Inhaltsangabe: Following the highly successful ?At A Glance? format, this book covers the entire neuroscience requirement of the pre?clinical medicine course in a logical series of double?page spreads. It recognises the interdisciplinary nature of neuroscience, and the need to integrate students? knowledge of anatomy, biochemistry, physiology and pharmacology. Examples of the physiological systems of the central nervous system and its diseases are viewed from the molecular through to the behavioural level. The text is logically divided into seven sections, starting with a general introduction entitled ?cellular neurosciences,? which covers the structure and function of the CNS at the microscopic level. The following sections cover cutaneous and visceral sensation; motor control and co?ordination of movement; the brainstem; and special senses. Higher functions (memory, mood and cognition), and injury and ageing (dementias) are dealt with in the final sections.
Rezension: "The book is divided into 47 ?chapters?. In each, a comprehensive series of annotated diagrams is given, identifying the key concepts of that section. These diagrams are clear and easy to follow. The text is extremely concise, with significant terms all lettered in bold."
The Gubernaculum, Melbourne University?s Medical Society Newsletter
"Rating ? ? ? ? ?. Excellent summaries, to the point, very good foundation upon which students can develop an interest in neuroscience. Ideal for pre?clinical students."
Cambridge Medicine, Addenbrookes Clinical Medical School
"Neuroscience at a Glance gives you just the right amount of information presented in a student?friendly format...There is also a free online companion to the book at www.medicalneuroscience.com containing glossaries and relevant further reading signposts which I found useful.
In my opinion, it gives the student everything needed to learn about and understand the working of the brain and spinal cord without bogging you down by over?complicating things."
Barts and the London Chronicle
"...describes with ease the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system in a fashion tailored for undergraduate learning. The user friendly layout allows the reader to identify the key information "at a glance" and draw upon the simple yet effective diagrams."
"If this book had been available when my colleagues and I were grappling with the intricacies of Neuroscience, I have no doubt it would have eased our way into the subject more smoothly. This is ideally suited to the pre?clinical student needing to get to grips with complicated subjects ? fast.......To quote from the English Philosopher, Francis Bacon: ?Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.? A place in the latter category is certainly commanded by ?Neuroscience at a Glance? ! Guy?s Gazette/2000
