This multimedia resource offers a complete introduction to neuroanatomy with superb, clear and thoroughly labeled images and illustrations within an elegant navigation structure. It emphasizes the practical aspects of how to identify neuroanatomical structures, with quizzes and chapter self-assessments. The content is organised into sections covering light-microscopic neurohistology, electron-microscopic neurohistology, skull-meninges-spinal cord, gross anatomy of the brain, sectional anatomy of the brain, and brain imaging.

Digital Neuroanatomy: An Interactive CD Atlas with Review Text features:

  • Richly illustrated throughout with over 300 images
  • A brief printed textbook that follows the same organization and approach, reviewing all the main concepts
  • Self-grading quizzes with answers that include a detailed explanation
