Discovering Neurons is a collection of investigative laboratory experiments designed for the advanced undergraduate and the first or second year graduate student. In its three major sections, neurons are studied as: -- individual cells, including topics such as intracellular recording, immunocytochemistry, and HPLC-- forming connections, with experiments on tract tracing, information coding, and LTP, among others-- as coordinators of behavior, through approaches such as pharmacology, lesioning, and ethology.The fourth section focuses on techniques applicable to several experiments in the collection, including electrophysiology recording, surgery, anesthetics, and staining methods.See also Monoamine oxidase examples, 84, 244 levels in mouse brain, amphetamine administration and, 77 life cycle and amphetamines, 86 neurotransmitters. ...
