The genetic, molecular, and cellular mechanisms of neural development are essential for understanding evolution and disorders of neural systems. Recent advances in genetic, molecular, and cell biological methods have generated a massive increase in new information, but there is a paucity of comprehensive and up-to-date syntheses, references, and historical perspectives on this important subject. The Comprehensive Developmental Neuroscience series is designed to fill this gap, offering the most thorough coverage of this field on the market today and addressing all aspects of how the nervous system and its components develop. Particular attention is paid to the effects of abnormal development and on new psychiatric/neurological treatments being developed based on our increased understanding of developmental mechanisms. Each volume in the series consists of review style articles that average 15-20pp and feature numerous illustrations and full references. Volume 2 offers 56 high level articles devoted mainly to Formation of Axons and Dendrites, Migration, Synaptogenesis, Developmental Sequences in the Maturation of Intrinsic and Synapse Driven Patterns.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This...second of a three volume series...is intended to summarize the current state of developmental neuroscience. There are four sections with Rubenstein and Rakic as chief editors and each section having a section editor in charge of peer reviewing the articles therein. Section I is an overview of neuron development...The second section is on neuron migration during brain development...Section III is on synaptogenesis...The fourth section demonstrates the ways that the ongoing synaptic activity of the brain and not simply genetics mediates brain development."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013
