This essential introductory textbook thoroughly describes neural structure and function. In addition to covering all core neuroanatomy and neurophysiology concepts, it incorporates clinical content that highlights real-world applications for treating clinical neurologic disorders. Full-color illustrations and computer-generated, three-dimensional images of brain structures are fully integrated throughout the text. Known for its readability and consistent, easy-to-follow format, The Human Brain, 5th Edition, effectively unites neural, anatomical, and physiological principles and processes. New in the 5th Edition: More coverage of neurobiology helps clarify and illuminate function. More clinical content, including images that depict neurological disorders, demonstrates the practical applications of key concepts.
Expanded section on higher cortical function presents the most up-to-date information. New glossary of key terms familiarizes you with important vocabulary and makes the subject more accessible.
