The cerebellum plays a vital role in the control of posture, locomotion, eye movement, and a variety of motor functions. Currently, many scientists are involved in trying to unravel the molecular biology, physiology, and genetics of cerebellar development. This book provides an outstanding explanation of what happens during normal cerebellar development and following experimental interference with the normal course of development. Altman and Bayer, two of the world's leading authorities on developmental neurobiology, have studied cerebellar development using light microscopic, electron microscopic, and autoradiographic techniques. Here they share their findings with you. Their latest discoveries are presented, along with the wealth of data discovered by others. The result is an excellent new reference offering a novel interpretation of how the cerebellum develops as well as a model for studying the development of other brain systems.Reseña del editor:
This book is an outstanding presentation of what happens during normal cerebellar development.
