Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Mukesh Misra, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is the second edition of a neuroanatomy text and atlas aimed at helping students understand the anatomical basis of clinical neurology. The material is presented in such a way that a relatively difficult subject is made easy to understand. This book also has a selection of drawings of key brain structures that are based on computer reconstructions of thinly sliced gross material.
Purpose: The purpose is to help students in medical and allied health sciences to learn the anatomy of the most complex structures in the brain in an easier way. It also is meant to assist readers to achieve a higher retention of neuroanatomical information through its use of three-dimensional illustrations of structures correlated with their location on two-dimensional sections.
Audience: The book has been targeted mainly for students in medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, and other allied health sciences. The book also is helpful for demonstrators in the neuroanatomy laboratory and for teachers in neuroanatomy who are preparing teaching sessions.
Features: The most important feature is the presentation of the material in a simple, concise, and easy-to-understand manner. It has a value as a self-study guide and resource for information on the structure and function of the human central nervous system.
Assessment: The book is an important contribution to the field of neuroanatomy and a simple learning tool for this subject. This book could serve as both text and atlas for an introductory laboratory courses in human neuroanatomy. It is intended to be used in conjunction with a parallel series of weekly laboratory exercises.
