  • Succinct and practical introduction ot the anatomy of the human nervous system
  • Unique illustrations by premier medical artist Rober J. Demarest specifically prepared for this text
  • Coverage of dendrites, their richness, and their key role in nervous system function

   With this seventh edition,  Noback’s The Human Nervous System: Structure and Function continues to combine clear prose with exceptional original illustrations that provide a concise lucid depiction of the human nervous system. The book incorporates recent advances in neurobiology and molecular biology. Several chapters have been substantially revised.  These include Development and Growth, Blood Circulation and Imaging, Cranial Nerves and Chemical Senses, Auditory and Vestibular Systems, Visual System, and Cerebral Cortex. . Topics such as neural regeneration, plasticity and brain imaging are discussed.  Each edition of The Human Nervous System has featured a set of outstanding illustrations drawn by premier medical artist Robert J. Demarest.  Many of the figures from past editions have been modified and/or enhanced by the addition of color, which provides a more detailed visualization of the nervous system

   Highly praised in its earlier versions, this new edition offers medical, dental, allied health science and psychology students a readily understandable and organized view of the bewilderingly complex awe-inspiring human nervous system.  Its explanatory power and visual insight make this book an indispensable source of quick understanding that readers will consult gratefully again and again.
