Bridging the gap between the peripheral and central nervous systems, the second edition of Neuroanatomical Basis of Clinical Neurology enriches understanding of neurological conditions through a conceptual approach to neuronal circuitry. The book retains the basic outline of contents from the first edition, integrating structural organization with pertinent clinical disorders, while reflecting the substantial growth and ever-changing information in neuroscience

After an introduction to the developmental and cellular aspects of the nervous system, the book discusses in depth the morphology and internal organization of the central nervous system. It examines the somatic and autonomic components of the peripheral nervous system, emphasizing nerve entrapments and neuropathies. The author describes various dysfunctions by demonstrating the neuronal interconnectivity between higher and lower autonomic centers and the mediation of visceral reflexes.

The Second Edition incorporates and highlights common and relevant clinical conditions. Topics include:
Various forms of cortical dysfunctions, such as seizures, disconnection syndrome, coma, and dementia
The role of prefrontal cortex in behavior and attention, introducing the topic of autism
Up-to-date information on the auditory, vestibular, gustatory, and limbic systems
The neurochemistry of the limbic system, memory and associated disorders, and the structural and neuronal circuitry of the hippocampal gyrusStructural organization and associated pathways of the extrapyramidal system, demonstrating the neurochemical basis of movement disorders

This new edition skillfully integrates over a decade of discovery in neuroscience since the publication of the first edition, and introduces deepened insights into the neuronal synaptic connectivity and the mechanisms that underlie neurologic disorders. The book remains an essential source of information for medical and allied health students, practitioners of neurology, and students of neuroscience.

The continued interest in the publication of a new edition of this textbook by neuroscience educators and students in several medical schools and allied health institutions in the United States and abroad has given the impetus to embark on this project. 
The support of the editorial staff of Taylor & Francis undoubtedly facilitated this work and provided the means for a successful conclusion. The constructive input of a great many colleagues and outstanding individuals in the field of neuroscience and neurology helped to establish the foundation for the direction of this new edition. Consideration has been given to the many helpful suggestions of students with regard to scope and contents of particular chapters.
Toward that end, a great effort was directed at the revision of a significant number of schematic drawings and the modification of a number of brain images. The introduction of numerous brain sections and applied radiographic images including angiograms was aimed at enhancing the reader’s ability to interpret both structural and functional features of the nervous system within the context of neurologic disorders. The inclusion of multiple colors in the illustrations has facilitated the interpretation of the anatomy of the nervous system and rendered the illustrations an integral part of the documented text. The distinguishing characteristic of this textbook has remained in the presentation of the peripheral and central nervous systems as a continuum within the context of neurological disorders.
