Neuroanatomy Through Clinical Cases, 2nd ed.

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2010 - Autumn


by Hal Blumenfeld, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of neurology, neurobiology, and neurosurgery (Sinauer Associates) This book uses more than 100 clinical cases to aid in teaching neuroanatomy through an interactive approach. Each chapter presents background material, including an overview of major neuroanatomical structures and pathways, and briefly discusses related disorders. Each chapter then presents clinical cases, including patient narratives and a description of deficits found on examination. Case presentations are followed by questions that challenge the reader to deduce the neuroanatomical location of the patient’s lesion and the diagnosis. The book also includes CT and MRI scans depicting the lesions.
