    1 thought on “Principles of Neural Science

    1. This is a massive volume that provides a detailed sense of "the principles of neural science," the work's title. Basic statistics: the book weighs about nine pounds; it is 1709 pages long; it has 67 chapters; there are six appendices; 79 authors are involved; the book is divided up into 9 parts, each with numerous chapters. To compare, the fourth edition (published in 2000) had about 1400 pages. This volume is not meant for a general audience, but it is a wonderful resource for those who can wor [...]

    2. This text represents a bloated hodgepodge of factoids and neo-phrenology. The problem is that molecular detail is rich, and higher level explanations are vapid. There is little substantive middle ground tying the two together. Concepts and tools to bridge that gap do exist. They include network theory (just how do neurons compute logic, and how does network structure constrain flows to lead to appropriate "information processing"?), complexity concepts such as emergence and agent based modeling [...]

    3. I'm reviewing this simply because it was my bible for three years of my life. I ate, slept and drank with a library copy of Kandel by my side (that I just kept renewing online every month for the whole three years).

    4. A fundamental chunk of any neuroscientist's educational career will be spent with one's nose in this book. I have heard people using this book for Ph. D. preparations, and am using it myself as an undergraduate student. What is most brilliant about Kandel's work is his ability to write for a range of audiences. Principles of Neural Science is not difficult to read. Any student with a few elementary sciences courses behind them will be able to understand all of what is put forth in this great wor [...]

    5. If you study Neuroscience this is the key text, every other text will go to support and complement what you try to read here. Not an easy read, extremely dense, not really in the format of a standard university textbook but at the same time this is the textbook that defines the field.

    6. I remember reading for fun thoooose were the days.I stole my copy. Well within my rights under the educational instructional purposes defined as fair use by congress. I stole it and it's mine.

    7. The Kandell, Schwartz and Jessel text on neuroscience is by far the most complete account of scientific theory on the brain and its mechanical and biochemical structures. Unfortunately, the fourth edition was published in 2000, and a great many advances have been made since then. Many of the structures and theories proposed are now out of date, and several things that are listed as unknown or untested have been better resolved. The upcoming publication of a fifth edition is very highly anticipat [...]

    8. This book is a page turner, really. It has everything you want to know about the brain except anatomy and electrophysiology. Those two are covered well be The Human Brain Coloring Book (really, it is my desk reference!)and by Ionic Channels of Excitable Membranes, by Hille (NOT a page-turner by any means, but it has everything you'd want to know on the subject).

    9. Mother of all popular neuro books, in my honest opinion. Plenty of details at the molecular level. Serves to be a good reference book for people in psychology, neuroscience and other allied fields. Prior knowledge of physics helps tremendously. Perfect? No. But definitely possesses a vast store of extremely detailed information. A great investment.

    10. After its release was pushed back many times, the 5th edition finally came out within the past year, and I have been reading it on my laptop’s Kindle app throughout my first year of core PhD courses and in preparing for my qualifying exam. I had read some of the 4th edition during undergrad, as well.In general my feelings towards the book are warm, and I do expect that if you read the textbook, dear reader of this review, you will learn a lot from it.Positives1) Does a good job of not trying t [...]

    11. Enormemente migliore del Bear.Comunque, in entrambi i casi, non limitarsi a studiarli ma affiancare altro studio autonomo con letteratura e altri manuali.Presenti informazioni errate/inesatte, come il presunto rapporto Neuroni/Glia 1:50.E poi, figa, è pur sempre vecchio.

    12. Look, it's probably generally seen as the best neuroscience textbook only because it is the largest and densest neuroscience information resource.When one eventually gets to the point of using a neuroscientific 'fact' in empirical research or theory they need to know how it was found, and this can only be done in sufficient detail by reading the original paper, textbooks will not suffice for the practioner. And with that assumption, the cramming of information in this book comes with the loss of [...]

    13. This, a well-overdue update to Kandel's standard neuroscience text is thorough, extensive, precise, complete, comprehensive, elucidating, and (believe it or not) amazingly clear. If you are curious about, or have been tasked with, understanding the most complex entity in the known universe-- the human nervous system-- then I would recommend you check this book out. Just make sure you have at least a week of nothing else to do but read it. It took me eight straight days.

    14. As an outsider to the discipline, I found it informative and approachable. I spent a few years reading up on neural science after reading Francis Crick's Astonishing Hypothesis and Patricia Churchland's Neurophilosophy. I found this a reliable reference on many issues.

    15. Actually read it a month ago for a uni exam.What to say about it? Very well written but simply suicidal to read and soul-shattering to STUDY.But since I've passed my exam I don't see why I don't have to include it in the books I've read in 2013.'Cause I damn did.

    16. This is the first graduate biology textbook I picked up and I was blown away. Beautiful illustrations, clear writing, and well, neural science is just pretty darn cool. There's a new edition coming out and I'll be eager to see what has been discovered since the previous edition.

    17. This book doesn't skim on the technical detail or rigor, but is still accessible to the highly motivated layperson. The chapters actually written by Kandel are probably the best.

    18. A wonderful introduction to many of the subfields of neuroscience. Find the 5th edition, it's much more recent than the 4th and a lot has changed in neuroscience in the last 12 years.

    19. In 1985 I studied neuroscience in my first year of medical school, and since I have relied on each edition as the definitive state of neural science, and the advances have been exponential.
