.
Helps apply the research findings of behavioral neuroscience to daily life.
The ninth edition of Foundations of Behavioral Neuroscience offers a concise introduction to behavioral neuroscience. The text incorporates the latest studies and research in the rapidly changing fields of neuroscience and physiological psychology. The theme of strategies of learning helps readers apply these research findings to daily life. Foundations of Behavioral Neuroscience is an ideal choice for the instructor who wants a concise text with a good balance of human and animal studies.

understanding of the beginning and the fate of our universe justifies their efforts. The pursuit of knowledge is itself a worthwhile endeavor. Surely, the attempt to understand the universe within us—our nervous system, which is responsible for all that we are or can be—is also valuable.

Dendritic spines cytoskeleton Support structure formed of microtubules and other protein fibers that are linked to each other and form a cohesive mass that gives a cell its shape. enzyme A molecule that controls a chemical reaction, combining two substances or breaking a substance into two parts. axoplasmic transport An active process by which substances are propelled along microtubules
occur one after the other—and controlling sequences of behavior. (In a few people the functions of the left and right hemispheres are reversed.) The serial functions that are performed by the left hemisphere include verbal activities, such as talking, understanding the speech of other people, reading, and writing. These abilities are disrupted by damage to the various regions of the left hemisphere. In contrast, the right hemisphere is specialized for synthesis; it is particularly good at putting
erections (Culotta and Koshland, 1992). It may also play a role in the establishment of neural changes that are produced by learning. All of the neurotransmitters and neuromodulators discussed so far (with the exception of anandamide and adenosine) are stored in synaptic vesicles and released by terminal buttons. Nitric oxide is produced in several regions of a nerve cell—including dendrites—and is released as soon as it is produced. More accurately, it diffuses out of the cell as soon as it is
