Visually Memorable Neuroanatomy for Beginners takes a close look at the anatomy of the human brain and teaches readers to identify and examine its structures in a relatable way. Unlike large textbooks that deliver a superficial overview of the subject, this book explores the anatomy and physiology of the brain using mnemonic techniques and informative comic figures that present brain regions at an introductory level, allowing readers to easily identify different parts of the brain. This volume is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and researchers in the medicine, health sciences, and biological sciences.

Beginning with the morphology of the brain and spinal cord, this book then explores the somatic nerve and autonomic nerve, the cranial nerve and spinal nerve, the function of the brain, and concludes with the development of the nervous system.

Key Features

  • Features simplified illustrations for understanding the complicated neuroanatomy structures
  • Introduces memorizing tips (mnemonics) to help students learn
  • Describes how best to identify structures in cadaver specimens
  • Includes comic-style figures to make neuroanatomy approachable for newcomers


Undergraduate and graduate students in medicine, health sciences, and biological sciences, neuroscientists, clinicians, post-doctoral fellows, and researchers

"Reading this book, however, you can remember the function of geniculate nucleus forever, without memorizing (Fig. 1C). The tip is easy, and it is full of instructional humor. They are on the students' side even in terms of neuroanatomy terminology (Fig. 1E). Whether the reader is a beginner student or a middle-aged scholar, this is a book that gives you confidence and turns painful memories into beautiful memories. I recommend reading first." --JKMS (Journal of Korean Medical Science)

"The practicing neuropsychologist may question why they should make room on their bookshelf for this new arrival. This is not the book for neuropsychology trainees to gain an initial familiarization with neuroanatomy, unless the book is used in conjunction with a class or another neuroanatomy reference. Instead, this book is an excellent addition for individuals looking to consolidate their neuroanatomy knowledge. This book is suitable for individuals of various disciplines preparing for a neuroanatomy exam, or for neuropsychologists specifically, in preparation for a board exam in neuropsychology. The index provided at the end of the book affords a quick reference for individuals looking to refresh their neuroanatomy knowledge periodically. For the general practicing or research neuropsychologist, the neuroanatomy content of this book is quite detailed and extensive. As a whole, this book represents a quick reference guide for location of neuroanatomical structures and their basic functioning. For professionals looking to solidify their neuroanatomy knowledge, this book is a great adjunct in facilitating acquisition of a vast amount of information in a playful and amusing manner that offers a nice variety and alternative to the conventional format of neuroanatomy resources." --Applied Neuropsychology- Adult
