This carefully-designed textbook offers a brand-new approach to learning neuroanatomy for medical students and newly-qualified doctors, particularly those considering a career in neurology and neurosurgery. Promoting active learning and taking inspiration from other popular case-based formats, readers are encouraged to overcome their inherent ‘neurophobia’. The accessible text and practical examples, unencumbered by esoteric minutiae, support students and trainees in developing the necessary skills that will be essential in later clinical practice.
Developed specifically in response to student feedback, the authors have succeeded in creating a novel, brief, and high-yield primer that offers a unique approach to mastering this challenging discipline. Case Closed! Neuroanatomy not only teaches students how to localize, but also guides them to solve successfully the problems that will reappear in their exams and in the clinic.
