Mastering Neuroscience

A Laboratory Guide

Enhance your knowledge of neuroscience as it relates to rehabilitation with the first neuroscience laboratory guide designed just for rehabilitation students! This unique manual helps you easily identify the structures of the nervous system and gain a better understanding of the mechanism of the sensory and motor pathways and how they contribute to movement. Fourteen hands-on labs cover the internal and external structures of the CNS, as well as the ventricular system, cranial nerves, the meninges, blood supply, the muscle spindle and GTO, sensory and motor pathways, and the vestibular and visual systems. Numerous case studies illustrate spinal cord injury, brainstem, cranial nerves, and/or cerebrum dysfunction, helping you improve your clinical reasoning skills.
