Publisher: Sunderland, Mass. : Sinauer Associates, ©2010.

Neuroanatomy is an extremely complex subject. Overwhelmed by anatomical detail, students often miss out on the functional beauty of the nervous system and its relevance to clinical practice. Blumenfeld's book resolves this dilemma, using high-quality radiological images, interactive pedagogy and over 100 case studies to bring the subject to life.
