- Features a unique collection of exclusively human material throughout the book.
- Makes complex information easier to understand with summary boxes under each major heading... highlighting of clinical correlates...and better cross-referencing between the illustrations and text.
- Organizes material into two parts: the first focusing on the morphology of the brain and spinal cord; the second on the functional relationships between these structures.
- An enhanced presentation of chemical neuroanatomy • an expanded section on Reflex Arc • more detail on the vestibular nuclei and the systems with which they interact • an updated discussion of basal ganglia circuitry • more coverage of older human fetuses brains • new MR and PET images correlated to anatomic structures • and more discussions of the clinical relevance of neuroanatomy.
- Nearly 100 new photographs plus new orientational artwork that helps readers visualize the location of selected structures within the body.
