Summary note:
"The most comprehensive approach to neuroanatomy from both a functional and regional perspective NEW full-color images! Neuroanatomy Text and Atlas explores how parts of the nervous system work together to regulate body systems and produce behavior. The book thoroughly covers the sensory, motor and integrative systems of the brain and presents an overview of the function in relation to structure and the locations of major pathways and neuronal integrative regions. Features NEW full-color images NEW a case study or a clinical description question has been added to each chapter NEW online learning center includes images of surface anatomy of the central nervous system and case studies A comprehensive text and atlas: Introduction to the Central Nervous System; Structural and Functional Organization of the Central Nervous System; Vasculature of the Central Nervous System and Cerebrospinal Fluid; Spinal Mechanosensory System; Pain, Temperature, and Itch; Cranial Nerves and the Trigeminal and Viscerosensory Systems; The Visual System; The Auditory System; Chemical Senses: Taste and Smell; Descending Motor Pathways and the Motor Functions of the Spinal Cord; Cranial Nerve Motor Nuclei and Brain Stem Motor Functions; The Vestibular and Oculomotor Systems; The Cerebellum; 14.
