Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Joseph I Sirven, MD (Mayo Clinic Arizona)
Description: This eighth edition of a well-known neuroanatomy atlas does not disappoint, providing a rich visual context to the discipline of neuroanatomy. This edition has numerous updates from previous versions including modifications, improvements, and label corrections that make this book a must have.
Purpose: The objectives are fourfold: 1) to continue to provide a sound anatomical basis for correlating structure and function; 2) to introduce new information in the form of new imaging modalities such as MR or CT; 3) to emphasize contemporary clinical and basic science terminology; and 4) to expand the treatment of neuroscience as practiced clinically.
Audience: It is intended for all students who need a fundamental knowledge of neuroanatomy. This may include medical students and neurology, psychiatry, and neurosurgery residents. Students from other disciplines could easily use this book, particularly those in neuroscience nursing, neuropharmacology, and PhD students.
Features: The book is divided into 10 chapters that provide in rich detail the neuroanatomy of the major nervous system sections. Particularly useful are the anatomical clinical correlations chapter with MRA, MRV, and cerebral angiogram. The self-assessment section in chapter 10 is a terrific practice test for neuroanatomy.
Assessment: This atlas should be in every medical school, hospital and university library. This fundamental bookis essential for all students and practitioners involved in neurology, neurosurgery, and the clinical neurosciences. Moreover, the interactive atlas provided online with the purchase of the book makes it an extraordinary value.
