Item description for Netter's Atlas of Human Neuroscience (Netter Basic Science) by David L. Felten...
This atlas combines the precision and beauty of 325 Netter and Netter-style illustrations with updated information to reflect our growing understanding of the many regions and systems of the brain, spinal cord, and periphery. Concise neuroscience atlas using Netter illustrations to highlight key neuroanatomical concepts and clinical correlations. The single best source of illustrations of the nervous system, with comprehensive up-to-date information in a succinct and useful format, reflecting current understanding of the nervous system.
Provides an overview of the basic features of the spinal cord, brain, and peripheral nervous system, the vasculature, meninges and cerebrospinal fluid, and basic development.
Uses a regional organization of the peripheral nervous system, spinal cord, brain stem and cerebellum, and forebrain.
Offers a systemic organization of the sensory motor systems, motor systems (including cerebellum and basal ganglia), and limbic/hypothalmic/autonomic systems.
Format of color plate with legend -- legends included on the same page as the illustrations to prevent the need for turning pages back and forth. Several tightly organized tables included to eliminate the need for long or detailed figure descriptions or text. These tables are useful aides to student learning. Schematic cross-sectional brain stem anatomy, and side-by-side comparisons of horizonal sections, CTs and MRs, eliminate the need for an additional purchase of a detailed neuroanatomy atlas. Netter's well-recognized and aesthetically pleasing neurosciences illustrations updated to reflect today's science.

Excellent Guide for the Serious Student Oct 7, 2007
Although I have no substantial formal education in biology or medicine, I have had a keen interest in human neuroscience for the past fifteen years or so. During that time, I have read perhaps thirty books, ranging from books intended for a wide audience to textbooks used in medical schools. Probably the greatest difficulty for me has been remembering the anatomy. I would find, for example, a reference to the cingulate cortex, which had been defined earlier in a book, and I would have to look up the name in the index, go to the page where it was defined, and then resume my reading. Frequently, there would be references to several structures, which had been defined independently, and without reference to one another.
This book brings it all together. The drawings are excellent, showing locations, relationships, and shapes far better than any photograph, magnetic resonance image, etc., could, in large part because of the use of color. There are twenty pages of horizontal and coronal sections of the brain in which both black-and-white magnetic resonance images and drawings are shown.
In addition to the anatomic content at a gross level, this book covers the anatomy of neurons and synapses and the process of neurotransmission very well.
The detail of the text and the drawings means that this is probably not a good choice as an introduction to neuroscience, but I'm definitely going to have it by my side for all my future reading about the subject.
Great atlas, not so great index Apr 23, 2006
This is a very useful atlas. Like most Netter illustrations, the pictures are beautiful. The index is much too sparse, which means that you sometimes have to spend time flipping through the book to find a diagram that you know is in there somewhere. This isn't quite as bad as it could be since the book is divided into sections which make it a little easier to track things down, but it can be frustrating at times. If you're REALLY serious about learning neuroanatomy, I recommend this as an adjunct to Duaine Haines' atlas of neuroanatomy. They complement one another well. The Haines' atlas lacks color and shows most things in slices, but it has real photos in it and MRI images as well, while the Netter atlas doesn't show as many structures as Haines' atlas does. The brainstem nuclei, for example, are much better represented in the Haines' atlas. However, what the Netter's atlas does show, it shows in a manner more conducive to conveying the three-dimensional anatomy.
Excellent reference book, IMHO Mar 13, 2006
I'm a doctoral student in Psychiatric Rehabilitation, a field which focuses on functional rehabilitation for people with serious mental illnesses. I purchased this book to help me make sense of the relevant research in neuroscience and psychopharmacology, for which it has proven extremely valuable. I highly recommend this book for anyone trying to get an initial handle on neuroanatomy.
