Using a combined functional and regional approach to neuroanatomy, this book explores how parts of the nervous system work together to regulate body systems and produce behavior. It thoroughly covers the sensory, motor, and integrative systems of the brain and presents an overview of the function in relation to structure and the locations of major pathways and neuronal integrative regions. The illustration program features brain views produced by MRI and PET imaging technology, 2-color line illustrations, and myelin-stained sections. The text also features an 80-page atlas of key views of the surface anatomy of the central nervous system and a set of photographs of myelin-stained sections through the CNS in 3-dimensional anatomical planes. Features: * Approaches neuroanatomy from both functional and regional perspectives -- provides understanding of how components of the central nervous system work in conjunction with each other and their anatomical location * Combined text and atlas in one book -- offers increased value to students by integrating information about the anatomical localization of brain function with images that provide a complete reference of anatomical structure * Provides examples of MRI and PET images and angiography -- illustrates the close relationship between neuroanatomy and radiology and helps students learn how to read scans * Offers numerous pedagogical aids: Boxes: discuss topics on brain imaging and advances in the understanding of neural circuits underlying neurological function Chapter summaries: offer concise descriptions of key structures in relation to function Key terms: provide self-assessment tool

TOP-RANKED BY STUDENTS—
CLEAR, VISUALLY COMPELLING, AND MEMORABLE
Neuroanatomy: Text and Atlas approaches neuroanatomy from both functional and regional perspectives to provide an understanding of how the components of the central nervous system work together to sense the world around us, regulate body systems, and produce behavior.
*Completely revised and updated to reflect advances in clinical neuroanatomy and neural science
*Builds knowledge of the regional and functional organization of the spinal cord and brain, one system at a time
*Provides thorough coverage of the sensory, motor, and integrative systems of the brain, together with cerebral vasculature
*Promotes understanding of the complex details of neuroanatomy needed for astute interpretation of radiological images
*Authoritative content enhanced by informative line illustrations, brain views produced by MRI and PET imaging technology and angiography, and myelin-stained histological sections
*Comprehensive atlas provides key views of the surface anatomy of the central nervous system and photographs of myelin-stained sections in three anatomical planes
*Includes features such as clinical topic boxes, chapter summaries, and a Glossary of key terms and structures
