Neuroscience at a Glance is designed to provide medical students and other allied health students who require a concise guide to neuroscience, with a quick review of a traditionally complex field.

The authors successfully integrate anatomy, biochemistry, physiology and pharmacology to provide a review of the structure and function of the nervous system. Although not a clinical neurology text, the second edition includes four new chapters on Examination of the Nervous System, Investigation of the Nervous System, Clinical Disorders of the Sensory Pathways and Clinical Disorders of the Motor Pathways. The introduction of these new chapters provides excellent clinical relevence for readers while the book continues to provide accessible up-to-date explanations of neuroscience.

All in all, the second edition of Neuroscience at a Glance provides students with an invaluable review of this complex subject.


"Neuroscience at a Glance gives you just the right amount of information presented in a student-friendly format...There is also a free online companion to the book at www.medicalneuroscience.com containing glossaries and relevant further reading signposts which I found useful.

In my opinion, it gives the student everything needed to learn about and understand the working of the brain and spinal cord without bogging you down by over-complicating things."


"Neuroscience. would have been much easier to understand if I had had this book"
