Summary: "Mention leeches and most of us cringe with thoughts of slimy black bloodsuckers . . . but the leech and other invertebrates have an impressive record leading to our current understanding of how cellular elements of the brain function and interact. . .

His book will not only serve as a reference for other leech scientists, but should also appeal broadly to biologists and naturalists." --American Scientist 1. Introduction 2.
