About this book

Introduction

Ideal for beginning medical and graduate students in need of a comprehensive neuroscience resource, A Survey of Medical Neuroscience focuses on the function of the central nervous system and its relationship to virtually all other systems in the human body.
The text takes the same broad, interdisciplinary approach to the subject matter as is currently taken in first-year medical and graduate neuroscience courses. The text is a comprehensive integration of the other disciplines associated with neuroscience - anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, biochemistry, and behavioral science - that can comfortably be read in a short amount of time.
Concepts are illuminated by clear, two-color illustrations. Features appendices containing photographs of representative human brain sections.
