A Doody's Core Title

Superbly illustrated, this core textbook reinforces an understanding of basic neuroanatomical structures by emphasizing their clinical significance in neurologic disease. Featuring a seamless integration of over 400 illustrations within the text, Functional Neuroanatomy includes cross-sectional atlas views of the brain and brain stem, MRI images in three planes, and key concepts identified within each chapter.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: Neuroanatomy has seen continuous change over the past few decades, in particular with the advantage of newer neurochemical, molecular, and radiological techniques. This edition has been extensively updated in its context, pictures, and references.
Purpose: The purpose is to address neuroanatomy in an easy and accessible manner. These worthy objectives are fully met by the authors.
Audience: Neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neuroanatomists are the main targets of this book. The authors are credible authorities in the field.
Features: This book's concept is interesting in the presentation of neuroanatomy. Besides the clear language, the pictures are representative, the references up-to-date, and the addition of important features in each chapter help the reader, typically a student, to better grasp the concepts. I don't think there are any shortcomings. It's definitely simplified yet comprehensive. Blood supply is always mentioned, since many neurological conditions present differently and puzzle clinicians. It is very affordable, which puts this book at an advantage over others for medical students and residents.
Assessment: This is a great book with newly added necessary features and an attractive price. It is a good book to include in neuroscience libraries and general medical libraries.
