This book is intended to present neuro-anatomy and especially neurophysiology mainly from the standpoint of clinical usefulness. It is divided into twenty-four chapters to include the peripheral nervous system, spinal cord, brain stem, cerebellum, epithalamus, extrapyramidal systems, the brain, the vegetative nervous system, posture and the cerebrospinal fluid. The author has ably described in his introduction changes in the nervous system brought about by evolution. There is considerable information in every chapter. Many questions pertaining to neurologic signs and symptoms are adequately answered. The language used is simple and easy to read. This volume is recommended for students, teachers and clinicians because the author has included much of the recent work published regarding all functions of the cerebrospinal system.
