The Fifth edition finds the text of The Central Nervous System thoroughly updated and revised, better equipping students with essential information in the field of clinical neuroscience. This text, reviewed to reflect new information as well as understanding of student needs for criticalthinking, contains the systematic, in-depth coverage of topics of great clinical interest. This text seamlessly integrates data from all fields of neuroscience as well as clinical neurology and psychology. This textbook presents the functional properties of clinically-relevant disorders byincorporating data from molecular biology to clinical neurology.While most neurological textbooks are cobbled together by multiple authors on a variety of topics within the field, Dr. Brodal pulls together a cohesive and comprehensive guide to neuroscience. This book reflects Dr. Brodal's concise and easy-to-read style, encouraging reflection and criticalthinking in established facts and scientific conjecture. This is the perfect reference for medical, graduate, and undergraduate students alike.
Professor Per Brodal has more than 40 years experience with neuroanatomical research and teaching (medical students and other health professions). Extensive experience with postgraduate teaching with the aim of applying basic neuroscience to clinical problems (in neurology, psychiatry, rehabilitation, physiotherapy). Headed the develop...
