Cranial Nerves: Function and Dysfunction

Front Cover

Cranial Nerves, in its third edition, will be appreciated by students studying neuroanatomy and gross anatomy across the health sciences (medicine, rehabilitation sciences, dentistry, pharmacy, speech pathology, audiology, nursing, physical and health education, and biomedical communications). Residents and practitioners will find a valuable reference in neurology, neurosurgery, otolaryngology, and maxillofacial surgery.

Cranial Nerves: Function & Dysfunction presents problem-based learning cases and clinical testing in a vibrant visual format. The color-coded functional drawings and text guide the user through the pathways/modalities from the periphery of the body to the brain (sensory input) and from the brain to the periphery (motor output). Each pathway is described according to the direction of the nerve impulse, not according to the embryologic outgrowth of the nerve. Cranial Nerves' text, by separating the nerve fiber modalities, highlights important clinical aspects of each nerve.
