Mechanisms of synaptic plasticity: LTP, glutamate receptors and cell adhesion molecules, oh my....
Fascinating book about neurobiologist Gary Lynch at UC Irvine, the way the brain records memory, and quite a bit about how academic science and publishing works. As a bonus: brain drugs and possible cures for diseases including ADHD and alzheimer's. WAIT THAT'S NOT ALL, if you order right now.... mapping of the brain and an overview of the startup biotech craze of the '90s.
For as much technical neurobiology as is in this book (and not being a neurobiologist) the story was very engrossing.
