This book provides a simple and direct method of learning the essentials of neuroanatomy by illustrating the brain, spinal cord, and other anatomical structures in easy-to-understand, three-dimensional drawings. It allows the reader to learn the pathways and parts of the nervous system by reading about them and coloring and labeling them at the same time. Carefully thought-out black and white drawings explain and depict the basic structure of the brain and spinal cord and their major components. The illustrations of the structure of the eye and ear are comprehensive and reveal their ultra-structure in exceptional detail. Presents a simple, direct, and interactive method of learning the essentials of neuroanatomy All key microanatomical and gross anatomical structures are presented with emphasis on pathways The reader identifies, labels, and colors each section, thereby learning or reinforcing anatomic knowledge and aiding the memory The anatomist-artist author has a flair for creating clear and interesting anatomical depictions Witty cartoons describe word origins in humorous and memorable fashion (anatomic terms are often cumbersome and somewhat complex, making them difficult to remember) Recent discoveries about the functions of the brain and spinal cord are represented Features over 50 new anatomical plates, including 10 new drawings of the cerebellum Serotonin and adrenergic pathways are new additions

The Human Brain Book is a complete guide to the one organ in the body that makes each of us what we are - unique individuals. It combines the latest findings from the field of neuroscience with expert text and state-of-the-art illustrations and imaging techniques to provide an incomparable insight into every facet of the brain. Layer by layer, it reveals the fascinating details of this remarkable structure, covering all the key anatomy and delving into the inner workings of the mind, unlocking its many mysteries, and helping you to understand what's going on in those millions of little gray and white cells. Tricky concepts are illustrated and explained with clarity and precision, as The Human Brain Book looks at how the brain sends messages to the rest of the body, how we think and feel, how we perform unconscious actions (for example, breathing), explores the nature of genius, asks why we behave the way we do, explains how we see and hear things, and how and why we dream. Physical and psychological disorders affecting the brain and nervous system are clearly illustrated and summarized in easy-to-understand terms.

An ideal tool for helping your clients to visualize the complexities of the brain and mental health disorders--and a useful refresher for practitioners who find brain anatomy overwhelming--this color-coded brain puzzle puts it all in perspective, allowing users to deconstruct the major functional areas of the cerebral cortex to see exactly how and where they fit together. Each section of the brain is a removable piece. All the major cortex areas are represented, in a parietal view--visual, associative, motor, auditory, emotional, sensory association, olfactory, somatosensory, Wernicke's area, areas governing higher mental functions, and the cerebellum. A legend is included indicating what each of the functional areas is responsible for, from short-term memory and hunger, to language comprehension and creativity, and the ability to concentrate. Fun as well as educational, this hands-on model will help you engage your clients--and brush up on your own knowledge of brain anatomy.

This thoroughly revised new edition of a classic book provides a clinically inspired but scientifically guided approach to the biological foundations of human mental function in health and disease. It includes authoritative coverage of all the major areas related to behavioral neurology, neuropsychology, and neuropsychiatry. Each chapter, written by a world-renowned expert in the relevant area, provides an introductory background as well as an up-to-date review of the most recent developments. Clinical relevance is emphasized but is placed in the context of cognitive neuroscience, basic neuroscience, and functional imaging. Major cognitive domains such as frontal lobe function, attention and neglect, memory, language, prosody, complex visual processing, and object identification are reviewed in detail. A comprehensive chapter on behavioral neuroanatomy provides a background for brain-behavior interactions in the cerebral cortex, limbic system, basal ganglia, thalamus, and cerebullum. Chapters on temperolimbic epilepsy, major psychiatric syndromes, and dementia provide in-depth analyses of these neurobehavioral entities and their neurobiological coordinates. Changes for this second edition include the reflection throughout the book of the new and flourishing alliance of behavioral neurology, neuropsychology, and neuropsychiatry with cognitive science;major revision of all chapters; new authorship of those on language and memory; and the inclusion of entirely new chapters on psychiatric syndromes and the dementias. Both as a textbook and a reference work, the second edition of Principles of Behavioral and Cognitive Neurology represents an invaluable resource for behavioral neurologists, neuropsychologists, neuropsychiatrists, cognitive and basic neuroscientists, geriatricians, physiatrists, and their students and trainees.
