"Development of the Nervous System" presents a broad and basic
treatment of the established and evolving principles of neural
development as exemplified by key experiments and observations from
past and recent times. The text is organized ontogenically. It
begins with the emergence of the neural primordium and takes a
chapter-by-chapter approach in succeeding events in neural
development: patterning and growth of the nervous system, neuronal
determination, axonal navigation and targeting, neuron survival and
death, synapse formation and developmental plasticity. Finally, in
the last chapter, with the construction phase nearing completion,
we examine the emergence of behavior. This new edition reflects the
complete modernization of the field that has been achieved through
the intensive application of molecular, genetic, and cell
biological approaches. It is richly illustrated with color
photographs and original drawings. Combined with the clear and
concise writing, the illustrations make this a bookthat is well
suited to students approaching this intriguing field for the first
