Bridging the gap between the peripheral and central nervous systems, the second edition ofNeuroanatomical Basis of Clinical Neurologyenriches understanding of neurological conditions through a conceptual approach to neuronal circuitry. The book retains the basic outline of contents from the first edition, integrating structural organization with pertinent clinical disorders, while reflecting the substantial growth and ever-changing information in neuroscience

After an introduction to the developmental and cellular aspects of the nervous system, the book discusses in depth the morphology and internal organization of the central nervous system. It examines the somatic and autonomic components of the peripheral nervous system, emphasizing nerve entrapments and neuropathies. The author describes various dysfunctions by demonstrating the neuronal interconnectivity between higher and lower autonomic centers and the mediation of visceral reflexes.

TheSecond Editionincorporates and highlights common and relevant clinical conditions. Topics include:

  • Various forms of cortical dysfunctions, such as seizures, disconnection syndrome, coma, and dementia
  • The role of prefrontal cortex in behavior and attention, introducing the topic of autism
  • Up-to-date information on the auditory, vestibular, gustatory, and limbic systems
  • The neurochemistry of the limbic system, memory and associated disorders, and the structural and neuronal circuitry of the hippocampal gyrus
  • Structural organization and associated pathways of the extrapyramidal system, demonstrating the neurochemical basis of movement disorders

This new edition skillfully integrates over a decade of discovery in neuroscience since the publication of the first edition, and introduces deepened insights into the neuronal synaptic connectivity and the mechanisms that underlie neurologic disorders. The book remains an essential source of information for medical and allied health students, practitioners of neurology, and students of neuroscience.

Orhan Arslan, Ph.D., DVM, is Professor and Director of the Advanced Neuroanatomy at the Department of Pathology and Cell Biology at University of South Florida College of Medicine, in Tampa..

Editorial Reviews

"Dr. Arslan has created a valuable tool for the medical education of students and resident physicians in the neurosciences."¿Neurosurgery "Beautiful descriptions with wonderful drawings provide clinically relevant material complemented by sophisticated understanding of the underlying anatomy. Of particular value are boxed paragraphs that provide pathological correlates commonly observed by clinicians. If you are a medical student or a neuroscience graduate student, the book will assist you in developing a love of human anatomy, and if you are a clinician, it is a good resource to aid in studying for a re-certification." ¿Henry J. Kaminski, MD, George Washington University "¿ an impressive, detailed, and documented work of scholarship that is especially well organized and presented, making it very highly recommended for academic library reference collections and as a textbook for neuroscience curriculums."¿Andy Jordan in Midwest Book Review
