Description:

Concise yet comprehensive, this classic overview of neuroanatomy synthesizes functional implications and clinical relevance. Highly readable and extensively illustrated, this book links structure, function, and clinical findings while covering neuroanatomy from the basic structure and function of the brain and spinal cord to the advanced clinical symptoms of disease processes. This text includes a unique chapter entitled Introduction to Clinical Thinking, which provides a basis for thinking about neuroanatomy in terms of its implications for disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. This comprehensive text features clinical correlations and clinical illustrations integrated throughout the book, enhancing comprehension and diagnostic skills
