Description

Functional and Clinical Neuroanatomy is a comprehensive, yet easy-to read introduction to neuroanatomy covering the structures and functions of the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems. It also focuses on the clinical presentation of disease processes involving specific structures. This book is the first review of clinical neuroanatomy that is written specifically for nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, medical students, and medical assistants who work in the field of neurology. It will also be an invaluable resource for graduate and postgraduate students in neuroscience. There are 22 chapters in total, with the final two chapters discussing a complete neurological examination and diagnostic evaluations. All chapters are co-authored by an internationally known medical educator and a neurologist, to ensure the contents are easy to understand and grasp by this targeted audience.
