About the Author

Hal Blumenfeld is Professor in the Departments of Neurology, Neurobiology, and Neurosurgery at Yale University School of Medicine. He has taught neuroanatomy at Harvard, Yale, and Columbia Universities using the approach of Neuroanatomy through Clinical Cases, which the students greeted with highly favorable feedback. He recently received the prestigious Francis Gilman Blake Award, as the most outstanding teacher of medical sciences at the Yale School of Medicine, and the Dreifuss-Penry Epilepsy Research Award from the American Academy of Neurology. He has also been awarded several major grants (from the National Institutes of Health, and private foundations) to pursue his research, which focuses on epilepsy as a model system for investigating consciousness. Current projects include neuroimaging, neurophysiology, and behavioral experiments in animal models of epilepsy, and direct application to human patients. His clinical training included an internship in Internal Medicine at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, a residency in Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital, and a fellowship in Epilepsy at Yale University School of Medicine. He studied Bioelectrical Engineering at Harvard University, then earned a Ph.D. (in Physiology and Cellular Biophysics) as well as his M.D. at Columbia University.

One often wonders if it is worth buying a second edition of any textbook let alone a neuroanatomy textbook, upon receiving the second edition of Neuroanatomy through Clinical Cases by Hal Blumenfeld, MD, PhD the answer is an enthusiastic YES! Students of neuroanatomy often complain about the dryness of the subject and the difficulties they encounter when trying to memorize all the terms, areas and connections. This book provides excellent solutions to both of these issues. The book is organized in a standard fashion around holistic systems (eg. Chapter 7: Somatosensory Pathways, Chapter 11: Visual System) and where appropriate anatomical areas (eg. Chapter 15: Cerebellum), but embedded within each chapter are helpful mnemonics too help the student master the necessary material.

In order to bring the material to life Dr. Blumenfeld has collected an enormous (expanded since the first edition) amount of relevant clinical cases that he encountered while serving as Neurologist at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital and Yale New Haven Hospital. These real world cases (>100 are detailed) and the associated clinical documentation (MRI's, CT scans, blood work....) provide immediate clinical relevance for the anatomy covered in each chapter. Traditionally these two concepts (anatomy and clinical correlations) are often treated as almost distinct topics and it is refreshing to see them treated in parallel in such a comprehensive manner. The clinical cases reinforce the need to understand the underlying anatomy and for each case questions are asked that help direct the reader to determining the site of the lesion/disorder.

I loved this book! During my first year of medical school, neuroanatomy was a beast. I couldn't get the basics down, as all the other books, including many review books, required an almost unattainable baseline of knowledge. I got fed up, and read this book cover to cover in two weeks. I was completely prepared for my exam, and suddenly, all of the other books made sense.

It is the pictures and excellent clinical correlations that make this book come alive. If you school tests with "board style questions" i.e. mini clinical vignettes as a question, this book is your new best friend for your neuro class. It's expensive, but worth it. Buy this first, and then might I recommend High Yield Neuroanatomy as your review guide.

I AM A NEUROLOGIST AND CAN NOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THIS BOOK. IT IS EASY TO READ AND UNDERSTANDING NEUOANATOMY MAKES MY WORK MORE FUN. I AM A BETTER DOCTOR AFTER READING THIS BOOK. I RECOMMEND IT FOR NEUROLOGY RESIDENTS AND NEUROLOGISTS. GREAT BOOK. ONE OF THE BEST I'VE EVER READ.

I'm a medical student in my first year, taking Medical Neuroscience. In our course we go through the pathways described in the Blumberg book as well as the molecular and cellular neuroscience behind them. I find this book to be incredibly good at explaining the anatomy of the main pathways and excellent to understand the neurological exam (although i would use an atlas to supplement when it comes to observing a structure change size/shape from, say, the caudal medulla to the rostral midbrain). What I was missing was the smaller details, sub-structural neuroscience, something that this book does not claim to be. For this I went to Nolte and Purves (I prefer the latter).

My point being, some reviewers made it seem like this was the end all to use in medical education, but there is a part of what we are taught that is not within the scope of this book. I would really recommend getting this book and Dale Purves' Neuroscience if you are a student that really enjoys well written textbooks with clear explanations of the hows and whys.

I bought this book at the beginning of the term and didn't open it until I got desperate halfway through.

Other than the drugs, cancer, and histology&pathology sections of the course, this book had everything. It is laid out better, it is integrated from clinical presentation, to exam, imaging, diagnosis and discussion.

I read the book from cover to cover, and went from failing miserably to passing with better than class average. If you read the book as it is laid out, you will build on the concepts and it will introduce key points at relevant times. By the end, you will be able to think through the anatomy instead of trying to just remember a bunch of factoids.

The imaging in the book is amazing and well explained, and the cases are real. The language is very descriptive, and the illustrations and figures are great. The cranial nerves and blood supply chapters are highlights.

It shouldn't be your ONLY Neuro book, but you will use it every day even after reading it.

If I ever see Dr. Blumenfeld, I'm going to hug his leg like a little child.

This book is clearly the best teaching text on neuroanatomy. Teaching through cases is a time-honored method and helps the material to sink in to the student. The figures and photos make this complex subject easy to understand. The text is up to date scientifically. It is also a good reference tool for neurolgists. I can't recommend this any higher.
