Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel B. Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is the 10th edition of Manter and Gatz's classic introduction to neuroanatomy revised by Sid Gilman and Sarah Winans Newman.
Purpose: It is meant as an introduction to neuroanatomy.
Audience: This book will be read primarily by house officers in neurology, psychiatry and neurosurgery. However, students in speech pathology, physical therapy, and occupational therapy will find this book useful and accessible. In addition, clinicians in neurology, psychiatry, neurosurgery, and radiology will find this book a useful review and a handy quick reference for neuroanatomical questions.
Features: Topics covered in this slim but highly readable book include neurophysiology of the axon and synapse. The heart of the book is the group of successive chapters on the sensory system, the motor system, the cerebellum, the limbic system, the thalamus and cortex, visual system, auditory system, and vestibular system. Each chapter is a model of clarity and supported by superb line diagrams that illustrate the important neuroanatomical concepts. Additional chapters cover the CSF, blood supply to the brain, neurodiagnostic testing, and the neurological examination. A short but excellent chapter covers chemical neuroanatomy in the brain.
Assessment: This book is a true gem. It continues a tradition of clearly and concisely summarizing the neuroanatomy needed by clinicians in neurology and psychiatry. The emphasis is on a "systems" approach which will especially appeal to neurologists who have to diagnose system dysfunction. The book continues to improve and is highly recommended. The only caveat is that the brief case studies do not add significant value to this already excellent book.
Daniel B. Hier
This is the ninth edition of Manter and Gatz's classic introduction to neuroanatomy and neurophysiology. The book aims to review all the essentials of neuroanatomy relevant to clinical neurology. The book is aimed at medical students in both their clinical and preclinical years as well as neurology, psychiatry, and rehabilitation medical house officers. The book reviews the nervous system topographically and includes additional chapters on blood supply, chemical neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and approach to the patient. This superb update of a classic text will be widely used by medical students and house officers.
From The Critics
Provides current information (last updated in 1996) on neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neuropharmacology for both practitioners and students. Case studies and follow-ups, as well as numerous MRIs clarify the material covered in the text. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
