Neuroscience is a comprehensive textbook created primarily for medical and premedical students. In a single concise and approachable volume, the text guides students through the challenges and excitement of this rapidly changing field. The length and accessibility of the writing are a successful combination that works equally well for medical students or for undergraduate neuroscience courses in which many of the students are premeds. Being both comprehensive and authoritative, the book is also appropriate for graduate and professional use. Key features of the Third Edition include:
* Text boxes, new and revised, that highlight topics of special interest relevant to the chapter topics; these include discussions of the major neurological diseases, research methods, and the relevant animal models
* Additional neuroanatomical content, including two appendices: (1) The Brainstem and Cranial Nerves, and (2) Vascular Supply, the Meninges, and Ventricles
* Sylvius for Neuroscience: Visual Glossary of Human Neuroanatomy (CD included with every copy) is an interactive reference guide to the human nervous system. This new version of the popular teaching aid features textbook-specific organization and an enhanced interface.
* Revised and expanded full-color art
