I am a graduate student in psychobiology at the University of Florida, and
Kandel, E.R., Schwartz, J.H., & Jessel, T.M. (1991). Principles of Neural
Science (Third Edition). Appleton&Lange, Norwalk, Conn.
Topics include Cell & Molecular Biology of the Neuron (incl. membrane
potential), Synaptic transmission, Sensory systems, Motor systems,
Brain stem systems, Limbic system & hypothalamus, Language, thought &
affect, & Development. Some of the chapters are a bit dry, but most
Even better for molecular neurobiology (but with no emphasis on systems):
Hall, Z.W. (1992). An introduction to Molecular Biology. Sinauer,
Topics: Signalling, Cell Bio of neurons & glia, Development, Plasticity
& diseases of neurons.
Very well written.
