The primary objective of this text is to help medical and dental students gain a firm grounding in the fundamentals of neuroanatomy. The course, relations and distribution of the cranial nerves and most spinal nerves are included for integration between neuroanatomy and gross anatomy. Dental students should find descriptions of the trigeminal and facial nerves, which the book covers in some depth, particularly relevant. Extensive photographs and illustrations accompany the text.

With this seventh edition, Noback’s Human Nervous System: Structure and Function continues to combine clear prose with exceptional original illustrations that provide a concise lucid depiction of the human nervous system. The book incorporates recent advances in neurobiology and molecular biology. Several chapters have been substantially revised. These include Development and Growth, Blood Circulation and Imaging, Cranial Nerves and Chemical Senses, Auditory and Vestibular Systems, Visual System, and Cerebral Cortex. Topics such as neural regeneration, plasticity and brain imaging are discussed. Each edition of The Human Nervous System has featured a set of outstanding illustrations drawn by premier medical artist Robert J. Demarest. Many of the figures from past editions have been modified and/or enhanced by the addition of color, which provides a more detailed visualization of the nervous system. Highly praised in its earlier versions, this new edition offers medical, dental, allied health science and psychology students a readily understandable and organized view of the bewilderingly complex awe-inspiring human nervous system. Its explanatory power and visual insight make this book an indispensable source of quick understanding that readers will consult gratefully again and again.

This classic well-illustrated textbook simplifies neuroscience content to focus coverage on the essentials and helps students learn important neuroanatomical facts and definitions. Among its many distinctions are its organization by region and then pathways into and out of the nervous system, which permits students an integrated view of the anatomy and physiology; level of treatment suited to increasingly shorter neuroanatomy course hours for medical and allied health students; and the author's succinct writing style.

The Atlas of the Cellular Structure of the Human Nervous System presents full-color and black-and-white photographs of all the main areas of the brain--the cranial nerves, the ganglia, and peripheral nerves--viewed mainly by phase-contrast microscopy. In using unfixed tissue, shrinkage and distortion have been minimized; therefore, the structures illustrated are as identical as possible to those in intact living humans. Key Features * Includes photographs of the neuroglia, the white matter, droplet fibers, and the fine structure of the nucleolus * Uses teased tissue and hand-dissected cells mainly from recent human post-mortem specimens--other mammalian tissue was substituted occasionally * In some instances, scanning differential interference microscopy, Hoffman modulation contrast, and polarizing microscopy have been used * Features photographs of cells identified by fluorescent monoclonal antibody studies

It is now well known that the functional organisation of the cerebral cortex is plastic and that changes in organisation occur throughout life in response to normal and abnormal experience. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive and painless technique that has opened up completely new and fascinating avenues to study neural plasticity. First, TMS can be used to detect changes in excitability or connectivity of the stimulated cortex which may have occurred through processes such as learning or recovery from a lesion. Second, repeated TMS by itself can induce changes in excitability and connectivity of the stimulated cortex which may be used therapeutically in neurological and psychiatric disease. Third, TMS can induce short-lasting 'virtual lesions', which may directly test the functional relevance of brain plasticity. Current knowledge of all these exciting possibilities is brought together in this book, written by the world's leading experts in the field. The book is an essential compendium on plasticity of the human brain for clinical neurophysiologists, neurologists, psychiatrists and neuroscientists.

Receptors in the Human Nervous System is a synthesis of the results of receptor mapping by leaders in the field. In addition to a comprehensive discussion of the distribution and possible interactions of the receptors of different neuroactive substances, this book also contains an abundance of pictorial representations of receptor distributions. High-quality photographs of one receptor are often juxtaposed with photographs of the distribution of a different receptor or receptor subtype for the consideration of possible interactions between different systems. The book surveys the distribution of receptor subtypes for the classical monoamine transmitters (acetylcholine, adrenaline, noradrenaline and serotonin) as well as the distribution of receptors for the excitatory and inhibitory amino acids, (glutamate, GABA and benzodiazepines) as well as the opioid peptides, angiotensen and other neuropeptides. The distribution of multiple types of serotonin receptors is given in detail, and the codistribution of receptors in the cortex is discussed. The book is directed toward researchers in the field of chemical neuroanatomy, as well as pharmacologists, neurophysiologists, and neuroscientists.

Viral infections of the nervous system are important because they are associated with high morbidity and mortality. A variety of pathogenetic mechanisms are involved in these infections and an understanding of the pathogenesis is essential in understanding the diagnostic and clinical management aspects of the disease. Specialized investigations are often necessary for definitive diagnosis, although a presumptive diagnosis should often be suspected on the basis of the clinical features. Many of the chapters in this book are written by neurologists who are experts in basic science research of their topic in addition to active clinical practice in their specialty.

For over thirty years The Human Nervous System has offered a concise, well-written text on neuroanatomy for both medical and allied health students. This successful title is organized into four major parts: cellular aspects of the nervous system, regional anatomy of the brain and spinal cord, sensory and motor systems, and blood supply. The Eighth Edition has been simplified to enhance coverage of the essentials and help students learn important facts and definitions. A CD-ROM at the back of the book includes multiple-choice and short-answer questions for review, clinical cases, an expanded glossary, expanded reading lists, and additional illustrations and diagrams.

Although today differential psychology embraces a large and ever-increasing body of facts, conclusions, and practical recommendations which have wide applicability, a number of critical problems are still unresolved or only partly resolved. One of the most important of these is the relationship between individual variations in human behavior and in dividual features of a range of correlated physiological functions. Adequate concepts exist for understanding individual variations in some physiological functions underlying specific aspects (speed, tempo, rhythm, amplitude) of the flow of psychical activity. This fact alone is of considerable importance, especially when we consider that such dynamic features can-and sometimes do in a fundamental way-modulate psychological functioning. If we consider, in addition, that in certain circumstances these variables have a direct and sometimes decisive effect on the final behavioral outcome, it seems obvious that the parameters of physiologically active systems determine a number of important features of complex human behavior. According to Pavlov, the most important of these is that system com prising central nervous system properties, which determine the generation of excitatory and inhibitory processes in the structures of the central nervous system. The concept of basic nervous system properties as leading parameters of the psychophysiological organization of individuality seems to be one of the outstanding achievements of the Pavlovian school. It provided the framework within which investigators could attempt to determine ex perimentally individual features of behavior and reactivity.
