Essential Clinical Neuroanatomy (Essentials)
Essential Clinical Neuroanatomy is the first neuroanatomy text that consistently illustrates and discusses the anatomy of the central nervous system from the clinical perspective. All of the illustrations are provided in the clinical view (using the axial radiologic standard of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging). This provides consistency throughout the text and throughout the career of the reader. In addition, the neural pathways are color coded for easier recognition and recall with green indicating sensory components, red indicating voluntary motor components, and purple indicating involuntary (autonomic) components. The clinically relevant neuroanatomy is highlighted, with case studies, clinically‐oriented study questions, and clinical boxes of interest. Anatomic details that do not have direct clinical relevance are de‐emphasized.
The text is divided into two main sections: the first eleven chapters provide the neuroanatomy of the central nervous system, while the last seven chapters provide descriptions of the sensory, motor, and integration systems within the central nervous system. Each chapter begins with objectives and an outline of the material to be covered. Within each chapter, highlighted clinical boxes are presented, while case studies and clinically relevant multiple choice questions are found at the end of each chapter. Each chapter contains a list of additional readings that include more detail‐oriented textbooks, as well as current review articles.This text is designed for those in the health sciences who require a basic introduction to clinical neuroanatomy.
This can include allied health students, first‐year medical students, dental students, and neuroscience students. Because of its essential nature, it can be useful for those reviewing neuroanatomy for major licensing or competency examinations.
