- Taylor & Francis
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.
