Neurons in Action 2: Tutorials and Simulations using NEURON
In this carefully designed book, John Moore and Ann Stuart demystify the basics of nerve function through a series of logical and well-written text-based tutorials with accompanying computer simulations… The computer-based format is ideal for professors and teaching assistants to use in the classroom. The inclusion of classic experimental papers on the CD also makes the experience somewhat of a history lesson as well… The entire simulation environment is contained on the CD, can be easily installed locally on a PC or Mac, and runs quickly using Mozilla Firefox… Overall, Moore and Stuart certainly have created a highly recommendable method for learning and teaching neurophysiology. Readers can now, from the comfort of their own homes, finally vanquish those former physiology demons in a fun and interactive manner—and learn a bit of history, too.

“This program is a wonderful tool to bring to life concepts that are difficult to describe verbally. The tutorials can be used in beginner and advanced classes as the student's understanding develops.”
—Lora Becker, University of Evansville
“This simulation-based learning tool is extremely well planned and implemented. The guided tutorials are uniformly excellent with a range of questions, progressively more thought provoking, that lead to discovery.”
—John Rinzel, New York University
