Welcome to Principles of Neuroscience. This online open access textbook provides an introduction to how the brain and other parts of the nervous system are organized and how they function. The topics in this e-textbook are sequenced in an order to give the reader an understanding of the basic fundamentals of the structure and function of the nervous system that can then be applied to later topics in the book. We have also linked topics in this textbook to other online resources and references. These links will take you to websites with information contributed by experts in the field of basic and clinical neuroscience for additional information that is beyond the scope of this introductory textbook. We hope that this e-textbook will give you the foundation needed to understand how the brain works, and entice you to join in its continuing exploration.
