Top Customer Reviews
-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
- 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.
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 is very high yield especially for the boards! You will need to be able to identify locations on pictures when they discuss a vignette in a question. It is best to get price right away, so I would recommend purchasing this book during your Nueroanatomy course and keep it until you take step 1!

This book was not in the condition I thought it was (according to the description given). There were lots of highlights and writing that took up entire pages. Read morePublished on May 6, 2014 by Amanda Schmidt
I think this is a must-have book for anyone taking a neuroanatomy course. It shows sections of each part of the brain. Really helped me during my course.Published on February 2, 2014 by AmazonPrincess
This book is very helpful. This book has almost everything you need for Neuroanatomy! I strongly recommend this book to medical students.Published on October 2, 2013 by Stella
The book has many good drawings and pictures of real brain slices. I haven't used many neuroanatomy atlases so I can't say this is the best one yet, but so far so good.Published on July 30, 2013 by IceExpress
The newer addition is in full color, but I studied with a group and we often found black and white images easierPublished on June 18, 2013 by Maggie
