Summary and Info
The Atlas of Functional Neuroanatomy helps the student andpractitioner to visualize and understand the many parts of the central nervous system - the key to knowing where diseases occur.The text that accompanies every image explains all of the structures, within the spinal cord and the brain. With color-enhanced illustrations, the Atlas presents an overview of the nervous system, followed by the sensory and motor systems as they traverse the CNS, which prepares you to work through the localization process. It offers a detailed look at the microanatomy, particularly of the brainstem. The final section features a unique set of illustrations as the foundation for an integrated view of the structure and function of the limbic system.The Atlas includes radiographic images. The accompanying CD-ROM contains all of the illustrations from the print version, with the advantage of 3-D visualization and full color. It includes the pathways of the spinal cord and brainstem, the microanatomy of the brainstem, and the brain's blood supply. All of this enables you to approach the diseases of the nervous system with a strong anatomical background.
