Ideal for students of neuroscience and neuroanatomy, the new edition of Netter's Atlas of Neuroscience combines the didactic well-loved illustrations of Dr. Frank Netter with succinct text and clinical points, providing a highly visual, clinically oriented guide to the most important topics in this subject. The logically organized content presents neuroscience from three perspectives: an overview of the nervous system, regional neuroscience, and systemic neuroscience, enabling you to review complex neural structures and systems from different contexts.

Key Features

  • Coverage of both regional and systemic neurosciences allows you to learn structure and function in different and important contexts.
  • Combines the precision and beauty of Netter and Netter-style illustrations to highlight key neuroanatomical concepts and clinical correlations.
  • Reflects the current understanding of the neural components and supportive tissue, regions, and systems of the brain, spinal cord, and periphery.
  • Uniquely informative drawings provide a quick and memorable overview of anatomy, function, and clinical relevance.
  • Succinct and useful format utilizes tables and short text to offer easily accessible "at-a-glance" information.
  • Provides an overview of the basic features of the spinal cord, brain, and peripheral nervous system, the vasculature, meninges and cerebrospinal fluid, and basic development.
  • Integrates the peripheral and central aspects of the nervous system.
  • Bridges neuroanatomy and neurology through the use of correlative radiographs.
  • Highlights cross-sectional brain stem anatomy and side-by-side comparisons of horizontal sections, CTs and MRIs.
  • Features video of radiograph sequences and 3D reconstructions to enhance your understanding of the nervous system.
