2nd ed, by A. R. Crossman and D. Neary, 189 pp, 245 illus, Edinburgh, Scotland, Churchill Livingston, 2000.

The second edition of the neuroanatomy textbook by Crossman and Neary employs an integrated approach to the study of neuroanatomy. It is aimed at medical students in both the preclinical and clinical years and includes correlative material on neurophysiology, pathology, and clinical medicine. The introductory overview contains the essential aspects of neuroanatomy for those wishing a brief review, and proceeds to cover cellular, microscopic, gross, and surface anatomy in sequence. The text is profusely illustrated, in color. The drawings, photographs, and radiographs focus on the needs of the student who is just beginning to be amazed and discouraged by the intricacies of the nervous system.
