Edited by W. Maxwell Cowan, Thomas C. Südhof, and Charles F. Stevens, this volume provides a comprehensive and authoritative overview of a century of research on synaptic structure and function culminating in the most recent work. Written by leading experts in the field, Synapses will be of interest to a broad range of neuroscientists, including those studying the cellular and molecular mechanisms of synaptic transmission, learning and memory, neuronal plasticity, neurotransmitters, and synaptic morphology. It will also be an essential reference for students and biomedical professionals in all areas of neuroscience.

W. Maxwell Cowan (1932-2002) was an internationally renowned neurobiologist and the chief scientific officer at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Thomas C. Südhof is an HHMI investigator and professor of molecular genetics at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. Charles F. Stevens is an HHMI investigator at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies and adjunct professor of Pharmacology and of Neuroscience at the University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine.Review:
Comprehensive in its coverage. The quality of the writing and of the numerous beautiful color figures is excellent... Cowan and Eric Kandel offer an engaging history of the study of synaptic transmission from the first hints of its existence in 1791 through the 1970s... For both seasoned neurobiologists and interested newcomers to the field, this book is a worthwhile introduction to the wonders of synapses and the many opportunities for future study that they offer.(Mary B. Kennedy Science)
Drawing on the expertise of recognized leaders in the field, the editors have compiled 15 chapters that skillfully relay the rich history and complexity of synapses. A fascinating introduction by Max Cowan and Eric Kandel chronicles the historical underpinnings of the synapse and sets the scholarly tone for the rest of the book. Synapses is an impressive book that will be a useful reference to neuroscientists at all levels.(Michael D. Ehlers and Guoping Feng Nature)
An important book. It covers an astounding array of interesting topics and begins with a wonderful historical review by Max Cowan and Eric Kandel.(John P. Horn American Scientist)
Perhaps the most unique feature of Synapses is that most chapters were written jointly by authors originating from different laboratories and representing diverse points of view. It is 'must reading' for all who love synapses.(George J. Augustine Nature Neuroscience)
This superb volume summarizes in lucid and authoritative detail our current understanding of the synapse, a term coined by Sherrington approximately 100 years ago. A definitive summary of one century's work and a challenging roadmap for the next.(Zach W. Hall, University of California, San Francisco)
For anyone interested in obtaining a more sophisticated view of the workings of the basic cellular unit of brain function, this book will serve as an indispensable companion.(Thomas Jessell, Columbia University)
