This thoroughly updated and revised edition of a classic textbook reflects the many advances that have occurred in our basic understanding of neurological processes and their clinical significance. Designed specifically for medical students and allied health professionals, the book alternates scientific and clinical chapters that explain the basic science underlying neurological processes and then relate that science to the understanding of neurological disorders and their treatment. These popular clinical correlations cover, in detail, disorders of the spinal cord, neuronal migration, the autonomic nervous system, ocular motility, and the basal ganglia, as well as demyelinating disorders, stroke, dementia, and abnormalities of cognition, Parkinson's disease, nerve trauma, peripheral neuropathy, aphasias, and myasthenia gravis. Authoritative and comprehensive, Neuroscience in Medicine, Second Edition provides a fully up-to-date and readily accessible guide to brain functions at the cellular and molecular level, as well as clearly demonstrating their diagnostic and therapeutic importance.

Review quote

In this 700-page book, 32 chapters are presented by well-known authorities in the neurosciences. From basic neuroscience to complex clinical scenarios, the book displays a large range of topics that emphasize the brain, its properties, and the genetic nature of its behavior. Newer radiological tools are explained and examples displayed in high-definition photographs. The pictures are of good quality and the references up-to-date. This is a good contribution to the field of neurosciences and it should be in all general medical libraries. - Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal
