Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A very useful Atlas for students in medicine and neuroscience as well as for trainees in neurology, anatomy, neurosurgery and allied neurosciences. Each illustration (most in color) is accompanied by an explanatory text. The book has a glossary, index and a CD-ROM.
— In Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews (PER), Vol. 4, No. 3, March 2007

…an excellent tool for introducing the basic concepts of neuroanatomy to medical students. Physicians in training could also use it as an easily manageable method for refreshing basic concepts. The CD-ROM greatly enhances the utility and value of this book and makes it well worth the suggested list price.
—Estrada J. Bernard Jr., M.D., Journal of Neurosurgery, Vol. 105, September 2006
