This small book is a laboratory manual designed to be used as a guide in the study of the central nervous system. The authors recommend that it be used in conjunction with a standard textbook. The text covers most of the material encompassed within the first-year medical curriculum in American medical schools. Some of the chapters have clear line drawings that illustrate particular points, but most have no illustrations. The text is an abbreviated compilation of factual material presented in a succinct manner. The Paris Anatomical Nomenclature has not been used, though it has been accepted by anatomists since 1955. The final section of the book contains a well-prepared atlas of Weigert-stained sections cut transversely.
The format of the book is attractive, but its usefulness would seem to depend upon how well this system of organization might be adapted to courses given in different medical schools.
