This is a real solid textbook. It was more or less an extension of what you would learn in neuroanatomy in first year of medical school. It is completely overkill in some regards if that is why you are using it, but as a 4th year going into neurology, I found it was an extremely helpful review with excellent images on every page. My neuroanatomy desperately needed a book like this to get the ball rolling, given that neurologists spend a substantial amount of time looking at head imaging. For those interested, this is not a clinical textbook. There is very little information provided on diseases and more or less no information with regards to differential diagnoses and treatment. So if you choose to purchase this book, just understand that this is more like first year medical school than third year clinical rotations. This is a basic science textbook.

Another book written by an individual with incredible knowledge, but limited in his ability to convey it. Confusing best describes the book. The graphics are absolutely muddled, and though they are intended to illustrate pathways, they succeed only in conveying the complicated nature of the nervous system, without helping to make sense of it. The text itself is confusing, and neither sentence structure nor chapter layout aid this. Now, speaking only as a medical student, this may differ for doctoral students, much of the text is unnecessary specifics about what types of neurons are in every portion, and what all neurotransmitters they use. Of course some of that we need to know, but it definitely goes into detail far beyond what is needed, and in doing so, makes the clouds the important information. If you are required to use this book, I recommend at least using supplementary books such as Blumenfeld, if not ignoring the majority of Haines reading all together. If you are not required to use it, then don't.

We used this book for my Neuroscience/Neuroanatomy course during the first year. I thought the content was well organized and went in an order that made sense as far as learning goes. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone taking a neuroscience/neuroanatomy course.

I teach neroanatomy in med school and I'm sure this is the best text to do it

Kindle edition has no page numbers which makes it worthless when the professor gives assigned pages for their tests. Stick with hard copy

Book is almost as confusing as my instructor. It looks like it has good information in it, but it's way above my head and I'm in grad school. If you like this stuff, it might actually be a good book, but it's not too interesting to me.
