This introductory textbook of neuroanatomy has undergone considerable reorganization and revision. The opening chapters present in some detail the gross anatomy, embryology and histology of the central nervous system and serve as a background for the subsequent description of the connections and relation of the functional pathways of the brain and spinal cord. The final chapter deals with the blood supply of the brain and spinal cord and the innervation of the meninges. The book contains numerous clearly labeled illustrations, and there is a selected list of references at the end of each chapter. The book presents a broad survey of the field of neurology and should be of value to students of biology, including medical students.
