About the Author

Liqun Luo earned his bachelor's degree from University of Science & Technology of China and PhD from Brandeis University. Since 1997, Dr. Luo has taught neurobiology to undergraduate and graduate students at Stanford University, where he also directs a lab studying the assembly and function of neural circuits. Dr. Luo is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.


Prof Liqun Luo is the recipient of the 2020 Award for Education in Neuroscience granted by the Society for Neuroscience in recognition of his continuing commitment to both cutting-edge research and neuroscience education. The first edition of his textbook has been adopted by over 150 courses taught by major universities all of the world.

"This textbook from Dr. Liqun Luo is fantastic for advanced undergraduate courses on neurobiology. The emphasis on experiment-led explanations of neurobiology is critical for students transiting from textbook learning to thinking like modern scientist." - Marla B. Feller, Paul Licht Distinguished Professor in Biological Sciences, Division of Neurobiology, Department of Molecular and Cell Biology & Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute, University of California, Berkeley

"Principles of Neurobiology is a stellar achievement of scholarship - a synthesis of the most interesting and important discoveries in neuroscience, written by a leader in our field who has based his text on a careful reading of thousands of primary research papers. Remarkably, this book does not just describe each 'discovery': it also describes the path to discovery, noting the specific technologies and experimental designs that enabled each key result." - Rachel Wilson, Martin Family Professor of Basic Research in the Field of Neurobiology, Harvard Medical School and Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute

"... what an extraordinary achievement this is - I don't think there are many out there any longer who can cover the entire field of neuroscience in such a scholarly manner, singlehandedly! The integration that results from this is likely unique to this book." - Edvard Moser, Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, Founding Director of the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience, Norwegian University of Science and Technology
