More About This Textbook


Medical Neuroscience, a title in Hayes Barton Press's Integrated Medical Sciences series, provides basic knowledge about the nervous system to students in the health sciences. The authors' goal in the second edition is to bridge the basic science curriculum with clinical practice. To this end, two new chapters have been added that expand the coverage of clinical topics in neuroscience—Life Span Development of the Brain and Neural Basis of Anxiety and Depression. All of the chapters include new clinical topics and have been updated. The reference sections have been expanded and include research articles that support the scientific foundation for each chapter, landmark research articles that give historical perspective, and Internet resources that contain valuable information for students, patients, and practitioners

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Angela L Prush, AS, AAS, RRT (William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: This easy to read book presents basic information about the anatomy and fundamental physiologic principles of the nervous system and incorporates clinically relevant information and concepts while covering a multitude of diseases and disorders. This updated edition includes two new chapters not included in the first edition published in 1998.
Purpose: The purpose is to present basic knowledge about the nervous system to students in the health sciences in order to provide a bridge between the basic science curriculum and clinical practice. This book is valuable to those needing an in-depth knowledge of the nervous system.
Audience: The book is intended for students in the health sciences. The text flows smoothly, is easy to read, and is perfect for a healthcare student.
Features: All of the nervous system is covered, beginning with cellular neuroscience and concluding with two valuable chapters that discuss life span development of the brain and the neural basis of anxiety and depression. Each chapter opens with a relevant clinical case that includes a brief history and physical examination of a patient and concludes with the resolution of the clinical case, review questions, additional reading and articles, and Internet resources. The artwork is in basic black and white, but easy to understand. The book concludes with answers to each chapter's review questions and an index.
Assessment: This is a well thought out, easy to read book. It will be useful to students in the health sciences and practitioners needing a review of the nervous system. The added chapters are valuable and justify this second edition.
