This single-author text introduces the student to the fundamentals of the nervous system as it relates to the practice of medicine and human health. The workings of the nervous system are communicated in easy to understand language. The text emphasizes the contribution of the nervous system to diverse and common medical disorders, some of which are primarily neurological in nature (stroke, Parkinson's disease, hearing loss) and many of which are the domain of non-neurological specialities such as ophthalmology, ear-nose-throat, cardiology, medicine and the like (myopia, hearing loss, hypertension, sleep apnea, and asthma). The writing style is simple, clear and literary. Chapters can be read in a single sitting. Important concepts are presented both clearly and thoroughly, rendering this textbook appropriate for both the student who is learning about the nervous system for the first time and the student with previous knowledge of neurobiology. Medical Neurobiology is wholly concentrated on the human nervous system. Subjects without clinical relevance such as invertebrate neurobiology, cat or leech locomotion, or sound localization are not covered. On the other hand, subjects with significant clinical relevance such as walking, making facial expressions, cranial nerve functions, breathing, hearing and seeing are covered in depth. In essence, rather than teach either basic neurobiology or neurology, this book aims to communicate the relevance of the nervous system to the practice of every medical specialty from cardiology to dermatology, neonatology, pediatrics, geriatrics, pulmonology, ophthalmology, and so on. Thus, Medical Neurobiology teaches, explains and clarifies neurobiological concepts that will impact every health professional.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Everything you ever wanted to know about the nervous system..... 30. Juli 2011
Von BDS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
You don't have to be a medical student to enjoy this book; anyone with any interest in learning about the brain will benefit from the book's novel and engaging approach. From the opening chapter, which discusses the extraordinary case of Jean-Dominique Bauby, the author of "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly", the author helps the reader recognize that we are surrounded by neurobiology. Ever wonder why we sigh? Or why humans were not born with the ability to walk? These and many other questions are answered throughout the text, which make it eminently readable. The author's passion for the subject is evident on every page. Although targeted for medical students, I recommend the book for anyone who wants a comprehensive framework for how the nervous system works; you'll actually have fun reading it!

4.0 von 5 Sternen New approach to teach neuroanatomy for medical students 11. Mai 2011
Von Tal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
With a lot of enthusiasm I read the new Medical Neurobiology book and I really liked it. The book is clear, inquisitive and attractive by the way that presents the subjects. The shaded color boxes bring relevant clinical conditions, syndromes, common phenomenon that either we face them every day, or the doctors will meet them in the future. Phenomenon's that we really do not pay attention to mechanisms underline them. The Boxes enriches the text a lot. The sketches are clear and simple. The author took a new and different approach to teach first year medical student Neuroanatomy. Instead of describing pathways and regions in the nervous system the book uses a different approach by asking question and proposed explanations for neurological phenomenon. The new unique approach justifies the chosen title, Medical Neurobiology, which catalogued this book on a different niche from the traditional Neuroanatomy books. Soft cover as a textbook is preferred.Barr's The Human Nervous System: An Anatomical Viewpoint, Ninth Edition

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good for High School Students too! 14. November 2013
Von Sarva Lal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Fantastic Writing, a joy to read. Nice as book for somebody with a high school science background who is interested in everything brain. The book avoids the disjointedness of many other textbooks by the virtue of its sole author.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It's Like Having A Conversation With Your Professor 3. November 2013
Von Chicago Med Student - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This book has a number of features which make it an ideal text for medical students without substantial background in neurobiology or neuroscience.


- Perhaps the book's greatest virtue is its conversational tone. Dr. Mason's conversational style engages the reader with every-day examples, down-to-earth language, and simple illustrations of complex phenomena, allowing the more complex details to be worked out as the book develops. When reading through the text, I was surprised by how intuitive the concepts that she presented seemed - probably because she makes sure to lay them out in a simple fashion BEFORE employing all the complicated terminology that can intimidate and confuse the beginning student.

- Broad, Comprehensive Scope: This book is relatively unique in that is not only covers neuroanatomical and neurophysiological concepts, but also covers the embryology/development as well as cell biology of the nervous system. This gives a broader picture of the nervous system than a traditional neuroanatomy text. The various concepts are also presented in a logical manner, with the more advanced topics presented after - and built upon - the earlier, foundational topics. This gives the book a narrative style, as opposed to a disjointed or encyclopedic style of some other texts.

- Clinical Focus: There are clinical correlations interspersed throughout the text that I found very useful. Although some may prefer the format of having a "Clinical Case" section at the end of each chapter, Dr. Mason's strategy of peppering clinical material throughout the text helps create a narrative, where diseases and syndromes are visited in one context (ex. the cellular dysfunction involved in neuro-muscular diseases) and then revisited later in another context (ex. the motor tracts affected in neuro-muscular diseases).

- It Sticks to the Clinical Material: The book is aimed a medical students, and thus stays relatively clear of material that is only of interest to researchers. Material is presented as either directly relevant to medical practice, or as essential background that every medical student should know.


- Diagrams: The illustrations and diagrams could use some re-imagining by a professional designer. Many of the diagrams are intended to be simple, in order to convey the essential information, although sometimes this simplicity makes understanding the diagrams more difficult due to lack of supporting visual context. Although generally, if you spend some time working through them, they will make sense.

- It Is A First Edition: This isn't a CON per se, however, because the text is still in its first printing, there are errors that tend to accompany most first-edition books. Almost all errors are small and easily detectable by a second year medical student (for example, mistakenly classifying acetaminophen as an NSAID). Presumably in later additions these will be corrected.

- Lack of Practice Questions: This is more of a stylistic preference. Many students prefer practice questions or exercises at the end of chapters to reinforce material. This book omits these.

- Quantity of Images: This book is more text-heavy than some, and has relatively fewer images. Although all essential concepts have illustrations accompanying them, more images would be a plus. Further, some of the diagrams of the brain can be confusing. I recommend obtaining a good neuroanatomy atlas to accompany this text.


This is an excellent neurobiology text for medical students, and has a broad scope and readable, down-to-earth style. Be on the lookout for minor errors, and bring an accompanying neuroanatomy atlas with you, and you'll learn a great deal of neurobiology. This is one of the very few textbooks that can be read cover to cover with enjoyment.

Most importantly, after finishing the book, you will feel prepared to move on to the clinical pathology of the nervous system with confidence.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Best Medical Textbook I own 29. September 2011
Von W. Williams - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is so well thought out and put together. You can really tell Dr. Mason has not only put a lot of thought into this work, but also her enthusiasm for neurobiology pours out through every page. She makes the task of learning this material very interesting. If I only could buy one text for medical school, it would be this one!
