Brain Architecture: Understanding the Basic Plan (Medicine)

Brain Architecture: Understanding the Basic Plan (Medicine) Lowest new price: $28.95
Lowest used price: $16.37
List price: $36.95
Author: Larry W. Swanson
Brand: Larry W Swanson

Depending on your point of view the brain is an organ, a machine, a biological computer, or simply the most important component of the nervous system. How does it work as a whole? What are its major parts and how are they interconnected to generate thinking, feelings, and behavior? This book surveys 2,500 years of scientific thinking about these profoundly important questions from the perspective of fundamental architectural principles, and then proposes a new model for the basic plan of neural systems organization based on an explosion of structural data emerging from the neuroanatomy revolution of the 1970's
The importance of a balance between theoretical and experimental morphology is stressed throughout the book. Great advances in understanding the brain's basic plan brain have come especially from two traditional lines of biological thought- evolution and embryology, because each begins with the simple and progresses to the more complex. Understanding the organization of brain circuits, which contain thousands of links or pathways, is much more difficult. It is argued here that a four-system network model can explain the structure-function organization of the brain. Possible relationships between neural networks and gene networks revealed by the human genome project are explored in the final chapter.
The book is written in clear and sparkling prose, and it is profusely illustrated. It is designed to be read by anyone with an interest in the basic organization of the brain, from neuroscience to philosophy to computer science to molecular biology. It is suitable for use in neuroscience core courses because it presents basic principles of the structure of the nervous system in a systematic way.

DNA Methylation Protocols (Methods in Molecular Biology)

DNA Methylation Protocols (Methods in Molecular Biology) Lowest new price: $21.40
Lowest used price: $9.98
List price: $89.95
Brand: Brand: Humana Press

DNA Methylation Protocols offer a set of readily reproducible protocols of the analysis of DNA methylation and methylases. These powerful methods provide the tools necessary for studying methylation at both the global level and the level of sequence, and include many techniques for identifying genes that might be aberrantly methylated in cancer and aging. Additional methods cover genome-wide analysis of abnormal DNA methylation and the isolation and measurement of demethylases and related proteins.

Quantum Field Theory in Strongly Correlated Electronic Systems (Theoretical and Mathematical Physics)

Quantum Field Theory in Strongly Correlated Electronic Systems (Theoretical and Mathematical Physics) Lowest new price: $114.38
Lowest used price: $40.00
List price: $149.00
Author: Naoto Nagaosa
Brand: Naoto Nagaosa

In this book the author extends the concepts introduced in his Quantum Field Theory in Condensed Matter Physics to situations in which the strong electronic correlations are crucial for the understanding of the observed phenomena. Starting from a model field theory to illustrate the basic ideas, more complex systems are analyzed in turn. A special chapter is devoted to the description of antiferromagnets, doped Mott insulators, and quantum Hall liquids from the point of view of gauge theory.

Gene Cloning and DNA Analysis: An Introduction (Brown,Gene Cloning and DNA Analysis)

Gene Cloning and DNA Analysis: An Introduction (Brown,Gene Cloning and DNA Analysis) Lowest new price: $19.99
Lowest used price: $2.71
List price: $81.99
Author: T. A. Brown
Brand: Brand: Wiley-Blackwell

Known world-wide as the standard introductory text to this important and exciting area, the fifth edition of Gene Cloning and DNA Analysis addresses new and growing areas of research whilst retaining the philosophy of the previous editions. Assuming the reader has little prior knowledge of the subject its importance, the principles of the techniques used and their applications are all carefully laid out, with over 250 clearly presented two-colour illustrations.


In addition to a number of informative changes to the text throughout the book, the final four chapters have been significantly updated and extended to reflect the striking advances made in recent years in the applications of gene cloning and DNA analysis in biotechnology:



  • Extended chapter on agriculture including new material on glyphosate resistant plants
  • New section on the uses of gene cloning and PCR in archaeology
  • Coverage of ethical concerns relating to pharming, gene therapy and GM crops


Gene Cloning and DNA Analysis remains an essential introductory text to a wide range of biological sciences students; including genetics and genomics, molecular biology, biochemistry, immunology and applied biology. It is also a perfect introductory text for any professional needing to learn the basics of the subject. All libraries in universities where medical, life and biological sciences are studied and taught should have copies available on their shelves.

Protein Purification Protocols (Methods in Molecular Biology, Vol. 244)

Protein Purification Protocols (Methods in Molecular Biology, Vol. 244) Lowest new price: $53.12
Lowest used price: $37.75
List price: $229.00
Brand: Brand: Humana Press

The first edition of Protein Purification Protocols (1996), edited by Professor Shawn Doonan, rapidly became very successful. Professor Doonan achieved his aims of p- ducing a list of protocols that were invaluable to newcomers in protein purification and of significant benefit to established practitioners. Each chapter was written by an ex- rienced expert in the field. In the intervening time, a number of advances have w- ranted a second edition. However, in attempting to encompass the recent developments in several areas, the intention has been to expand on the original format, retaining the concepts that made the initial edition so successful. This is reflected in the structure of this second edition. I am indebted to Professor Doonan for his involvement in this new edition and the continuity that this brings. Each chapter that appeared in the original volume has been reviewed and updated to reflect advances and bring the topic into the 21st century. In many cases, this reflects new applications or new matrices available from vendors. Many of these have increased the performance and/or scope of the given method. Several new chapters have been introduced, including chapters on all the currently used protein fractionation and ch- matographic techniques. They introduce the theory and background for each method, providing lists of the equipment and reagents required for their successful execution, as well as a detailed description of how each is performed.
