Cephalopods (octopus, squid, cuttlefish) are among the most intelligent invertebrates, with highly developed nervous systems which provide excellent model systems for investigating basic questions in neuroscience. In 32 chapters, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the functioning of the cephalopod nervous system, from the cellular level to their complex sensory systems, locomotion, learning and social behaviour. This book is aimed at advanced students and researchers in neuroscience and marine biology.

Reviews for Cephalopod Neurobiology: Neuroscience Studies in Squid, Octopus and Cuttlefish

The first four parts of the book, which concern the structure of the squid axon, ion channels, axon-Schwann cell interaction, and the giant synapse of the squid, present in a clear and concise form practically everything that has been done in the field. The volume as a whole will be very useful to newcomers to the neurobiology of cephalopods. * P. Balaban, The Russian Academy of Sciences, TINS, Vol. 19, No. 3, 1996 *
