Overview

This is a superbly illustrated, clearly written student textbook for c ourses on medical neuroscience, neuroanatomy and basic neurology, and neurobiology, uniquely covering the peripheral and nervous systems in the context of neurological disorders and conditions while emphasizing clinical disorders and enhanced visualization of the nervous system w ith minimum rote memorization. Of the book's nearly 500 illustrations, 231 are in color and 165 are MRI and CT scans, angiograms, and scanne d photographs. The book bridges the gap between the central and periph eral nervous systems with extensive coverage of the spinal nerves, ple xuses, and associated injuries and disorders.

I am very impressed with the quality of presentation and organization, and with the original illustrations and images contained in this book. It is not often that I see such a well thought out and strong product in the field of neuroscience. The neuronanatomical facts are accurate, comprehensive and well described. It follows a unique approach to neuroanatomy that stand apart from the existing textbooks in the same field. Dr. Arslan¿s textbook contains voluminous clinical correlations, illustrations and radiographic images that would undoubtedly provide the readers the ability to visualize the human brain in a clear three dimensions approach. It certainly addresses the gap between the peripheral and central nervous systems in a highly organized, understandable, methodical and lucid manner. This is a superb book that will meet a real need in medical education. I encourage all students in medical, osteopathic and allied health programs to take advantage of this valuable resource in neuroanatomy, anatomy and neurology.

I have reviewed 'Neuroanatomical Basis of Clinical Neurology' by Orhan Arslan for its scope, intended audience, and utility. Dr. Arslan has produced a textbook that encompasses conventional neuroanatomy, integrated with neurobiology at the molecular and systems level with pertinent clinical correlations. It contains illustrations and radiographic images that would undoubtedly provide the readers the ability to visualize the human brain in a clear three dimensions approach. It addresses the gap between the peripheral and central nervous systems in a highly organized, understandable, methodical and lucid manner. As an individual, who had been involved in neuroscience research and teaching for over 20 years at the medical schools of the Northwestern and Indiana universities, I have had opportunities to review books in the area and I believe that the Neuroanatomical basis of Clinical neurology is possibly the most comprehensive neuroanatomy text compiled in the recent years. The book is very clear and logical in its presentation and will serve as an invaluable text for medical students in their freshmen, junior and senior years. I am sure that it will be helpful to those appearing for the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE). Zafar Iqbal, Ph.D.
