Functional Neuroanatomy: An Interactive Text and Manual
Taking a highly interactive approach to the field, the text offers over 500 clearly labeled images of gross, microscopic, and radiological images. It cross-references between chapters and reinforces concepts introduced earlier. The emphasis stays on clinical relevance throughout, and the book concludes with an atlas of labeled gross structures and cross-sections.
