This complete, yet concise text is designed to help students easily master the anatomy and basic physiology of the nervous system. Accessible and clear, the text highlights interrelationships between systems, structures, and the rest of the body as it moves through various regions of the brain. A comprehensive chapter on embryology furthers this end, showing students the major themes in the configuration of human anatomy. The organization navigates the student through the many details involved in neuroanatomy. The first nine chapters introduce the main principles and terms that play a role in neuroanatomy, and the remaining chapters then use this information to describe the anatomy and function of the various pathways and discrete systems.

The text emphasizes the clinical relevance of the material through clinical cases, questions, and follow-up discussions in each chapter, motivating students to learn the information. Clinical considerations in each chapter indicate medical conditions relevant to the chapter topics. In addition, synonym/eponym tables in most chapters organize the many different terms for the same vocabulary word, and summary tables assist students in learning and memorizing. An accompanying website includes the illustrations, along with animations of key processes.
