Clinical Neuroanatomy: A Review with Questions and Explanations, Second Edition is specifically designed to provide students with a clear and succinct review of clinical neuroanatomy as well as prepare you for the National Boards. Clinical Neuroanatomy: A Review with Questions and Explanations, Second Edition begins with the organization of the nervous system and the basic structure and function of neurons, nerve processes, synapses, and nerve fibers. The text then addresses the neuroglia, degeneration and regeneration of nervous tissue, peripheral nerves, and peripheral nerve endings. Special chapters deal with the cranial nerves and the structure and function of the autonomic nervous system. Clinical neuroanatomy is presented in a condensed form, with simple diagrams, radiographs, CT scans, MRIs and a PET scan. At the end of each chapter are National Board Types questions, followed by answers and, where appropriate, brief explanations. Questions based on clinical problems help you understand the clinical relevance of neuroanatomy. Some of the questions are centered around clinical problems requiring neuroanatomical or neurophysiological answers. Medical, dental, and allied health students alike will find this an indispensable resource for review. It is also an ideal study guide for use as a companion to Clinical Neuroanatomy for Medical Students, Fourth Edition, also by Dr. Snell.
