Neuroanatomical Basis of Clinical Neurology
Superbly illustrated and clearly written Neuroanatomical Basis of Clinical Neurology bridges the gap between the twin disciplines of neuroanatomy and neurology, aiding the understanding of neurologic disorders by investigating their anatomic basis. The extensive coverage of the peripheral and central nervous systems in the context of neurological disorders and conditions sets it apart from other neuroanatomy texts.
The book covers both morphological and functional aspects of neuroanatomy. It describes the anatomy of each component of the central, peripheral, and somatic nervous systems in detail, and then demonstrates the relationship between neuroanatomy and the function of the sensory and motor systems. The author has skilfully integrated text and diagrams, highlighting and clarifying the numerous functionally important pathways in the central and peripheral nervous systems. In addition, he includes descriptions of molecular pathways within cells, and the ways in which their perturbation can give rise to disease mechanisms.
The extensive illustrations and comprehensive coverage combine to make Neuroanatomical Basis of Clinical Neurology an extraordinarily complete resource to the human nervous system and the principles of neuroscience.
