Overview

The majority of medical students plan a career in clinical practice. To achieve the goal of intelligent competent care, all practicing physicians must comprehend the signs and symptoms of common neurologic disorder by possessing a useful understanding of the neuroanatomy, normal and disordered, underlying their patients' complaints, and exhibited in their neurologic examination of the patient.

Designed for medical students studying neuroanatomy for the first time, this book depicts the neurological structure and function of the central nervous system that medical students can digest and understand on their first encounter with the subject. With over 300 drawings and illustrations which are profuse, simple and easily understood, the book provides the student with an intelligible core of clinically relevant neuroanatomic knowledge. Presented in a concise, easily lively manner, the text also include s two exteniseve appendices that enhance the practical value of the book -A Neuroanatomy Atlas and A Dissection Guide.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Eli Tobias, MD, PhD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a textbook of neuroanatomy, using dissection models and line drawings to facilitate understanding of a complex subject.
Purpose: Understanding clinical symptoms and signs completely depends on their relationship to underlying anatomy. This book is an attempt to describe this relationship.
Audience: This book is designed for medical students to help them comprehend the basis and symptoms of neurologic disorders. These are very worthwhile objectives, and the author goes a long way in simplifying the complex neuroanatomic structures to make them more readily understood..
Features: Excellent anatomic dissections and lucid line drawings aid in the understanding and facilitate the transition to clinical features of pathology.
Assessment: This is a most useful book to simplify the awesome amount and complexity of the material the medical student needs to digest and understand to make clinical symptoms and signs of neurologic disease comprehensible.

Depicts the neurological structure and function of the central nervous system for first-year medical students. The user-friendly text and simple b&w drawings provide an overview of the field, and explain embryology of the nervous system and the workings of the spinal nerve and spinal cord, the ventricular system, and the autonomic and visceral autonomic system. Sections on the gross and internal anatomy of the intracranial central nervous system feature b&w diagrams and photos of brains. Appendices offer a neuroanatomy atlas and a dissection guide.
