Human Neuroanatomy, 2nd Edition is a comprehensive overview of the anatomy of the human brain and spinal cord. The book is written at a level to be of use as a text for advanced students and a foundational reference for researchers, clinicians in the field. Building on the foundations of first edition, this revision looks to increase user-friendliness and clinical applicability through improved figures and the addition of illustrative case studies.
Written by James R. Augustine, with decades of experience teaching and researching in the field, Human Neuroanatomy, authoritatively covers this fundamental area of study within the neurosciences
The uniqueness of the human brain can be appreciated by the fact that, in relation to other organ systems, it is the only organ system capable of studying itself. In spite of all of our studies and research on the human brain, we have barely begun to scratch the surface of what there is to be known about the brain and the complex role it plays in our day-to-day lives. In addition to this lack of knowledge and understanding of our own brain, there are more than 1000 disorders of the nervous system that present great challenges in their diagnosis and treatment.
The study of human neuroanatomy is an essential foundation on which students, residents, and researchers can begin to build their understanding of the basic and clinical aspects of the human brain. Human Neuroanatomy, Second Edition, is a comprehensive overview of the anatomy of the human brain and spinal cord that provides readers with an accessible entry point into this fascinating and complex discipline.
Human Neuroanatomy is written for advanced students yet also serves as a foundational reference for researchers and clinicians in the basic and clinical neurosciences. Building on the first edition, this fully-revised edition provides valuable updates in the field that reflect our most current understanding of the anatomy of the human brain and its impact on human behavior and neurological health. This edition includes new user-friendly features such as full color images, a companion website featuring downloadable figures, and numerous clinical correlations to better enhance the reader’s understanding and application of key concepts. Written by a researcher and instructor working in this field for decades, Human Neuroanatomy authoritatively covers this exciting and fundamental field of neuroscience.
