Recent improvements in techniques of recording from single neurones have revealed that many do not usually fire impulses. This book reviews all known examples and considers how neurones can function without impulses. The results summarised are of central importance to our understanding of how nervous systems function at the cellular level.

Preface
Introduction: the nerve impulse and the nature of nervous function
Integration by spikeless neurones in retina
Anatomy and physiology of identified non-spiking cells in the photoreceptor-lamina complex of the compound eye of insects, especially

Non-impulsive stretch receptors in crustaceans
Non-spiking interactions in crustacean rhythmic motor systems
Local interneurones in insects
Functional aspects of neuronal geometry
Synaptic and impulse loci in olfactory bulb dendritic circuits
Spikeless neurones: where do we go from here?
