I hated neuroanatomy in med school, but this helped me get through it. This textbook provided enough background information to lay a good foundation, but wasn't so dense that I couldn't get through a chapter in a sitting. In fact, the author even throws some comedy into an otherwise boring topic see definition of arachnoid villi in back of book.
Highly recommend. November 5, - Published on Amazon. One of the only medical school textbooks I decided to buy and not rent from Amazon. This book is very clear and concise in simple language, and provides some very nice colored photographs of relevant info.
Will definitely use through rotations and hopefully afterward. July 26, - Published on Amazon. This book was sold at a phenomenal price for its condition.

It is very informative, and the contents are written with clarity. Would recommend for any student of neuroscience. Go to Amazon. Discover the best of shopping and entertainment with Amazon Prime. O'Rahilly, "Basic human Anatomy. Figure 6. Sympathetic pathway to the head. Note the descending connection from the hypothalamus through the brain stem and cervical spinal cord to the pregangilionic neuron in the upper thoracic cord. The axon from the preganglionic neuron exits the cord and joins the sympathetic gangliated chain. Those destined for the head ascend the cervical sympathetic chain to reach the superior cervical ganglion, where they synapse with postganglionic neurons.
The axons from the postganglionic neurons join blood vessels to the head those to the orbit are depicted in the figure as following the internal carotid to the ophthalmic artery. With permission from A. Reeves, "Disorders of the Nervous System. Figure 7.
Progressive stages of development of the neural tube. The black represents the location of neural crest cells. The light gray circle directly below the neural tube is the notocord. Figure 8. A view of the dorsal aspect of the embryo showing the location of the neural epithelium and the successive stages of closure of the neural tube. Note that the anterior and posterior neuropore are open at each end in the lower figure.
The neural tube in the region that will be the spinal cord left and brain stem right. Note how the alar plates have separated from one another in the view at the left.
The motor cranial nerve nuclei are ventromedial to the sulcus limitans and the sensory nuclei are dorsolateral. Figure 9. Efferent connections from the raphe nuclei serotonin; A and from the locus ceruleus and medullary reticular formation norepinephrine; B.
Figure Spinothalmic tract. Spinal cord at the bottom and cerebral cortex at the top. Note that the sections are not to scale. Descending pathways modifying pain perception. Regions that are cross-hatched contain enkephalinergic interneurons. Dorsal columns pathways, medial lemniscus pathway. Fasciculus gracilis from lower limb. Fasciculus cuneatus from upper limb.

Ventral view of the brain stem including the locations of the cranial nerves. By permission of R. Trigeminal sensory systems. Trigeminal tracts and nuclei are superimposed over a dorsal view of the brain stem with the caudal medulla at the lower aspect of the figure and the midbrain at the upper.
Note that the mesencephalic tract and nucleus are not shown. Structure of the ear. Note that the inner ear consists of a cavity in the bone bony labyrinth containing a sac. This sac consists of the coiled cochlear duct hearing and vestibular elements that include three semicircular ducts that are oriented at right angels to one another. Location of the semicircular ducts in the head. Note that the anterior semicircular duct of one ear is in the same plane as the posterior canal from the other ear.
The structure of hair cells.
Note that the kinocilium is longer and is attached to the tip of the other cilia by a filament. Tension on this filament will open ion channels and result in an increase in action potentials in the nerve below. Structure of a christae. Note that all of the hair cells are polarized in the same direction. Structure of a macula. Related Information. Close Figure Viewer. Browse All Figures Return to Figure. Previous Figure Next Figure.
