An integrated textbook of medical neuroscience, this book coherently presents the anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry of the human nervous system. The neuroanatomy is presented in a way that is integrated with a modern presentation of cellular neurophysiological systems, neuroscience, and cellular, molecular, and developmental neuroscience. Clinical correlations are provided wherever appropriate.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some two-color illustrations.
