The item was ok, in fact for a used book it was of very good quality!
Alessandro
This is a wonderful textbook, and like only a very few others I have read, is well written and interesting enough to be read as an excellent book.
C. Katz
This is a great textbook for any College introductory level neuroscience class.

Overall this is an excellent text for an undergraduate level course. It is the 3rd book on the subject that I've read and the best of the lot. It is much more conprehensive than the others, but does not get into the details of some graduate level books.

The content deserves a 5 star, but I gave it 4 stars overall because of a couple shortcomings. The graphics don't convey the 3 dimensionality of the anatomy. All of my anatomy texts do a far better job representing internal structures, and this becomes extremely important.

2nd, there are some areas overemphasized, some omissions, and a problem with the order of presentation. The chapter on attention tells me that one of the authors researches in this area. Sorry, it doesn't warrant a chapter. You know you're on the wrong track when you spend an entire page just explaining the minutiae of a single experiment. Second, there was no mention of intelligence. Yes it's a hotbutton issue. No excuse for ignoring it. Finally, issues were raised, such as fear or emotions, that use the same structure. It would be helpful to discuss the anatomy in more detail early on instead of introducing structures piecemeal.

Overall an excellent book.

Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful textbook, and like only a very few others I have read, is well written and interesting enough to be read as an excellent book. It is quite difficult to put down and I think most readers will find themselves reading more than is required for their class or reading it for pleasure alone. It is not a complete exhaustive reference on every topic in neuroscience, but it does not pretend to be (and I think it would lose some of its appeal to the intended audience if it did). For example, the brief mention of glial cells in chapter 2 was a little disappointing, then again, I have a textbook of close to a thousand pages on glial cells alone, but I think a little more coverage could have been given. But, there are additional resources given, which allows interested students to further explore concepts they have been introduced to in this text.

There is something to be said for a text that can be read cover to cover, with little strain, and give the reader a clear overview of the field.

Format: Hardcover
This book is really good for a general understanding of neuroscience and it has good pictures. This is really a beginning undergraduate level book and can be used as supplemental material for basic concepts when a student is starting to become more advanced, but it does not go into much detail. It is well-written and consequently easy to read. If you're looking for an introduction to neuroscience this is a good book. If you're looking for a reference book for higher level neuroscience this book won't meet standards.

Bear, Connors, Paradiso--"Neuroscience: Exploring the Brain" 3rd Ed. provides an excellent presentation of some very complex marterials. Many drawings illustrate the physiological processes. An accompanying DVD provides an adjunct to the learning process--learning by reading the text and learning by listening. Each chapter takes about 30 minutes to read. The book is well written and while technical is still comprehnsible for the neophyte. There is an accompanying website for extended tutorials.

The textbook makes an excellence use of multimedia and in-text graphics. This is a very visual textbook, which aids in the student's ability to understand the concepts discussed. The content isn't precisely specific, but there is enough scientific content to satisfy those interested in the physiology of the brain.

Format: Hardcover
You're probably purchasing this book because it's required for your survey course in neuroscience, and that's fine. In fact, it's pretty good for that purpose. But if you want a more rigorous treatment of the subject matter, then this book needs one or several serious supplements.

It's certainly the most "lickable" neuroscience textbook out there, due to its candy-coated drawings.

Pros:

-Current information

-Readability

-Clinical focus

-Profiling relevant human diseases (however largely non-rigorous)

-Profiling current scientists

-Presentation of some of the diagrams (colorful, do a fair job at synthesizing information)

It is not so good at:

-Thoroughness

-More realistic images (stained sections, slice preparations, fMRI images)

The two cons are a deal-breaker for me, however. For instructors I would recommend this book highly at the undergraduate level and only with a caveat to the graduate level.

this is a very basic introduction to neuroscience. I would only recommend it to those who have never taken a neuroscience course before. This book also came in much sooner than expected (1 week, instead of the estimated 3).
