This books helped a ton and I did very well.

The best part is after all the great images there is a section on clinical correlations.

I'd never had neuroanatomy before med school and I found it really helpful.

Haines Atlas has some strong points and some weak points. If the option was given, I would have given it 3.5 stars because it probably is above the average when it comes to atlases and I have not used a different atlas to compare it to.

Strong points:
-The real images are great (CTs and MRIs).
-Cross sections and coronal sections are also well done.
-USMLE style questions at the end of the book are great for medical students (such as myself) and helped me do very will on the NBME Neuroscience shelf exam.
- Online version is a great tool

Weak points:
- As a text, this atlas is VERY confusing.
- Although the diagrams are decent, the color scheme is not explained very well and they use a lot of abbreviations that aren't intuitive, constantly need to be checked, and often times differ from one diagram to the other

This atlas would be best used with a different textbook (I personally recommend Basic Clinical Neuroscience by Young, Young, and Tolbert).

Also, if you are a medical student, combine the two books above with the Pre-test for Neurosciences by Allan Siegel for review of NBME shelf exam and USMLE step 1 exam.

The 7th edition has inexplicably omitted most of the gross dissections of the previous editions!

This book is quite distinct from other books we used for neurology.
Many of the images from this book are not schematics; rather, it uses real MRI or histological sections.
In addition, it has some very good schematic diagrams as well.

I found the coronal and horizontal sections to be especially useful, because they come with the real images + real images schematized with lines.

They also provide an online website code in the book, which allows you to look at everything in the book on the website.
This is especially useful for the sake of compiling notes on your computer... I would imagine that professors teaching neuroanatomy would find these images very useful as well.

This book helped me out so much in my neurobiology class. I would definitely suggest it as a great reference for anyone taking an upper level neuro class who needs great pictures and drawings of the "tracts."

Great pictures, very good source for learning neuroanatomy. The online resource is extremely useful since you can quiz yourself to make sure you're learning all the structures.

Incredible! this text has it all. Diagrams, real images of CT, MRI, and others, and text to explain what you are looking at. Perfect.The best part is after all the great images there is a section on clinical correlations. We can't all remember everything, so we need books like this to have a reference.

This atlas is great. I found it super useful in our neuro block. I'd never had neuroanatomy before med school and I found it really helpful. Are you going to be able to teach yourself all of the neuroanatomy with this only-of course not, you don't only use Netter's to learn general anatomy either (at least I can't). You need another text too BUT this book is great and really helps you master a lot of the anatomy.

Format: Paperback
This is probably the best neuroanatomy atlas for med students, but the tracts are very confusing and hard to follow. This is what my professors used during lectures and sometimes on exams, so it was invaluable to me. I think Neuroanatomy through Clinical Cases had much better drawings of the tracts.
