  • A comprehensive, full-color guide to neuroanatomy and its functional and clinical applications—the most trusted resource for students and practitioners

  • Engagingly written and extensively illustrated to get medical students, residents, trainees, and clinicians up to speed on neuroanatomy, its functional underpinnings and its relationship to the clinic

  • Coverage of the basic structure and function of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves as well as clinical presentations of disease processes involving specific structures

  • Illustrations include CT and MRI scans, block diagrams showing muscle actions, root-by-root and nerve-by-nerve images of sensory areas and muscle intervention

  • Essentials for the Clinical Neuroanatomist list appears in each chapter

  • Explores the relationship between neuroanatomy and neurology and reviews the advances in molecular and cellular biology and neuropharmacology as related to neuroanatomy

Unique chapter on Introduction to Clinical Thinking

Popular chapter-ending “Essentials for the Clinician” information boxes enhanced/expanded to make essential points even clearer

Case studies demonstrate how concepts apply to real-world situations

Appendix topics include neurologic examination testing muscle function and spinal nerves and plexuses

Well-designed, explicative diagrams, that have been refined over many editions, that make neuroanatomy clear and easy to learn.
