    Greenfield's is the world’s leading neuropathology reference. It provides a comprehensive account of the pathological findings in neurological disease, their biological basis, and their clinical manifestations. The two volume work  provides a remarkable text which is clear, comprehensive and precise with exceptional illustrations. This is a tried and tested reference for scientists, clinicians, researchers, and students who wish to learn more about neurological disease.

    Volume one is available as a single purchase as well as within the set, and it covers General Pathology of the Nervous System, Cerebrovascular Disorders, Developmental Neuropathology and Metabolic Disorders, Epilepsy, Neuroinflammatory Disorders, and Neurodegenerative Disorders.

    The tenth edition features fully updated sections throughout. Global coverage from an international team of Editors and contributors. Fully downloadable and easily used e-version included.
