Summary: When a patient presents with a neurological problem, there is one question that must be answered, "Where is the lesion located?" This breakthrough text - Basic Clinical Neuroanatomy - will prepare you to answer that question with confidence and success. Drs. Young and Young emphasize clinically important pathways. Their book features numerous three-dimensional illustrations of the brain and spinal cord, which enhance visualization of anatomical relationships needed to localize lesions. The authors' clear, concise, yet comprehensive, focus promotes learning.
