Review

"This is an excellent purchase for general medical libraries and neuroscience departments." - Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

From the Back Cover

Now in its sixth best-selling edition, The Human Nervous System: Structure and Function continues to combine clear prose with high-quality tailor-made medical illustrations to achieve for neuroscientists and medical students a succinct explanation of the fundamental principles behind the organization, structure, and function of the human nervous system. The distinguished authors take advantage of the many recent advances in neurobiology and molecular biology to include new coverage of such critical discoveries as stem cells, apoptosis, the role of the amygdala in stress, and the significance of dendritic spines. Among the core topics given expanded treatments are pain and pain pathways, the visual system, development and growth of the nervous system, the chemical senses of smell and taste, and the limbic system. There is also fresh material on neuronal stem cells, the auditory and vestibular systems, neurotransmitters as the chemical messengers of certain brain circuits, the cerebellum, and lesions of the spinal nerves, spinal cord, and brainstem. Award-winning medical illustrator Robert J. Demarest has created new and revised legacy illustrations in cooperation with his neuroscientist coauthors, adding 24 figures to the previous 149. His illustrations are designed to extract and visually highlight the essence of the neuroanatomical features embedded in the complexities of the nervous system, thereby allowing the reader to match the structures of the brain with conventional X-ray pictures, and CT, MRI, and PET scans.
Highly praised and widely appreciated in its earlier versions, this new 6th edition of The Human Nervous System: Structure and Function incorporates all the latest neuroanatomical discoveries and offers medical students and interested neuroscientists a readily understandable and awe-inspiring view of the organization of the human nervous system. Its explanatory power and visual insight make this book an indispensable source of quick understanding that readers will consult gratefully again and again.

By magellan HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on January 16, 2008
Format: Hardcover
I used the first edition of this text many years ago in grad school. I thought it was the best I had ever seen, and I had looked at many of the texts available at the time. It combined clear, well written text with outstanding illustrations by Demarest, whose specialty was neurological illustrations and drawings, if I remember correctly. Neuroanatomy can be a technical and difficult area, but Noback and Demarest's book made the subject, if not actually enjoyable, then far more approachable and accessible. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, after having had to slog through many less readable texts as a grad and undergrad. I also found it very thorough and also up to date in terms of the current research. I used to it study for my neuroanatomy comprehensive exam rather than the text we were assigned at the time (which I don't even remember the title of at this point), and I'm sure I did better than I would have had their great text not been available.

This reference has been a widely used university text introducing the human nervous system. Chapters on neurophysiology and neurodevelopment are followed by a consideration of sensory and motor functionality, and examination of components of the central nervous system.
