Clearly written and highly illustrated, this new, greatly expanded fourth edition approaches neuroanatomy from the clinical perspective, emphasizing what needs to be known in order to make effective clinical decisions. Throughout the text, clinical boxes reinforce the authors' commitment to preparing students for clinical practice. In this new edition, each chapter has been rewritten, all illustrations are new, and the book is full-color throughout.

  • clear account of neuroanatomy, written from the clinical point of view
  • completely rewritten and redesigned - new (larger) page size, all new artwork, attractive 4-colour layout - to appeal to even the most reluctant of students faced with the sometimes daunting task of learning neuroanatomy
  • highly illustrated with line drawings and clinical photos - all in full colour
  • core information boxes included, which distil the contents for easy recall
  • written by a clinician/anatomist with wide experience of what is significant and must be understood in neuroanatomy
  • colour is used in the text, to aid navigation
  • Also covers some neuroscience background - an extra selling point over competitors
  • this is a book that students love because of the focus on clinical background information - and they recommend it to each other
  • a truly international Panel of Consultants from major centres all over the world
  • illustrations: many more than previously, and for the first time in full colour
  • all new line drawings
  • full colour photos of MRI/PET scans
  • more x-rays
  • text updated and expanded
  • re-designed with bold and imaginative new page layout
  • all illustrations available on fleshandbones.com
  • the various controls involved in movement have been substantially expanded for the new edition - this should be of particular interest to physical therapists
  • psychology and psychiatry are now much stronger - thanks to the information provided by PET - so there is lots of 'human interest' material on phobias, panic attacks etc.
  • "synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

    About the Author:

    Turlough FitzGerald is Emeritus Professor of Anatomy at the National
    University of Ireland in Galway. He was previously Associate Professor of
    Anatomy at the University of Washington medical school in Seattle and at St.
    Louis University medical school in Missouri. He was also Lecturer in Anatomy at St Thomas's Hospital medical school in London and at NUI medical school in Cork, Ireland.

    He spent 17 years on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Anatomy.
    Membership of ASME (Association for Study of Medical Education) fostered his
    interest in undergraduate medical education. His main research interest has
    been the innervation of muscle and skin. For relaxation, he busies himself in
    his one-acre garden, where he holds Open Days for charity each July.

    Jean Folan-Curran is Turlough's successor to the Anatomy chair at NUI
    Galway. Prior to taking the Chair, Jean worked at the Karolinska Institutet
    in Stockholm, at the University of Heidelberg medical school and at the
    University of Oregon medical school. Her research interests are the autonomic
    nervous system and visceral afferents. Her favourite outdoor activity for many
    years has been athletics, including competing in triathlons. Jean was the
    first Irish woman to run an official marathon!
