Dr. Globus presents the fundamentals of neuroanatomy (including the most important microscopic, physiologic and embryologic features) by guiding the student in his studies, step by step, from simple instructions how to handle a brain or cord to the methods of identifying individual structures (convolutions, sulci, blood vessels) by inspection, dissection and staining. Problems are offered for solution, with instructions to outline the observations on plates appended to the book. This method of teaching facilitates the understanding of the complex structure of the central nervous system, with its numerous tracts and masses of gray matter, their mutual relationship and their significance. The topographic features are always emphasized, and when individual sections, such as those of the medulla oblongata, are described, a detailed summary is given at the end of the chapter.
