However, the material is treated in sufficient depth to make the book useful for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in behavioural neurobiology and neuroethology Behavioral Neurobiology provides a novel treatment of the neural basis of behavior.

Thomas Carew is an American neuroscientist whose interests center on the behavioral, cellular, and molecular analyses of learning and memory. I read them to pass the time, in fact – I justify this by pointing out to myself that it’s better than my other procrastinating tendencies I haven’t played sudoku in months!


Josh Riepe added it Jan 17, Voula Dexter marked it as to-read Jul 10, Therefore, rather than organizing the chapters around general themes, such as “Motor Systems” or “Learning and Memory,” the author presents in-depth “case studies” of individual animals; themes clearly emerge, but take on additional meaning by being considered in a real-world behavioral context.

Research [ edit ] Early in his career, in collaboration with Eric Kandel and colleagues, Carew provided the first evidence in Aplysia californica —the California sea slug—for both long-term memory and associative learning in this model system.

Carew’s research interests focus on the cellular and molecular basis of learning and memory, the neuronal basis of behavior, and mechanisms of information processing in the nervous system. His work htomas provide empirical support for the idea that different temporal phases of memory consolidation can be best identified not by their different temporal domains, but by their molecular signatures.

Antoni Barau added it Nov 06, Return to Book Page. We’re talking about fields of very specialised research that are at least behaioral years old, so to fit in a book like this, of course it’s compressed and glossed through.


Behavioral Neurobiology Thomas J. Feb 03, Reenie rated it really liked it Shelves: Each chapter is devoted to a different animal model – everything from seaslugs to grasshoppers to toads to bats to rats gets its turn – and the model organism survey format also gives an appreciation for the vast array of approaches that you can use to study neuroscience, in a form that I think would be readable even with the barest of science backgrounds, and introductory to new approaches and bodies of research for those of us that do.

The writing is engaging Carew doesn’t spare the puns, or the amusing observations about whichever invetebrate, pesty mammal, or irritating bird each chapter is devoted toand well balanced between explaining the background and getting in depth into how key experiments were run, and what they carwe.
