This book provides a simple and direct method of learning the essentials of neuroanatomy by illustrating the brain, spinal cord, and other anatomical structures in easy-to-understand, three-dimensional drawings. It allows the reader to learn the pathways and parts of the nervous system by reading about them and coloring and labeling them at the same time. Carefully thought-out black and white drawings explain and depict the basic structure of the brain and spinal cord and their major components. The illustrations of the structure of the eye and ear are comprehensive and reveal their ultra-structure in exceptional detail. Presents a simple, direct, and interactive method of learning the essentials of neuroanatomy All key microanatomical and gross anatomical structures are presented with emphasis on pathways The reader identifies, labels, and colors each section, thereby learning or reinforcing anatomic knowledge and aiding the memory The anatomist-artist author has a flair for creating clear and interesting anatomical depictions Witty cartoons describe word origins in humorous and memorable fashion (anatomic terms are often cumbersome and somewhat complex, making them difficult to remember) Recent discoveries about the functions of the brain and spinal cord are represented Features over 50 new anatomical plates, including 10 new drawings of the cerebellum Serotonin and adrenergic pathways are new additions

Neuroanatomy: Draw It to Know It, Third Edition teaches neuroanatomy in a purely kinesthetic way. In using this book, the reader draws each neuroanatomical pathway and structure, and in the process, creates memorable and reproducible schematics for the various learning points in Neuroanatomy in a hands-on, enjoyable and highly effective manner. In addition to this unique method, Neuroanatomy: Draw It to Know It also provides a remarkable repository of reference materials, including numerous anatomic and radiographic brain images and illustrations from many other classic texts to enhance the learning experience. In the third edition of this now-classic text, the author completely reorganized the book based on user-feedback, taking a more intuitive and easy-to-use approach. For the first time, the illustrations are in full color. No other text in neuroanatomy engages the reader in as direct a manner as this book and none covers the advanced level of detail found while retaining the simplistic approach to the learning which has become the cornerstone of the text. Neuroanatomy: Draw It to Know It is singular in its ability to engage and instruct without overwhelming any level of neuroanatomy student.

An ideal tool for helping your clients to visualize the complexities of the brain and mental health disorders--and a useful refresher for practitioners who find brain anatomy overwhelming--this color-coded brain puzzle puts it all in perspective, allowing users to deconstruct the major functional areas of the cerebral cortex to see exactly how and where they fit together. Each section of the brain is a removable piece. All the major cortex areas are represented, in a parietal view--visual, associative, motor, auditory, emotional, sensory association, olfactory, somatosensory, Wernicke's area, areas governing higher mental functions, and the cerebellum. A legend is included indicating what each of the functional areas is responsible for, from short-term memory and hunger, to language comprehension and creativity, and the ability to concentrate. Fun as well as educational, this hands-on model will help you engage your clients--and brush up on your own knowledge of brain anatomy.

This thoroughly revised new edition of a classic book provides a clinically inspired but scientifically guided approach to the biological foundations of human mental function in health and disease. It includes authoritative coverage of all the major areas related to behavioral neurology, neuropsychology, and neuropsychiatry. Each chapter, written by a world-renowned expert in the relevant area, provides an introductory background as well as an up-to-date review of the most recent developments. Clinical relevance is emphasized but is placed in the context of cognitive neuroscience, basic neuroscience, and functional imaging. Major cognitive domains such as frontal lobe function, attention and neglect, memory, language, prosody, complex visual processing, and object identification are reviewed in detail. A comprehensive chapter on behavioral neuroanatomy provides a background for brain-behavior interactions in the cerebral cortex, limbic system, basal ganglia, thalamus, and cerebullum. Chapters on temperolimbic epilepsy, major psychiatric syndromes, and dementia provide in-depth analyses of these neurobehavioral entities and their neurobiological coordinates. Changes for this second edition include the reflection throughout the book of the new and flourishing alliance of behavioral neurology, neuropsychology, and neuropsychiatry with cognitive science;major revision of all chapters; new authorship of those on language and memory; and the inclusion of entirely new chapters on psychiatric syndromes and the dementias. Both as a textbook and a reference work, the second edition of Principles of Behavioral and Cognitive Neurology represents an invaluable resource for behavioral neurologists, neuropsychologists, neuropsychiatrists, cognitive and basic neuroscientists, geriatricians, physiatrists, and their students and trainees.
