Editorial Reviews

Review

"As a textbook for advanced courses and reference work for anyone whose interests touch on vertebrate neuroanatomy...it is a uniquely valuable single-volume survey." (The Quarterly Review of Biology, June 2006)

"...well written and can be a valuable reading material for basic understanding of the brain and its adaptation." (American Association of Anatomists Newsletter, March 2006)

From the Publisher

This unique book explores the evolution of the vertebrate nervous system, focusing on brain systems' functions and their relationship to behavior, adaptation and survival. Presents the material in a step-by-step manner to ease the reader's entry into this complex but captivating subject and to demonstrate how surprisingly similar the brains of vertebrates are in some ways while being extremely diverse in other ways. Takes into account additional cranial nerves, both known and newly recognized ones, which are not included in the "traditional twelve." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Michael L. Wyatt on November 24, 1999
Format: Hardcover
This ambitious evolutionary approach to the vertebrate nervous system gives the student all the tools needed to proceed with the advanced (3-volume)works of Crosby, et al (paleo) and Niuwenhuys, et al(neo). The text is well organized and has only a slight amount of redundancy. Would hope the next edition would have improved and possibly colorful figures. This will become the only "one volume" classic of vertebrate comparative neuroanatomy.

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Howard Schneider on November 25, 2000
Format: Hardcover
While the title of this reference may sound formidable, it is actually suitable for the motivated general reader, and is far clearer than typical neuroanatomy textbooks. Neuroanatomy across the vertebrate lines is considered, with explanations of underlying neuronal and neuroanatomical principles.

This a technical book, with evolutionary view of Nervous System.
The reader must have understanding of anatomy and neurophisiology.
Very Good!

Format: Hardcover
This is a valuable text for understanding the why's and wherefore's of neuroanatomy in vertebrates and a great resource for research in cognitive neuroscience and behavioral neurobiology when comparing neuroanatomy within and across species.
