The First Textbook to Take an Integrative Approach to Neurological Diagnosis
This introductory, full-color text teaches students and practitioners how to combine neurological history and physical examination so they can localize pathologies within the nervous system and determine appropriate treatment. It provides a wealth of illustrations that emphasize the functioning nervous system, in addition to an invaluable DVD for further exploration and access to a state-of-the-art website with additional materials that are updated periodically.

Although written for a problem-based learning (PBL) curriculum, The Integrated Nervous System is an appropriate supplementary text for any clinically-based neuroscience course or an excellent reference book. The DVD contains all the illustrations in the text, animations of reflexes and neuronal pathways, additional case studies, worksheets for the clinical cases, and information on neural imaging. Suggested readings are in the form of journal articles listed at the end of each chapter. Also, an annotated bibliography, organized by topic and with a synopsis of each entry, is found at the back of the book. A helpful glossary is also included.
