Essential Neuroscience provides a comprehensive study of the nervous system, from the internal structure of a neuron to the complex functions of the brain. Learn neuroscience through a stepwise approach that starts with the basic building blocks of neural anatomy and expands to cover structures and functions, the interaction of systems, and the science of clinical disorders.
Gain an edge on board exams with frequently-tested information on cranial nerves, behavioral disorders, and vascular syndromes of the brainstem. A well-balanced mix of anatomy, biology, physiology, and chemistry provides an integrated understanding of topics.
Each chapter contains clinical case studies, summary tables, and questions with detailed answers, providing multiple opportunities for self-testing and review. A comprehensive glossary in the back defines important key terms.
Now significantly revised based on student feedback, this best-selling text provides a quick, authoritative review of the most important clinical aspects of neuroanatomy. A new, full-color design highlights the essential information you need to know to excel on course exams and the USMLE Step 1. New objectives begin every chapter, contents have been reorganized and streamlined, and all information has been completely updated. A new Gross Structure chapter lays the foundation for understanding the sectional anatomy in the Atlas chapter, and all terminology is now consistent with Terminologia Anatomica. A companion website offers USMLE-style questions for study and review.
This innovative case-based question-and-answer study guide to neuroradiology is geared to neurology and neurosurgery residents, medical students, and resident graduates preparing for the neurology and neuroradiology boards. The book presents 101 cases from adult neurology, pediatric neurology, and neurosurgery practice covering all major neuroradiology topics. Each case begins with one or more high-resolution images, a brief history, and questions, with answers and detailed explanations on the next page. Cases are presented in random order, rather than grouped by classification, so that readers will approach each case image with no prior clue to the diagnosis.
The cases, questions, and answers will also be available on a companion Website .
Organized classically by system, this popular text gives medical and health professions students a complete, clinically oriented introduction to neuroanatomy. Each chapter begins with clear objectives, includes clinical cases, and ends with clinical notes, clinical problem-solving, and review questions. Hundreds of full-color illustrations, diagnostic images, and color photographs enhance the text.
This Seventh Edition features new information relating the different parts of the skull to the brain areas, expanded coverage of brain development and neuroplasticity, and updated information on stem cell research.
A companion Website includes the fully searchable text and 454 USMLE-style review questions with answers and explanations.
