Overview

IMS: Medical Neuroscience is designed for 1st- and 2nd-year medical students to be an introduction to neuroscience as it relates to clinical medicine. Although the nervous system can be thoroughly described by listing its cellular components and anatomical connections, a clinical appreciation of neuroscience requires a more integrative approach. In IMS: Medical Neuroscience, the clinical relevance of anatomical features are interwoven throughout the text by incorporating discussions of neurological diseases, syndromes, and clinical signs of neural trauma in the context of specific attributes of nervous system organization. By linking the anatomy to its clinical importance, students take a richer understanding of the nervous system with them as they begin their clinical training.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Hassan Ahmed Al-Shatoury, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a new book in the Integrated Medical Science (IMS) series. In it the anatomical, physiological, pharmacological, genetic, and clinical aspects of medical neuroscience are presented in an integrated form.
Purpose: The purpose is to identify and explain different aspects of medical neuroscience that are essential for understanding the neurologic symptoms commonly encountered by physicians. These objectives are worthy especially in the rapidly growing field of neuroscience, and they are well covered in this text.
Audience: This book has been designed as a course supplement and aid for board review for first- and second-year medical students, but the presentation is within reach of other medical professions such as neurobiologists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons. The editors of this text are high rank professionals in behavioral science and neuroscience.
Features: This book is written in 14 chapters starting with cellular and general organization of the nervous system. This is followed by discussion of different functional and anatomical systems. Each chapter begins with a clinical case presentation and is followed by materials necessary to achieve an accurate diagnosis. Questions and answers are provided at the end of each chapter. A short list of recommended readings is also included. There are many useful illustrations and margin notes that concisely highlight the important points.
Assessment: This book is a unique presentation of the medical neuroscience focusing on the integration of its different concepts, with insights provided into the application of basic principles and processes to clinical medicine.
