Visually Memorable Neuroanatomy for Beginners takes a close look at the anatomy of the human brain and teaches readers in a relatable way to identify and examine its structures. In contrast to 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 presents brain regions at an introductory level. This volume is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and researchers in medicine, and the health and biological sciences.
