Neuroanatomy: An Illustrated Colour Text
This textbook is designed to help medical students learn, understand and remember the essentials of this notoriously awkward subject. The text is broken up by eye-catching clinical points and summary boxes, features that demonstrate the relevance of the subject to medical practice and aid rapid learning and revision. The book also reproduces and labels full colour coronal (ie, vertical, front to back) and horizontal sections of the brain, allowing the student to learn and understand the subject without having to buy a separate atlas.
