Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Daniel B. Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is an introduction to neuroanatomy that strongly emphasizes clinical neurological correlations to neuroanatomical principles.
Purpose: This text was created for medical students taking introduction to neuroanatomy in their first or second years of medical school. Neurology, Psychiatry, and Neurosurgery residents will find it a valuable review text.
Audience: The primary audience is first- and second-year medical students taking neuroanatomy.
Features: This is a 400-page, single-author text that covers the basic topics of neuroanatomy including development, central nervous system structures, peripheral nervous system, sensory systems, and motor systems. This book is beautifully illustrated with many very useful diagrams and figures that illustrate complex neuroanatomical ideas.
Assessment: This book differentiates itself from competing texts in several ways. Although concisely written, the level of detail is significantly higher than found in most competing books. Secondly, the quality and quantity of illustrations is higher than in competing books. The pedagogic value of these illustrations is very high. Finally, the emphasis on anatomic-neurologic correlations is admirable and more extensive than in many similar books. This is a highly valuable text that both students, neurology residents, and even practicing neurologists will find highly useful and instructive.
