    It is now about 10 years since the first edition of Nerve Cells and Nervous Systems was published. There have been many important advances across the whole field of neuro science since and it was obvious that the first edition had become much less useful than when it was published.4/5(1). Introduction Figure – Robotic Arms Playing Foosball: As the neural circuitry of the nervous system has become more fully understood and robotics more sophisticated, it is now possible to integrate technology with the body and restore abilities following traumatic events. At some point in the future, will this type of technology lead to the ability to augment our nervous systems?

: Introduction to nervous systems (A Series of books in biology) (): Bullock, Theodore Holmes: BooksFormat: Hardcover. Nervous tissue, present in both the CNS and PNS, contains two basic types of cells: neurons and glial cells.

A glial cell is one of a variety of cells that provide a framework of tissue that supports the neurons and their activities. The neuron is the more functionally important of the two, in terms of the communicative function of the nervous system.

Introduction to the Nervous System. In truth, the functions of both the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems are not so straightforward, but this division is a useful rule of thumb. The enteric nervous system (ENS) controls the gastrointestinal system and is sometimes considered part of the autonomic nervous system.

Introduction to the Nervous System he world is mostly unknown. This statement immediately emphasizes the point that we are not conscious of most of the environmental events that occur around us. The world consists of stimuli of which we may or may tures or systems having important roles in your life—for example, digestiveFile Size: KB.

An Introduction to Nervous Systems takes an evolutionary approach to neurobiology: it starts with simpler organisms and progresses to more complex ones, and it explores the phylogenetics of neural features. It also takes a systems approach, built around case studies which link neural anatomy and physiology to organism behaviour and broader evolutionary history, with some philosophical ruminations.

There have been many important advances across the whole field of neuro­ science since and it was obvious that the first edition had become much less useful than when it was published. Hence this. If Rudyard Kipling had been a neuroscientist, less whimsical, and interested in teaching neurobiology to undergraduates, he might have written a book similar to Ralph Greenspan’s “An Introduction to Nervous Systems” (Greenspan, ).This new book reminded me of the “Just So Stories” (Kipling, ) I read as a pan hooks the reader with interesting animal behavior Author: Bruce R.

Greenspan presents the mechanisms that allow behavior to become ever more sophisticated from simple avoidance 5/5(3). This short book will not stand alone as the main text for a majors' introductory neuroscience course, but it could be a supplemental text.

In this role, Greenspan's book should broaden students' perspectives on nervous system structure and function. It should excite them to consider that all nervous systems evolved to solve similar : $ The nervous system is a very complex organ system.

In Peter D. Kramer’s book Listening to Prozac, a pharmaceutical researcher is quoted as saying, “If the human brain were simple enough for us to understand, we would be too simple to understand it” ().That quote is from the early s; in the two decades since, progress has continued at an amazing rate within the scientific.
