Clinically oriented and student-friendly, Basic Clinical Neuroscience provides the anatomic and pathophysiologic basis necessary to understand neurologic abnormalities. This concise but comprehensive text emphasizes the localization of specific medically important anatomic structures and clinically important pathways, using anatomy-enhancing illustrations.
Updated throughout to reflect recent advances in the field, the Third Edition features new clinical boxes, over 100 additional review questions, and striking full color artwork.
- A new full-color design enhances illustrations and images and makes the material more engaging and easier to understand.
- Additional clinical images, case studies, review questions, and clinical correlations have been added to help students master the subject matter.
- Chapter-opening cases apply concepts to clinical practice, allowing students to see the real world relevance of what they are learning.
- Clinical Connection boxes inserted near relevant anatomical structure or pathway discussions prepare students for the boards and clinical practice.
- A complete chapter focuses on locating lesions.
- Chapter-ending review questions allow students to assess their understanding as they move through the book.
- Unique, hand-drawn artwork—now updated to full color—clarifies key structures.
- An end-of-the-book glossary of key terms is ideal for self-testing and review.
- An Atlas of Myelin-Stained Sections helps students identify key structures.
