Beschreibung

Sidney Ochs begins his survey with a chronological look at the history of nerves from the fifth century B.C. to the early eighteenth century to demonstrate the development of our knowledge of the molecular mechanisms of neuronal function. Ochs then adopts a thematic approach, considering key topics from the eighteenth century to the present. The volume will serve as an invaluable resource for historians of neuroscience and medicine, philosophers of science and medicine, and neuroscientists.

Pressestimmen

'Sidney Ochs provides a richly referenced background to the evolution of our knowledge of the nature of normal conduction in the PNS and muscle. ... he does provide a detailed account of the history and background of his own important work on the nature and function of transport mechanisms in nerve. ... the book is an enjoyable and instructive read.' Brain 'This is an interesting book about the historical perspectives of nerve function ...'. Neurological Research 'It would be difficult to identify any book in recent years that could provide as much excitement and profound insight into this field in the context of its broad history... it would be difficult to match the informed succinct style of this remarkable pioneer who has bought us his wonderfully readable reflections on the origins of those questions that continue to attract and to inspire increasing numbers of talented individuals to the benches of neuroscience research.' Journal of the History of the Neuroscienes
