Description

Each title in the new Integrated series focuses on the core knowledge in a specific basic science discipline, while linking that information to related concepts from other disciplines. Case-based questions at the end of each chapter enable you to gauge your mastery of the material, and a color-coded format allows you to quickly find the specific guidance you need. Bonus STUDENT CONSULT access is included! These concise and user-friendly references provide crucial guidance for the early years of medical training, as well as for exam preparation.
  • Includes case-based questions at the end of each chapter
  • Features a colour-coded format to facilitate quick reference and promote effective retention
  • Offers access to STUDENT CONSULT! At www.studentconsult.com, you'll find an interactive community center with a wealth of additional resources!

Preface
Authors often try to regale potential readers with accounts of the importance of their disciplines, but the nervous system truly is of unique importance. Thomas Edison once commented that “[T]he chief function of the body is to carry the brain around,” alluding to the critical role of the nervous system in mental experience. Joints, kidneys, and even hearts can be bypassed or replaced without altering a person in fundamental ways, but the essence of a person is lost when activity of the nervous system ceases. This has made the nervous system a source of endless fascination for me for decades, fanned by the explosive growth in recent years of knowledge of its molecular workings. I hope I have been able to convey some of the fascination in this book.
The book is meant to be an overview of those aspects of the nervous system, particularly the central nervous system, most germane to students of the health sciences. I tried to develop topics systematically, with each chapter building on those preceding it. Material from multiple chapters is integrated in a series of clinically based questions at the end of the book.
Despite its unique role, the nervous system obviously collaborates in a functional sense with the rest of the body. These interdependencies are underscored by the integration boxes distributed throughout the book, pointing to related topics in other books of the series.
This overview of the structure and function of the nervous system would never have come about without the help of many friends and colleagues, to whom I owe a great debt of gratitude. Thanks to Ed French, Ted Glattke, Chris Leadem, Nate McMullen, Naomi Rance, Scott Sherman, Cristian Stefan, Marc Tischler, Todd Vanderah, and Steve Wright for their helpful suggestions on the content of the book and comments on the manuscript. Thanks to Ray Carmody and Elena Plante for the images in Chapter 8 . Thanks to Jay Angevine for the whole-brain section used in Figure 1-4 and for use of the sections that are the basis for the drawings in many other figures. Thanks to my students for helping me figure out what works and what doesn’t. Thanks to Andy Hall and others at Elsevier for their patience and support. My love and special thanks to Kathy, who came back into my life and held it together throughout the writing of this book.
