Welcome to Neurochannels, a blog where we will discuss a series of neuroscience books. The idea of starting a blog was suggested, with ambiguous seriousness, by Serapio Baca. The first book will be the third edition of Bertil Hille's classic Ion Channels of Excitable Membranes. In fact, that book was the inspiration for the name of the blog. Expect the first post in early August.
