This book is very suitable for electrophysiology course and from this point of view met my expectations as regards usage for university students. The principal aspects of eletrophysiology is commented in this book. It is very good for begginers on this facinating topic.
It's really interesting and even though the last edition came out forever ago, it isn't dated. What can I say? David Aidley's 4th edition text is superb for the graduate student in experimental cellular neurophysiology. This text does not cover neuroanatomy or systems neurophysiology. Strengths of the book include discussion of Hodgkin-Huxley equations, ion channel kinetics equations, entropy equations, pearls of wisdom related to different aquatic species, etc.
Receptor physiology is discussed better in this book than any other with the exception of Handbook of Physiology Receptors Springer by Lowenstein. Cortical neurophysiology is weak here.
If you had to choose between this book and other cellular neurophysiology books, you cannot go wrong with this one. It is a shame that David Aidley died in so that a 5th edition of this outstanding textbook will not be available. So, You're in grad school or a major in Neurobiology and you are looking to see if the book is worth the money??
This book does not give core facts in a easy to regurgitate format. Don't read this a day before your exam. What the book gives you and does better than any other neurobiology book I know about yes,that's a tall claim, but Im comfortable making it is a clear and concise walk through the relevant ideas and experiments that went into building a simple 'taken for granted' concept like say the synaptic vesicles.
This book more than any other made me see the facts I read in tons of other books through the eye of an experimentalist and I had a clear appreciation of the thought that went towards designing an experiment and interpreting the result.
I'm not sure if this would be the best book to read for an introduction to Neurobiology but if you have some background this is a book you would like to come back to again and again. Go to Amazon.
