An engaging and highly novel presentation of functional neuroanatomy, Functional
Neuroanatomy provides a thorough understanding of the function of the central
nervous system. Its takes a problem- and exercise-based approach to the material,
with everything from dissections, radiological material, and histology to clinical
cases and experimental data. The text shows histology of various neurological
disorders, accompanied by descriptions of clinically relevant pathology. Numerous
patient presentations support the case studies by offering real examples of
how functional neuroanatomy applies to clinical problems.
Taking a highly interactive approach to the field, the text offers over 500 clearly labeled images of gross, microscopic, and radiological images. It cross-references between chapters and reinforces concepts introduced earlier. The emphasis stays on clinical relevance throughout, and the book concludes with an atlas of labeled gross structures and cross-sections.
