Summary

The explosion of new information in recent years has challenged instructors of neuroscience to synthesize a diverse range of topics and present them in a way that's comprehensible to students. This first edition ofEssential Neurosciencepresents a solution, delivering the right level of detail and scope of information for medical students and residents.Readers are presented with all of the basic neuroscience topics, but with a focus on the essential concepts and facts intrinsic to the practice of medicine. The result is a refreshing text that makes learning the subject matter simple yet meaningful.The authors begin with the analysis of a single neuron, and then relate how neurons communicate with each other. Discussions progress to the anatomy of the spinal cord and brain, followed by a detailed examination of the sensory, motor, and integrative systems. This building-block approach helps students master the subject material and prepare for national board examinations.Benefit from these valuable features: Chapter-opening Learning Objectives help students focus on the most important information to take away from each chapter. Summary tables and outlines organize chapter material into a high-yield format to help students review the material effectively. Clinical scenarios in each chapter help students understand the clinical application of the concepts presented. End-of-chapter review questions (both USMLE-style and course review) help students prepare for course and board exams. Full-color art program includes over 400 illustrations. A detailed chapter on neurotransmitters and implications of their malfunctions in mental disorders reflects recent developments in the field. Chapter on Behavioral Disorders examines schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, and obsessive compulsion, all topics that are part of the USMLE. Chapter on Cranial Nerves offers material tested on the USMLE. Genetic abnormalities and malfunctions of the immune system are also discussed, where applicable. Basic neuroscience terms and concepts are defined in an extensive end-of-book Glossary.Essential Neuroscienceis an ideal resource for medical students, neurology residents, and students who specialize in associated biological sciences.
