With its acclaimed author team, cutting-edge content, emphasis on medical relevance, and coverage based on key experiments, Molecular Cell Biology has justly earned an impeccable reputation as an exciting and authoritative text. Avoiding an encyclopedic approach, the book grounds its coverage in the experiments that define our understanding of cell biology, engaging students with the exciting breakthroughs that define the field's history and point to its future. The authors, all world-class researchers and teachers, incorporate medically relevant examples where appropriate to help illustrate the connections between cell biology and health and human disease. New Co-Author, Kelsey Martin, UCLA Dr. Martin teaches basic neurobiology to undergraduate, graduate, dental, and medical students. Her laboratory uses Aplysia and mouse models to understand the cell and molecular biology of long-term memory formation. Her group has made important contributions to elucidating the molecular and cell biological mechanisms by which experience changes connections between neurons in the brain to store long-term memories?a process known as synaptic plasticity.
