Neuroscience guides students through the challenges and excitement of this rapidly changing field. The book's length and accessibility of its writing are a successful combination that has proven to work equally well for medical students and in undergraduate neuroscience courses.

Mark Williams, Leonard E. White, and Andrew C. Mace The new Sylvius 4.0 provides a unique computer-based learning environment for exploring and understanding the structure of the human central nervous system. Sylvius 4.0 features fully annotated surface views of the human brain, as well as interactive tools for dissecting the central nervous system and viewing fully annotated cross-sections of preserved specimens and living subjects imaged by magnetic resonance. This newly expanded and reconfigured Sylvius 4.0 is more than a conventional atlas; it incorporates a comprehensive, visually rich, searchable database of more than 500 neuroanatomical terms that are concisely defined and visualized in photographs, magnetic resonance images, and illustrations from Neuroscience, Fourth Edition. For users familiar with its predecessors, this version of Sylvius unites the atlas content and utility of SylviusPro (and earlier versions of Sylvius) with the reference content of SylviusVG (and Sylvius for Neuroscience), making this version of Sylvius a single source for teaching and understanding the organization of the human central nervous system. The new Sylvius 4.0 is an excellent resource for neuroscience educators, medical students, physical therapy students, other postgraduate and professional learners, as well as undergraduate pre-medical and biological psychology students.
