Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Neuroscience is a comprehensive textbook created primarily for medical and premedical students it emphasizes the structure of the nervous system, the correlation of structure and function, and the structure/function relationships particularly pertinent to the practice of medicine. Although not primarily about pathology, the book includes the basis of a variety of neurological disorders. It could serve equally well as a text for medical students or for undergraduate neuroscience courses in which many of the students are premeds. Being both comprehensive and authoritative, it is also appropriate for graduate and professional use. The new edition offers a host of new features including a new art program and a completely revised version of the popular teaching aid, Sylvius: Fundamentals of Human Neural Structure, an interactive CD ROM atlas of the human nervous system. Major changes to the new edition also include: Additional neuroanatomical content, including two appendices: (1) The Brainstem and Cranial Nerves and (2) Vascular Supply, Meninges and Ventricles. Updated and new boxes on neurological and psychiatric diseases. MARKET 1: Courses on Neuroscience within Life Sciences departm
