Review

Doody's Book Review -- "This is an excellent book that should be part of neurological, neurosurgical, and general medical libraries. Its usefulness goes well beyond tests and can remain as a solid reference in neuroanatomy for students and professionals alike...One of the most important features is the CD-ROM that allows readers to ask themselves questions that will rarely remain unanswered by the excellent writing, exuberant pictures, and immediate correlation found in this book."

Book Review - Clinical Neuroanatomy for Medical Students by R.S. Snell (0-316-80103-8) Alexander Tan, 5th Year Medical Student, Liverpool University 19/10/00
Learning neuroanatomy is like being in a huge maze. Mention it to any medical student who has just had their first encounter with it, and the most likely response you'll get is a heavy sigh. More often that not, medical students faced with the task of understanding neuroanatomy will lose their way and become disheartened as they go along. The subject is vast and complex. Some may end up never quite finding their way out of this maze for their entire medical lives.
In this day and age however, medical texts are becoming more and more user-friendly. Gone are the days when students had to learn from great tomes crammed with fact upon fact written in archaic prose with hardly a diagram or table in sight. Principles, facts and patterns that once took medical students ages to grasp are now explained in simple language and accompanied by visual aids. Current textbooks also concentrate on presenting information that has clinical relevance rather than just inconsequential facts. In fact, medical textbooks nowadays can sometimes appear quite attractive!
Oversimplification and omission of material however, may lead to an incomplete or flawed understanding of a subject. It is important remember that in neuroanatomy, there are a great number of important and relevant facts that are intrinsically difficult to understand. The temptation of taking short cuts will always seem a feasible option when learning neuroanatomy!
Snell's Neuroanatomy is quite comprehensive - it covers a wide range of topics from the neurobiology of neurons to neurodevelopment. At the same time, it is quite understandable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really useful but lacking in places 12 Mar 2011
By SGL
Format:Paperback
I found this book really good for my medical studies although the order and things that were included each chapter were a bit questionable. Some of the language used was also very Americanised which didn't help when comparing it with an English anatomy sheet. But still a really good purchase!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for review, Not good for explanations 12 Jun 2005
Format:Paperback
While I agree that this book is quite clear and concise, it is not very good at explaining concepts. It is a bit too concise and throws out a lot of terms that you are assumed to be familiar with. If you are a neuroanatomists or very interesting in the nervous sytem, this is a great book. If you are a basic medical student, look for another book which gives better explanations about clinical symptoms and the reasons behind them. The questions in each chapter are also very good. If you are using this as a review tool or reference, then it's the book for you. If not, then I would suggest searching for another book.

2.0 out of 5 stars The CD is missing 31 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Recieved the book this morning and the wrapping paper was ripped (probably caused by the postman trying to push the package through the letter box). In terms of the condition of the book, I would not classify it as new. Most importantly, the CD is missing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Reference for Students 2 Nov 2000
By "slavine2" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Learning neuroanatomy is like being in a huge maze. Mention it to any medical student who has just had their first encounter with it, and the most likely response you'll get is a heavy sigh. More often that not, medical students faced with the task of understanding neuroanatomy will lose their way and become disheartened as they go along. The subject is vast and complex. Some may end up never quite finding their way out of this maze for their entire medical lives.
Snell's Neuroanatomy is quite comprehensive - it covers a wide range of topics from the neurobiology of neurons to neurodevelopment. At the same time, it is quite understandable. The language used is clear and concise with appropriate diagrams and tables. There is an emphasis on clinical correlations in this book as evidenced by the clinical notes in each chapter, which highlight the clinical significance of the information that has been presented in the chapter. Anatomy with little significance have either been omitted or given only brief descriptions in the book.
Clinical correlation is important, for all too often, students don't realise the practical purpose of what they are learning. Visual aids in the book include images of neuroanatomy in practice as well; quite a number of CT and MRI scans are included. There are also lots of illustrations, pathological sections and photographs. At the end of each chapter, USMLE type questions are provided. On the extremely rare occasion when the thirst for learning neuroanatomy is not satisfied, references to authoritative books and papers are given (yikes!). The whole format and overall presentation of book are similar in style to Professor Snell's more well-known clinical anatomy book.
This book will not give an instantaneous understanding of neuroanatomy but with enough effort and thought, the book does deliver. It shortens and guides one through the potentially confusing and long journey of learning neuroanatomy. All in all, this book covers enough neuroanatomy in sufficient detail to be a good reference text for students and at the same time is quite accessible (considering the subject it deals with) and would function quite well as a primary textbook also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Check out the 5th Ed, 4th Ed was terrible 3 Mar 2004
By DrGnarlton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I'm in the middle of MS-II neuro and the 5th Ed, NOT the 4th, compares favorably with the popular Blumenfled text. I like Snell better because the images are a little simpler and it is more condensed. Clinical correlations at the end of each chapter are good and the questions are great. See what you think at the library first. Enjoi

5.0 out of 5 stars Get it !!! 23 Mar 2006
By A. Shalman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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 !

1.0 out of 5 stars Snell Neuro = As useful as an AOL disk 2 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have the major Neuro books, of which Crossman (for overview) and Nolte (for detail) came out on top. Snell's Neuro was very poorly illustrated, typeography made my eyes strain, illustrations were irregularly labelled often missing out the most important aspects, text did not focus on important points, no heirarchy of importance of information. I cannot even in good conscience take someone's money to sell it second-hand, so I think I'll give it to the library. Snell Neuro was money down the drain. At least AOL disks are free.

1.0 out of 5 stars Look elsewhere... 6 Jan 2006
By MDiva - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The diagrams and text seem disjointed. I grew weary after having to turn several pages before finding the diagrams referred to in the text. And after all of that flipping around for the diagrams, the diagrams themselves leave lots to be desired. This title is the required text for my neuroanatomy class, so I'm keeping it, but will look into others to supplement my studies.
