Neuronal Networks in Brain Function, CNS Disorders, and Therapeutics, edited by two leaders in the field, offers a current and complete review of what we know about neural networks. How the brain accomplishes many of its more complex tasks can only be understood via study of neuronal network control and network interactions. Large networks can undergo major functional changes, resulting in substantially different brain function and affecting everything from learning to the potential for epilepsy.

With chapters authored by experts in each topic, this book advances the understanding of:

How the brain carries out important tasks via networks

How these networks interact in normal brain function

Major mechanisms that control network function

The interaction of the normal networks to produce more complex behaviors

How brain disorders can result from abnormal interactions

How therapy of disorders can be advanced through this network approach

This book will benefit neuroscience researchers and graduate students with an interest in networks, as well as clinicians in neuroscience, pharmacology, and psychiatry dealing with neurobiological disorders.
