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.
