Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Tina L. Thompson, PhD (Mercer University School of Medicine)
Description: This is the ninth edition of a concise, informative overview of clinically relevant neuroanatomy.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a concise introduction to neuroanatomy for medical and allied health students. Neuroanatomy is one of the most difficult subjects for health professions students to master. A book that can significantly assist students in mastering neuroanatomy is always welcome. This is an extremely useful book for the novice and appropriate as a review book for the more knowledgeable student or fellow.
Audience: It is intended for medical students, allied health students, and upper level undergraduates. It will meet the needs of novices and knowledgeable students. For the first group, it will be a means to learn the material, for the second group, it provides a useful review. Dr. Kiernan's authorship represents a wonderful legacy for the University of Western Ontario, since Dr. Barr spent most of his outstanding academic career there.
Features: The book presents functional neuroanatomy. Using well done drawings, figures, and anatomic specimens, it leads readers from neurodevelopment to cortical function. The book excels at the use of line diagrams to illustrate neurologic pathways and interactions between nuclear groups. It offers online resources to supplement the figures in the book, which will be useful for both students and instructors. Students will find them particularly helpful in self-study and self-assessment. It also includes an excellent glossary, a necessary feature for any book which is geared to introductory students. The book does an excellent job presenting the material. A brief chapter on neurophysiology would make the text complete.
Assessment: This is an excellent book for students — it is both readable and well illustrated. While previous editions were good, the inclusion of multicolor figures and web resources makes this edition superior.
