Neuroscience LabFax is a comprehensive collection of the most up-to-date methods and data available in neuroscience, addressing issues from the molecular and biophysical to the cellular and systems level of analysis. Complemented by excellent diagrams, the information is clearly presented and easily accessible. Neuroscience LabFax has a broad-based interdisciplinary focus, integrating methods and data from cellular and molecular neuroscience, biophysics and behavior. This volume covers electrophysical recording, neuronal cell culture, preparation of tissues for microscopy or analysis, and molecular biology and neurobiology techniques. Written by experts in the field, this text is essential for neuroscientists from all subdisciplines, for those new to the field as well as experienced researchers.
