A Central figure in the development of neuroscience as an integrated, unitaly field, "Ted" Bullock gathers the most infl half-century career in this collection of papers, some of which opened up new areas and new approaches to research on the brain. With this selection of 51 key papers-many of them new or updated-and new introductory essays, Bullock brings togettiei, neurophysiology, zoology, comparative neurology, ethology, and their offshoots, and provides a rationale and perspective for ultimately answering the question he poses to science and himself.. How do brains work?. The broad topical coverage includes: Integration in neurons and higher brain levels; Sensory reception as insight into brain systems; Brain waves and evoked potentials; Neural aspects of zoological evolution; and Neuroethology and the evolution of complexity. Each paper thoughtfully (and emphatically!) underlines an implicit message - our real understanding of how brains work is very limited, and a pnrne goal of neuroscience research should be finding new phenomena and relationships instead of merely allempting global theories, simplistic models, and reductionist analysis. Professional neuroscientists and advanced undergraduate and graduate students as well as zoologists, physiologists, and ethologists will find Bullock's perspective on their fields invaluable not only for the wealth of information he firings together in this one volume, but for the practical guidance he provides on new directions in which neuroscience research might profitably move.
