The third edition of Per Brodal's book is beautifully produced and continues the traditions of excellence set up by the four editions of the same name published by his father Alf Brodal between 1949 and 1982. The book is clearly and concisely written and manages not to lose the reader in anatomical detail, while explaining physiological mechanisms. The diagrams are well thought out and text boxes are used to highlight physiological, pharmacological or anatomical details, when required, without perturbing the flow of the main text.
The book is aimed at medical students and successfully links basic and clinical science together. It includes new chapters on the control of eye movements and the vestibular system (entitled the sense of equilibrium) and all the remaining chapters have been thoroughly revised and updated to include data from molecular biology to clinical psychology. This makes the book refreshingly easy to read and I would recommend it as an informative text for medical students with interests in the CNS.

This was the recommended textbook for my Neuroanatomy class, so I bought it. Turns out, it didn't help very much. Now, in general I am more of a notes person than a textbook person, but with this book I used it more seldomly than usual. For some reason, the text doesn't speak to me as well as other books, and the figures aren't as well-drawn as other books. I ended up buying Neuroscience: Exploring the Brain by Mark F. Bear. It has better writing, and clearer diagrams.
