NETTER - NEURO ATLAS
This atlas combines the precision and beauty of 325 Netter and Netter-style illustrations with updated information to reflect our growing understanding of the many regions and systems of the brain, spinal cord, and periphery. Concise neuroscience atlas using Netter illustrations to highlight key neuroanatomical concepts and clinical correlations. The single best source of illustrations of the nervous system, with comprehensive up-to-date information in a succinct and useful format, reflecting current understanding of the nervous system.
Provides an overview of the basic features of the spinal cord, brain, and peripheral nervous system, the vasculature, meninges and cerebrospinal fluid, and basic development.
Uses a regional organization of the peripheral nervous system, spinal cord, brain stem and cerebellum, and forebrain.
Offers a systemic organization of the sensory motor systems, motor systems (including cerebellum and basal ganglia), and limbic/hypothalmic/autonomic systems.
Format of color plate with legend -- legends included on the same page as the illustrations to prevent the need for turning pages back and forth. Several tightly organized tables included to eliminate the need for long or detailed figure descriptions or text. These tables are useful aides to student learning. Schematic cross-sectional brain stem anatomy, and side-by-side comparisons of horizonal sections, CTs and MRs, eliminate the need for an additional purchase of a detailed neuroanatomy atlas. Netter's well-recognized and aesthetically pleasing neurosciences illustrations updated to reflect today's science.
Univ. of California, Irvine. Atlas featuring the late Dr. Frank Netter's illustrations depicting both regional and systemic neuroscience. Includes updated information and new illustrations reflecting the growing understanding of the brain and spinal cord. Features new cross-sections through the spinal cord and the brain stem.
