About the Author

R. Glenn Northcutt is a professor in the Department of Neuroscience at the Unviersity of California, San Diego. Georg F. Striedter is a professor in the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior at the University of California, Irvine. He is the author of Neurobiology: A Functional Approach and Principles of Brain Evolution. --This text refers to the audioCD edition.


"If widely read and studied (and I hope it will be), the book could lead to researchers formulating new theories about the relationships between the brain's structure and its function by, as the authors advocate, forging closer links between neuroscience and evolutionary biology... don't think that
by reading the last chapter you'll get the gist and need not read the entire book. You do, cover to cover. Anything less and you're cheating yourself of a monumental pleasure and a rare opportunity to gain an invaluable education from what is, to my mind, a grand achievement." -- Susan Fitzpatrick,
Issues in Science and Technology

"...what most impressed me was the depth and comprehensive coverage of the historical and current literature on the origins, paleoecology, morphology, endothermy, physiology, and comparative neural and functional anatomy of basal chordates to crown vertebrates. Given this range of detailed coverage
this volume deserves to be read through at least twice. This volume is highly recommended for undergraduate majors and graduate students in the biological sciences, as well as for evolutionary and cognitive neuroscientists." -- Paul Tibbetts, Quarterly Review of Biology

"This volume is highly recommended for undergraduate majors and graduate students in the biological sciences, as well as for evolutionary and cognitive neuroscientists." -- Paul Tibbetts, Philosophy & Cognitive Science, University of Dayton, The Quarterly Review of Biology

--This text refers to the hardcover edition.
