Given that neurobiology and neuroanatomy can be daunting subjects for many medical students and primary care physicians, this book provides a concise and enjoyable introduction to neuroscience, and covers the necessary topics. Doody's Notes

Peggy Masons Vorlesungen auf [...] sind nicht nur gut gegliedert, sondern auch leicht verständlich und mit viel Engagement konzipiert und vorgetragen. Das macht Spaß - ganauso wie dieses Buch!

Ein "gewichtiges" Lehrwerk für alle die wissen wollen, was bei ihnen (und anderen Leuten) im Kopf passiert - und da gibt es einiges zu entdecken, was die Autorin hier wunderbar erklärt.

Lediglich bei den Grafiken könnte man sich eine schönere Gestaltung wünschen.

Everything you ever wanted to know about the nervous system..... 30. Juli 2011
Von BDS - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter 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!

New approach to teach neuroanatomy for medical students 11. Mai 2011
Von Tal - Veröffentlicht auf
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

It's Like Having A Conversation With Your Professor 3. November 2013
Von Chicago Med Student - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter 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.

A beautiful and poetic read in neurobiology 27. März 2014
Von L. Pesce - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
There are a lot of big and heavy books about neuroscience and neuroanatomy. There are books with enough details to put to sleep a two year old toddler who drank a double espresso. This book is not one of those (I have "Principles of Neural Science, Fifth Edition" and looked and read many others, I can use those books only as references because that what they seem to be: a big big collection of facts and stories). This book gives us a very good perspective of all of this fits together and how it fits together with who we are as human beings and animals with a brain and neural system. To me this is invaluable and it is the only way to make sense out of the incredible complexity of the brain and the behaviors is creates. It is also the only text book I know which is also poetical, human and artistic in a beautiful way. It is really a worthwhile read to make, no matter what your walk in life is.
P.S. All the stories about missing pages and abominable spelling might be part of older versions, but I have found none in the one I am reading.

Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Just browsed through the book and I'm somewhat disappointed. It is clearly written, well organized, with good basic information but does not seem rigorous and comprehensive enough for medical students. I could see it better suited for an undergraduate or even high school course. For medicine, I think other books, such as 'Neuroanatomy through Clinical Cases', or one of the great neuroscience books, either Purves, which has great online support, or Kandel, both with up to date research findings and citations, and well written, are better choices. They are also excellent reference books to keep on my shelf long after the course is over. This one I don't think I would keep around.
