- We can order this
Continuing progress has been made in understanding the brain at the molecular, anatomic, and physiological levels in the years following the "Decade of the Brain," with the results providing insight into the underlying basis of many neurological disease processes. In Neuroscience in Medicine, Third Edition, a distinguished panel of basic and clinical investigators, noted for their teaching excellence, provide thoroughly updated and revised chapters to reflect these remarkable advances. Designed specifically for medical students and allied health professionals, this up-to-date edition alternates scientific and clinical chapters that explain the basic science underlying neurological processes and then relate that science to the understanding of neurological disorders and their treatment. These popular and now expanded "clinical correlations" cover, in detail, disorders of the spinal cord, neuronal migration, the autonomic nervous system, the limbic system, ocular motility, and the basal ganglia, as well as demyelinating disorders, stroke, dementia and abnormalities of cognition, congenital chromosomal and genetic abnormalities, Parkinson's disease, nerve trauma, peripheral neuropathy, aphasias, sleep disorders and myasthenia gravis. In addition to concise summaries of the most recent biochemical, physiological, anatomical, and behavioral advances, the chapters summarize current findings on neuronal gene expression and protein synthesis at the molecular level.
Authoritative and comprehensive, Neuroscience in Medicine, Third Edition provides a fully up-to-date and readily accessible guide to brain functions at the cellular and molecular level, as well as clearly demonstrating their emerging diagnostic and therapeutic importance.

From the reviews of the third edition:
"Written by American experts in their relevant research fields, the present book ... thus providing a board and timely overview of basic, applied and clinical neurosciences. ... Each chapter ends with a brief list of selected references, and an index of 42 pages ... . The revised edition ... provides not only an up-to-date and readily accessible guide to brain functions and their disorders, but also a highly informative overview of the current state of knowledge in neurosciences and their relevance to neurological disorders." (K. A. Jellinger, European Journal of Neurology, 2008)
"This is a much-needed update on the molecular aspects of neuroscience and its contribution to clinical medicine. ... The book is written primarily for medical and nursing students. ... This is a needed update on clinical neuroscience and a necessary acquisition for any neurosciences library. Students will find it a useful contribution to the field." (Celso Agner, Doody's Review service, January, 2009)
