The explosion of new information in recent years has challenged instructors of neuroscience to synthesize a diverse range of topics and present them in a way that's comprehensible to students. This first edition of Essential Neuroscience presents a solution, delivering the right level of detail and scope of information for medical students and residents.
Readers are presented with all of the basic neuroscience topics, but with a focus on the essential concepts and facts intrinsic to the practice of medicine. The result is a refreshing text that makes learning the subject matter simple yet meaningful.
The authors begin with the analysis of a single neuron, and then relate how neurons communicate with each other. Discussions progress to the anatomy of the spinal cord and brain, followed by a detailed examination of the sensory, motor, and integrative systems. This building-block approach helps students master the subject material and prepare for national board examinations.
Benefit from these valuable features:
Essential Neuroscience is an ideal resource for medical students, neurology residents, and students who specialize in associated biological sciences.
