1) Clearly written prose - Blumenfeld does a great job of writing things in a clear and concise way. You're expected to understand the terminology, but he makes sure not to bury sentences in neuro jargon. I had previous experiences where the sentence started in one place and before the end of it I was completely lost and bogged down by unfamiliar, 65 letter words. This stuff is obviously complicated, but this book does an excellent job of elucidating the concepts and structures.
2) Clinical cases - Blumenfeld backs up the explanations and normal paragraphs with clinical cases that highlight concepts from the chapter. This stuff is practical and useful. There are dozens of these cases throughout the book and each of them works really well to help teach you the material. It is really helpful to be able to apply the material to a real world scenario.
3) Pictures - There are loads of pictures in every chapter. He doesn't inundate you with useless diagrams either. Rather, he stays focused throughout on providing explanations that are not in standard paragraph form. Lecturers at my school copied and pasted directly from this book for our lecture slides.
Overall, this book is a great study tool. I highly recommend it.
You are introduced to a specific section of anatomy with EXCELLENT illustrations and explanations, and then immediately following, you are given a series of clinical cases. The cases are quite simply, stunning. Patient presentation, what clues from history and physical are IMPORTANT, and then correct diagnosis with treatment. Each case is packed with CLINICAL INFORMATION and CT's/MRI's for your review.
I loved the section on weakness. Illustrated and explained like I've never seen before. How to narrow down where the lesion can be found, why some areas are ruled out, common causes for the lesion, and a CLEAR ILLUSTRATION reinforcing the text. Brilliant.
This is easily the best neuroanatomy text and more than that, it's the best introduction to clinical NEUROLOGY.
If you are taking neuroanatomy, use this instead of your stupid text. Your peers will be amazed at your grasp of the info they are struggling with. If you are an intern before neuro residency, read this during your intern year. If you are a neuro resident, use this for reinforcing the underlying anatomy for the path you've seen during the day.
Thank you for writing this text. My only regret is that I found it after wasting so much time with other books!
I will hold on to this book and refer to it often in my clinical years. Fantastic! A must have.
I basically cannot say enough good things about this text. It is the current benchmark in this field.
