This book presents a thorough scholarly review of gastropod neurobiology presenting what is known about identified nerve cells, neural circuits, and behavior. Aplysia has been a major early model for work on basic mechanisms of learning and memory, and this model system will be covered in depth as the major focus of the book. There are about six other molluscan models, including Helix, Lymnaea, Limax, Achatina, and Tritonia, and Bulla, in which significant neurobiological research has been done, and they are all covered in appropriate depth. Chase brings a rather rich knowledge of the integrative biology of these systems to this book which should help many neurobiologists to reach a fuller organismal perspective on the behaviors they investigate.
