About this book

   With this seventh edition, Noback’s 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.

Reviews

From the reviews of the seventh edition:

“The seventh edition of this classic neuroanatomy/neuroscience textbook continues to dazzle in its presentation of essential information in a way that is both classic and timely. … book is designed for medical and dental students who want a general overview of the discipline for potential board review … . It is aimed at any professional health personnel who require an overview of the human nervous system and its function. … It is a classic and should be in every medical school, university, and hospital library.” (Joseph I. Sirven, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2012)

"This is an excellent purchase for general medical libraries and neuroscience departments." - Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal
