Behavioral techniques used in animals to model human diseases and predict effects of novel drugs are as varied as the numbers of scientists who use them. Consequently, behavioral analysis is becoming an indispensable tool for the neuroscientist.
- The British Neuroscience Association
The British Neuroscience Association commissioned the booklet for the purposes of teaching young people about the brain and neuroscience. The booklet contains short explanatory chapters on different subjects written by experts in each topic.
