Description

"Clinical Neuroanatomy and Neuroscience" by Drs. M. J. T. FitzGerald, Gregory Gruener, and Estomih Mtui, already known as the most richly illustrated book available to help you through the complexity of neuroscience, brings you improved online resources with this updated edition. You'll find the additional content on Student Consult. It includes one detailed tutorial for each chapter, 200 USMLE Step I questions, and MRI 3-plane sequences. With clear visual images and concise discussions accompanying the text's 30 case studies, this reference does an impressive job of integrating clinical neuroanatomy with the clinical application of neuroscience.

Review quote

"This offers medical students an opportunity to learn neuroanatomy and basic neuroscience and apply it to the bedside. Neuroanatomy can sometimes be difficult to learn, but this book guides visual learners from the CNS to the PNS with ease. Difficult neuroanatomy topics such as the brainstem and spinal cord pathways are beautifully illustrated. The abundance of helpful illustrations and clinical correlations set this book apart from others in the field. This edition has not only updated information, illustrations/figures, and references, but also the website features including tutorials, multiple choice questions in USMLE format, and case studies." - Amaal Jilani Starling, MD(Mayo Clinic Arizona), Excerpts from Doody's review service
