Summary: Get it !!!
Rating: 5

Comprehension of neuroanatomy and neurobiology are the most difficult tasks I had to face. The complex structures of the brain and spinal cord, their tracts and pathways are an enormous ammount of knowledge that have to be presented to a student withought the unnecessary complexity other books present. This book has really made it simpler for me and gave me the understanding I needed to excell this subject.
Although the embryology part wasn't enough for my course, the rest of the book was exceptional!
I want to thank the author for this book and for the great work he had put in it.. It is worth at least 5 stars !
