Overview

Superbly illustrated core textbook for medical and health science students reinforces an understanding of basic neuroanatomical structures by emphasizing their clinical significance in neurologic disease. Abundant illustrations eliminate the need to buy an atlas, as structure and function are reviewed in depth. Plus, over 150 MR images give an excellent introduction to radiographic neuroanatomy and the role it plays in clinical neurology. Two accomplished teachers present just the right amount of material for the busy student.

The book is clearly structured in chapters describing a part of the brain followed by chapters relating the clinical features in cases of functional loss. The purpose is to provide a better understanding of the brain and its functions. The authors attempted to relate anatomy, physiology, and pathology, which means neuroanatomy and neuropathology are covered in one book. This book provides insight into spinal cord and brain anatomy. It was written for medical students and physicians in the neurosciences. In my opinion the authors have reached their goal in getting the student started in understanding neuroanatomy. The book is well illustrated, but there is an apparent lack of color in the illustrations which have only shades of brown. Full color would be more eye catching. The key concepts give a summary of the most important facts and are very helpful. However, there is a repetition of text, especially in Chapter 8. This is worth reading. Especially helpful are the relationships between anatomy and clinical features in cases of functional loss. Readers will also find any structure in the brain in the atlas. I would strongly recommend this book for students who are interested in brain anatomy and for use as a reference in libraries.
