Sensorimotor Integration

The third of a planned group of volumes dealing with reptilian nervous systems, Sensorimotor Integration focuses chiefly on visual and sensorimotor aspects of reptilian neurobiology. Chapters examine data for numerous species, drawing together the most current work and thinking on each topic and emphasizing results from recent studies.

"This volume would be a valuable addition to any comparative anatomist’s bookshelf, and one that should be of great interest to comparative neurobiologists and neuroanatomists alike."—Katherine V. Fite, Quarterly Review of Biology
