Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: This book is part of a series designed to address the new trend in medical teaching, which involves a much closer correlation between basic sciences and clinical medicine.
Purpose: The main purpose is to reflect the new modality of teaching, addressing basic neuroanatomy and clinical cases. These are worthy objectives, since U.S. board examinations are constantly modifying their testing standards.
Audience: Medical and graduate students are the main audience. All of the authors have been teaching in the field for many years.
Features: In its 17 chapters, the book covers the most important aspects of neuroanatomy and physiology. Despite the fact that the topic is so common in neurosciences books, this book includes some unique features, including a case study at the end of each chapter. In a study guide, case studies always trigger different thought processes and make recall much easier. Each of the cases is discussed in an appropriate manner at the end of the book. The illustrations are standard and appropriate.
Assessment: This is a good, affordable book for students to use as a study guide in preparation for their USMLE examinations.
