Neuroanatomy: An Atlas of Structures, Sections, and Systems remains one of the most dynamic forces in medical education, delivering abundantly illustrated and clinically essential content in a rapidly expanding field of practice. Now in its Eighth Edition, this atlas continues to build upon its reputation as a premiere teaching resource, combining the best of both worlds—anatomical and clinical.
New features include: even more clinical imaging and relevance, with 15 new CTs/MRIs and 25 new illustrations with nerves highlighted; new features that promote the understanding of neurobiology, including circuit drawings, 2-page spread summarizing hypothalmus, 2-page spread summarizing connections, and summaries added to Anatomical Orientation images; 50 USMLE-style review questions with extensive explanations and bonus Interactive Question Bank online, for a total of 235 Q&As offering self-paced review and exam preparation; 32 stained section photographs in Chapter 6, now printed in their original, accurate color, replacing the previous black and white versions.
This is a terrific atlas; Lippincott’s “the point” website also makes the images available for downloading. A great book and highly recommended for ADVANCED neuroanatomy courses.
For the price I had expected color photographs. It’s very difficult to distinguish some structures in black and white. C’mon, it’s the 21st century!
A Helpful supplement to lecture notes and slides. The atlas is arranged pretty well so you can quiz yourself to see if you know the sections and pathways: One page would be a labelled diagram while the other side is the unlabeled photo. You still have to go to class or read the text to understand whats happening but otherwise, a pretty descent purchase.
This text was required for a neuroanatomy class at the University of Florida. The book is well illustrated and a handy reference to human neuroanatomy. If you take the course, be sure to study everyday.
Well developed and helpful illustrations . Question section helps gain more assurance you are getting the material. Suggest read them first to help focus.
So this is the only neuro atlas I’ve used, so who knows, maybe it’s great, but the axial cross sections are only labelled on the page next to it. Although most students didn’t seem to care, it made it very difficult to know which spot the term corresponded to (i.e. try picking out nucleus ambiguus on a cross section of the brainstem without a line pointing right at it). This only affected the cross section pictures however (section 6 I believe), so if you’re just doing external features it’s not that bad. The online resources basically allow you to cover the answers without putting something over it which is nice but once again it doesn’t work at all with the cross section pictures.
