Netter’s Atlas of Neuroscience, by David L. Felten and Anil N. Shetty, is an atlas and textbook that combines nearly 400 illustrations and radiologic images highlighting key neuroanatomical concepts and clinical correlations with updated information that reflects our current understanding of the nervous system. It offers user-friendly coverage in three parts-an overview of the nervous system, regional neuroscience, and systemic neuroscience- that enable you to review complex neural structures and systems from different contexts. Online access to Student Consult- where you’ll find the complete fully searchable contents of the book, videos of imaging sequences, links to relevant content in other Student Consult titles, and more- further enhances your study and helps to prepare you for exams.

  • Presents nearly 400 exquisite Netter and Netter-style illustrations that highlight key neuroscience concepts and clinical correlations, providing you with a quick and memorable overview of anatomy, function, and clinical relevance.
  • Provides concise text for fast, “at-a-glance” guidance.
  • Features a regional organization of the peripheral nervous system, spinal cord, brain stem and cerebellum, and forebrain...and a systemic organization of the sensory motor systems, motor systems (including cerebellum and basal ganglia), and limbic/hypothalmic/autonomic systems...that makes reference easier and more efficient.
  • Features high-quality imaging―high-resolution MRI in coronal and axial (horizontal) planes and brain stem cross-sections―as well MR angiography and venography and classical arteriography―for an enhanced perspective of intricacies of the nervous system.
  • Presents updated information and new figures that reflect the current understanding of the neural components and supportive tissue, regions, and systems of the brain, spinal cord, and periphery, to ensure that you have the latest knowledge.
  • Offers schematic cross-sectional brain stem anatomy and axial and coronal brain anatomy―with side-by-side comparisons with labeled MRs―to better illustrate the correlation between neuroanatomy and neurology.
  • Provides new 3D color pixelated imaging of commissural, association, and projection pathways of the brain.
  • Features Clinical Notes boxes that emphasize the clinical application of fundamental neuroscience.
  • Incudes online access to Student Consult where you’ll find the complete fully searchable contents of the book...3-D imaging sequences...links to relevant content in other Student Consult titles...and further enhance your study and help you prepare for exams.

result, primary sensory inputs from Ia afferents and other sensory influences, via interneurons, can take on a predominant influence over the excitability of the target motor neurons, leading to a hyperexcitable state. This may account in part for the hypertonic state and hyperreflexic responses to stimulation of primary muscle spindle afferents (muscle stretch reflex) and of flexor reflex afferents (nociceptive stimulation). Recent studies indicate that synaptic growth, plasticity, and

the magnet and are absorbed by protons in the tissues of the patient in the scanner. The pulses cause alignment of the protons as the result of raised energy levels; that is followed by a relaxation phase in which the protons return to a lower energy level. During the relaxation proc­ ess, a detector records the emitted energy, and a computer provides a uniform image of the scanned tissue. The intervals (milliseconds) between the pulses (repetition time, TR) and the intervals between the

The superior peduncle conveys the major efferents to the red nucleus and thalamus (especially the ventrolateral nucleus), whereas the inferior peduncle conveys the major efferents to the vestibular and reticular nuclei. The middle peduncle conveys the corticoponto-­cerebellar fibers. Afferents enter the

afferent inputs to the deep nuclei provide a coarse adjustment for their output to upper motor neurons, whereas the loop of afferent input through the cerebellar cortex back to the deep nuclei provides fine ­ adjustments for their output to upper motor neurons. The cerebellar peduncles are interior to the deep nuclei; these massive ­fiber bundles interconnect the cerebellum with the brain stem and the thalamus.

The 13-book Netter Collection of Medical Illustrations, which includes the greater part of the more than 20,000 paintings created by Dr. Netter, became and remains one of the most famous medical works ever published. The Netter Atlas of Human Anatomy, first published in 1989, presents the anatomical paintings
