The Human Brain in Dissection will significantly update the previous edition published in 1988. The last 20 years have sen a significant shift in the way that neuroanatomy is taught in both undergraduate and graduate neuroscience courses, as well as doctorate courses: not only has the time allocated for these courses been reduced, but the methodologies for teaching have become more focused and specific due to these time constraints. The Human Brain in Dissection, Third Edition will provide detailed features of the human brain with the above limitations in mind. 50 new plates will be added to the existing 123 in order to permit the student to see all salient structures and to visualize microscopic structures of the brain stem and spinal cord. Each chapter will cover a specific are of the human brain in such a way that each chapter can be taught in one two-hour neuroanatomy course. New to this edition is the inclusion of a section in each chapter on clinically relevant examples. Each chapter will also include a specific laboratory exercise. And finally, the author has included a question and answer section that is relevant to the USMLE, as as recommended readings, neither of which were included in the previous editions. This new edition of The Human Brain in Dissection will allow the student to: understand basic principles of cellular neuroscience; learn gross and microscopic anatomy of the central nervous system (Brain, brainstem, and spinal cord); relate the anatomy of central neural pathways to specific functional systems; be able to localize and name a CNS legion when presented with neurological symptoms, and appreciate higher cortical functions and how they relate to the practice of neurology. neuroscience
