Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Throughout each section, there are outstanding color illustrations that help the reader visualize the location of neuroanatomical structures and understand the material presented. As a quick reference to neuroscience, the publication is well suited for use by both clinicians in physical and occupational therapy and all students in professions related to rehabilitation. This is a great reference to have in any clinic that commonly treats patients with neurological deficits. It is an easy-to-use, fast method for those who require information at their fingertips. Students as well as seasoned therapists will benefit from the information in this text.”

—Kristen Kwiatkowski-Digwood, ADVANCE for Physical Therapists & PT Assistants

“Throughout each section, there are outstanding color illustrations “that help visualize the location of neuroanatomical structures…As a “quick reference” to Neuroscience, the publication is well-suited for use of Clinicians in physical therapy and occupational therapy as well as bring a “dynamic text” for all students in professions related to rehabilitation.”

—Jay Schleichkorn, PhD, PT, Dr. Jay's E-Book Reports

"Occupational therapists working in the area of neurological rehabilitation will find that this is a truly useful tool to be consulted time and time again, and occupational therapy professors will find it a source of tricks and strategies on how to transmit the essentials of neurological functioning in a way that can be readily assimilated by their students."

—Isabelle Beaudry Bellefeuille, Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy

This reference for rehabilitation professionals and students provides information on neuroanatomical structures and functions. In each chapter, Gutman (occupational therapy, Long Island U.) presents clinical correlations regarding the most common neurologic conditions. A sampling of topics includes the division of the nervous system, sensory receptors, pain, spinal cord injury and disease, disorders of muscle tone, cerebrovascular disorders, neurotransmitters, and the aging brain. The text is accompanied by color illustrations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
