Evolution and Adaptation

moment Edition

Ann B. Butler and William Hodos

the second one version of this landmark textual content provides a large survey of comparative vertebrate neuroanatomy on the introductory point, representing a distinct contribution to the sphere of evolutionary neurobiology. it's been largely revised and up-to-date, with considerably enhanced figures and diagrams which are used generously during the textual content. via research of the adaptation in mind constitution and serve as among significant teams of vertebrates, readers can achieve perception into the evolutionary background of the anxious procedure. The textual content is split into 3 sections:
* creation to evolution and version, together with a survey of mobilephone constitution, embryological improvement, and anatomical association of the valuable frightened approach; phylogeny and variety of mind constructions; and an summary of varied theories of mind evolution
* Systematic, finished survey of comparative neuroanatomy throughout all significant teams of vertebrates
* evaluation of vertebrate mind evolution, which integrates the total textual content, highlights range and customary issues, broadens viewpoint via a comparability with mind constitution and evolution of invertebrate brains, and considers contemporary facts and theories of the evolutionary beginning of the mind within the earliest vertebrates, together with a lately proposed version of the beginning of the mind within the earliest vertebrates that has bought powerful help from newly stumbled on fossil evidence

abundant fabric drawn from the newest examine has been built-in into the textual content and highlighted in targeted function containers, together with contemporary perspectives on homology, cranial nerve association and evolution, the really huge and complicated brains of birds in correlation with their complicated cognitive skills, and the present debate on forebrain evolution throughout reptiles, birds, and mammals.
