Brain Slices in Basic and Clinical Research describes advancements in the field of brain function and dysfunction through use of central nervous system slice preparations. Topics are authored by leading scientists and include the following:
Most of the topics are published in book format for the first time, and some of the techniques are more fully detailed than in any other book.
