Preface




MY NEUROANATOMY MENTOR, the late
Dr. William DeMyer, often remarked, “if
you can’t draw it, you don’t know it.” His
teaching method was straightforward: to learn the
structures and fiber pathways of the nervous system,
draw and re-draw them, and when you think you
know them well, draw them some more. This book
tries to emulate his approach. It is written in an
instructive rather than a didactic manner so that we
use the material to learn it.




The analogy is simple: if you want to become a
table expert, put one together. Invariably, you will
screw the legs on backwards and hammer on the top
upside down first, but how else will you learn about
the washers and wing-nuts, bolts and fillets that fasten
one together? How else will you understand what
makes a table strong or learn its weak points and the
ways to improve upon one? Reading about tables will
never teach you: you have to put one together,
yourself.




With this book, we will trace nerve pathways down
our limbs, demonstrate eye movements and vestibular
directionality with our hands, palpate sensory
distributions and muscle patterns across our face and
body, imagine cognitive sensory deficits, and
rigorously draw and re-draw the structures and
pathways of the nervous system until they become
second nature…
