Neuroanatomy in Clinical Context, Ninth Edition provides everything the student needs to master the anatomy of the central nervous system, all in a clinical setting. Clear explanations; abundant MRI, CT, MRA, and MRV images; full-color photographs and illustrations; hundreds of review questions; and supplemental online resources combine to provide a sound anatomical base for integrating neurobiological and clinical concepts. In thus applying neuroanatomy clinically, the atlas ensures student preparedness for exams and for rotations. This authoritative approach--combined with such salutary features as full-color stained sections, extensive cranial nerve cross-referencing, and systems neurobiology coverage--sustains the legacy of this revolutionary teaching and learning tool as the neuroanatomy atlas. New and hallmark features elucidate neuroanatomy and systems neurobiology for course success! NEW! Chapter on Herniation Syndromes decodes the elegant relationship between brain injury and resulting deficit. NEW! Clinical information integrated throughout the text is screened in blue for quick identification on the page. NEW! Enhanced clinical images emphasize clarity and detail like never before, including full-color images replacing many in black and white, higher-resolution brain scans, and reprocessed spinal cord and brainstem images. MRIs complement full-color anatomical illustrations, allowing for visualization of structures both as they appear to the unaided eye and on imaging studies. Unique, full-color illustrations integrate clinical images of representative lesions with the corresponding deficits highlighted. Full-color stained sections facilitate the easy identification of anatomical features. Dozens of pathway drawings superimposed over MRIs connect structure with function of neural pathways. Located on thePoint, this atlas's companion website offers a variety of supplemental learning resources to maximize study and review time! Question bank featuring over 280 USMLE-style and chapter-review style questions Bonus dissection photographs and brain slice series

How Do You Feel? brings together startling evidence from neuroscience, psychology, and psychiatry to present revolutionary new insights into how our brains enable us to experience the range of sensations and mental states known as feelings. Drawing on his own cutting-edge research, neurobiologist Bud Craig has identified an area deep inside the mammalian brain—the insular cortex—as the place where interoception, or the processing of bodily stimuli, generates feelings. He shows how this crucial pathway for interoceptive awareness gives rise in humans to the feeling of being alive, vivid perceptual feelings, and a subjective image of the sentient self across time. Craig explains how feelings represent activity patterns in our brains that signify emotions, intentions, and thoughts, and how integration of these patterns is driven by the unique energy needs of the hominid brain. He describes the essential role of feelings and the insular cortex in such diverse realms as music, fluid intelligence, and bivalent emotions, and relates these ideas to the philosophy of William James and even to feelings in dogs. How Do You Feel? is also a compelling insider's account of scientific discovery, one that takes readers behind the scenes as the astonishing answer to this neurological puzzle is pursued and pieced together from seemingly unrelated fields of scientific inquiry. This book will fundamentally alter the way that neuroscientists and psychologists categorize sensations and understand the origins and significance of human feelings.
