Series: Horizons in Neuroscience Research
BISAC: SCI089000

This compilation presents original study results on the leading edge of neuroscience research. Each article has been carefully selected in an attempt to present substantial research results across a broad spectrum. Included in this volume are amygdala-induced modulation of cognitive brain structures; plasticity and pathology of dentritic intrinsic excitability; the neurotoxic effects of heavy metals; fundamental mechanisms of glutamate neurotoxity; dendritic morphology and connectivity in the medial amygdala; a review of the cognitive functions of those who suffer from diabetes mellitus; and the posterdorsal medial amygdala, emotion and the sexually dimorphic social behavior network.
