Handbook of in Vivo Neural Plasticity Techniques, Volume 28: A Systems Neuroscience Approach to the Neural Basis of Memory and Cognition gives a comprehensive overview of the current methods and approaches that are used to study neural plasticity from a systems neuroscience perspective. In addition, the book offers in-depth methodological advice that provides the necessary foundation for researchers establishing methods and students who need to understand the theoretical and methodological bases of these approaches. This is the ideal resource for anyone new to the study of cognitive and behavioral neuroscience who seeks an introduction to state-of-the-art techniques.
- Offers a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art approaches to studying neuroplasticity in vivo
- Combines discussions of theoretical underpinnings with the methodological and technical aspects necessary to guarantee success
- Arranged in a uniform format that clearly and concisely lays out descriptions, methods and the pitfalls of various techniques
