Overview

Blumenfeld (Yale U. School of Medicine) presents this innovative textbook on neuroanatomy. Traditional textbooks/courses focus most attention on memorization of anatomical details, with only limited searching for applications of this knowledge as time allows. Here, the author utilizes over 100 actual clinical cases as a teaching instrument, allowing students to appreciate the clinical importance of structural details as they are being learned, and motivating students to further study of normal anatomy and function. Intended mainly for first- or second-year medical students in neuroanatomy, neurobiology, or neuroscience courses. Also suitable as a reference text for advanced medical students and residents, and students in other health professions. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
