Neuroanatomy

Couverture
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2008 - 383 pages

Designed primarily for medical and dental students preparing for the USMLE Step 1 and other examinations, this book presents the essentials of human neuroanatomy in a succinct outline format with abundant illustrations. Over 600 USMLE-style questions with complete answers and explanations are included, some at the end of each chapter and some in an end-of-book Comprehensive Examination.

This edition uses color to delineate neuroanatomical pathways and highlight clinical correlations. New clinical MRI and MRA images have been added. Questions follow the clinical vignette-based format of the current USMLE.

A companion Website on thePoint offers instant access to the complete, fully searchable text and all questions from the book.
