Continuing progress has been made in understanding the brain at the molecular, anatomic, and physiological levels in the years following the "Decade of the Brain," with the results providing insight into the underlying basis of many neurological disease processes. In Neuroscience in Medicine, Third Edition, a distinguished panel of basic and clinical investigators, noted for their teaching excellence, provide thoroughly updated and revised chapters to reflect these remarkable advances. Designed specifically for medical students and allied health professionals, this up-to-date edition alternates scientific and clinical chapters that explain the basic science underlying neurological processes and then relate that science to the understanding of neurological disorders and their treatment. These popular and now expanded "clinical correlations" cover, in detail, disorders of the spinal cord, neuronal migration, the autonomic nervous system, the limbic system, ocular motility, and the basal ganglia, as well as demyelinating disorders, stroke, dementia and abnormalities of cognition, congenital chromosomal and genetic abnormalities, Parkinson's disease, nerve trauma, peripheral neuropathy, aphasias, sleep disorders and myasthenia gravis. In addition to concise summaries of the most recent biochemical, physiological, anatomical, and behavioral advances, the chapters summarize current findings on neuronal gene expression and protein synthesis at the molecular level.

Authoritative and comprehensive, Neuroscience in Medicine, Third Edition provides a fully up-to-date and readily accessible guide to brain functions at the cellular and molecular level, as well as clearly demonstrating their emerging diagnostic and therapeutic importance.

The book contains both black-and-white and color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: Clinical neuroscience has seen much progress in understanding the brain since the Decade of the Brain in the 1990s. Since the first edition of this book in the mid-1990s, much development has occurred that has triggered new editions. This is a much-needed update on the molecular aspects of neuroscience and its contribution to clinical medicine.
Purpose: The main purpose of this book is to make the basic neuroscience to clinical correlation. This objective is worthy, but not necessarily different than that of the second edition. It is just a progression of this book's overall philosophy.
Audience: The book is written primarily for medical and nursing students.
Features: As with any other neuroscience book, this one starts with the basic concepts of the histological and cytological organization of the nervous system. It then progresses to the description of different subdivisions of the central nervous system and incorporates real-life clinical scenarios at the end of each section. The main changes in this third edition are the larger number of clinical correlates, the updated literature, and the accompanying interactive neuroanatomy CD. The combination of updated information, clinical cases, and real-life scenarios make this a necessary update.
Assessment: This is a needed update on clinical neuroscience and a necessary acquisition for any neurosciences library. Students will find it a useful contribution to the field.
