Preface

Very few organ systems, if any, present as fascinating an array
of structures and mechanisms as the human brain and spinal
cord. Furthermore, it is hard to think of a clinical field that
does not encompass at least some aspect of the neurosciences,
from molecular and cellular neurobiology through motor,
sensory, and cognitive neuroscience, to human behavior and
even social interactions. It is the brain, in fact, that makes us
uniquely human. No surprise, then, that neuroscience has
emerged as one of the most exciting fields of research and now
occupies a central role as a substrate for clinical medicine.
One of the unique things about the nervous system is its
exquisite architecture. The nervous system contains more cell
types than any other organ or organ system, and its constituent
nerve cells-more than 1 00,000,000,000 of themand
an even larger number of supportive glial cells are
arranged in a complex but orderly, and functionally crucial,
way.




Many disease processes affect, in a direct or indirect way,
the nervous system. Thus, every clinician, and every basic scientist
with an interest in clinical disease, needs an understanding
of neuroanatomy. Stroke remains the most frequent cause
of death in most industrialized societies; mood disorders such
as depression affect more than 1 person in 10; and clinical
dysfunction of the nervous system occurs in 25% of patients
in most general hospital settings at some time during their
hospital stay. An understanding of neuroanatomy is crucial
not only for neurologists, neurosurgeons, and psychiatrists
but also for clinicians in all subspecialties, since patients of
every stripe will present situations that require an understanding
of the nervous system, its structure, and its function.
This book, now in its 27th edition, is designed as an
accessible, easy-to-remember synopsis of neuroanatomy and
its functional and clinical implications. Since many of us learn
and remember better when material is presented visually, t his
book is well illustrated not only with clinical material such as
brain scans and pathological specimens but also with hundreds
of diagrams and tables that are designed to be clear,
explicative, and memorable. This book is not meant to supplant
longer, comprehensive handbooks on neuroscience and
neuroanatomy. On the contrary, it has been designed to provide
a manageable and concise overview for busy medical students
and residents, as well as trainees in health-related fields
such as physical therapy; graduate students and postdoctoral
fellows with an interest in neuroanatomy and its functional
underpinnings; and clinicians in practice, for whom minutes
are precious…
