Summary note:
"Organized classically by system, this popular text gives medical and health professions students a complete, clinically oriented introduction to neuroanatomy. Written by an anatomist who also has experience as a practicing physician, each chapter begins with clear objectives, includes clinical cases, and ends with clinical notes, clinical problem-solving, and review questions. Hundreds of full-color illustrations, diagnostic images, and color photographs enhance the text. Each chapter follows a standardized format: objectives, clinical cases, end-of-chapter clinical notes, clinical problem-solving, and review. Numerous tables summarize material for easier study."--BOOK JACKET.
