The strengths of the book include the hundreds of easy to understand color line illustrations, the clear and concise language of the text and the many tables of summarized information It could be highly recommended to and would be enjoyed by medical students and trainees in internal medicine, neurology, and neurosurgery, and also as a reference for clinicians in these fields, particularly those teaching students and trainees. World Neurosurgery. For more than seventy years, Clinical Neuroanatomy has delivered a streamlined, comprehensive, and easy-to-remember synopsis of neuroanatomy and its functional and clinical applications. Emphasizing the most important concepts, facts, and structures, this well-illustrated and enjoyable-to-read text reflects the state-of-the-art in pathophysiology and the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders. Features that make Clinical Neuroanatomy perfect for board review or as a clinical refresher: discussion of the latest advances in molecular and cellular biology in the context of neuroanatomy; clinical correlations to help you interpret and remember essential neuroanatomic concepts in terms of function and clinical application; and, numerous computed tomography CT and magnetic resonance images MRIs of the normal brain and spinal cord, functional magnetic resonance images that provide a noninvasive window on brain function, and neuroimaging studies that illustrate common pathological entities that affect the nervous system.

Biography Stephen G. His research has defined the ion channel architecture of nerve fibers, and demonstrated its importance for axonal conduction Science, He demonstrated increased expression of sodium channels in demyelinated axons Science, , identified the channel isoforms responsible for this remarkable neuronal plasticity which supports remission in multiple sclerosis PNAS, , and delineated the roles of sodium channels in axonal degeneration PNAS, He has made pivotal discoveries that explain pain after nerve injury.
In translational leaps from laboratory to humans, he carried out molecule-to-man studies combining molecular genetics, molecular biology, and biophysics to demonstrate the contribution of ion channels to human pain Trends in Molec.
Med, ; PNAS, He led an international coalition that identified sodium channel mutations as causes of peripheral neuropathy PNAS, He has used atomic-level modeling to advance pharmacogenomics, first in the laboratory Nature Comm.
An entirely new class of medications for neuropathic pain, based largely on his work, is currently in Phase II clinical trials. Waxman has published more than scientific papers. His H-index is and his papers have been cited more than 40, times. He has edited nine books, and is the author of Spinal Cord Compression and of Clinical Neuroanatomy translated into eight languages. He has trained more than academic neurologists and neuroscientists who lead research teams around the world.
