Overview

Covering the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the nervous system, Veterinary Neuroanatomy and Clinical Neurology, 4th Edition helps you diagnose the location of neurologic lesions in small animals, horses, and food animals. Practical guidelines explain how to perform neurologic examinations, interpret examination results, and formulate effective treatment plans. Descriptions of neurologic disorders are accompanied by illustrations, radiographs, and clinical case examples with corresponding online video clips depicting the actual patient described in the text. Written by veterinary neuroanatomy and clinical neurology experts Alexander de Lahunta, Eric Glass, and Marc Kent, this resource is an essential tool in the diagnosis and treatment of neurologic disorders in the clinical setting.

  • Disease content is presented as case descriptions, allowing you to learn in a manner that is similar to the challenge of diagnosing and treating neurologic disorders in the clinical setting: 1) Description of the neurologic disorder, 2) Neuroanatomic diagnosis and how it was determined, the differential diagnosis, and any ancillary data, and 3) Course of the disease, the final clinical or necropsy diagnosis, and a brief discussion of the syndrome.
  • Over 250 high-quality radiographs and over 800 vibrant color photographs and line drawings depict anatomy, physiology, and pathology (including gross and microscopic lesions), and enhance your ability to diagnose challenging neurologic cases.
  • A companion website hosted by Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine features more than 380 videos that bring concepts to life and clearly demonstrate the neurologic disorders and examination techniques described in case examples throughout the text.
  • High-quality, state-of-the-art MR images correlate with stained transverse sections of the brain, showing minute detail that the naked eye cannot see.
  • NEW! High-quality, state-of-the-art MR images in the Neuroanatomy by Dissection chapter takes an atlas approach to presenting normal brain anatomy of the dog, filling a critical gap in the literature since Marcus Singer’s The Brain of the Dog in Section.
  • NEW Uncontrolled Involuntary Skeletal Muscle Contractions chapter provides new coverage of this movement disorder.
  • NEW case descriptions offer additional practice in working your way through real-life scenarios to reach an accurate diagnosis and an effective treatment plan for neurologic disorders.
  • NEW! A detailed Video Table of Contents in the front of the book makes it easier to access the videos that correlate to case examples.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The third edition really does cater for everyone; undergraduates, practitioners and specialist neurologists will all find this book an absolute delight. (...) The result is an outstanding combination of neuroanatomy, neuropathology and clinical neurology. A major innovation is the inclusion of text to compliment a series of video clips available for view on a Cornell website. The system works really well, drawing on the authors' vast archive of examples of clinical conditions in all domestic species. There are 382 video clips available, each one with relevant text in the book. (...) The attention to detail in this book is truly impressive and, if the reader wants further information on any topic, there is a comprehensive list of references at the end of each chapter. Much more could be said about this great book but I recommend buying it for oneself; it will be money well-spent."
- The European Journal of Companion Animal Practice, April 2009
