When CharIes C. Thomas makes up his mind to publish a top-notch work from a typographica angIe he certainIy achieves it.
As a book to hoId and Iook at, this is a gem. Wherry, whose daiIy business was carrying on a fight against the agents of choIera, Ieprosy, plague, tuIaremia, gIanders, and other forms of microscopic death. He built new pathways in bacterioIogy, epidemioIogy, and public heaIth. We11 written, it does justice to a man whose Iife was interesting. To a11 interested in medica history and the cuItura1 side of medicine we heartily recommend this handsome voIume. Edited Paris, Brody, M.
Price francs. The publishers cIaim that this is the first book on heIiotherapy, uItra-vioIet and infra-red radiation therapy in the world.
It is a compIete and authoritative study to which a11 the continenta1 heIiotherapy pioneers have contributed.
It is schoIarIy, detailed and entireIy up-to-date. Indeed, when the whoIe work was compIeted, each author provided severa pages of addenda to cover the period of editing and printing. The two voIumes contain closely printed text pages.
AIthough there is no index, there is a fuI1 table of contents and detaiIed summaries at the heads of chapters. Recommended heartiIy to those interested in this form of therapy who are ready readers of French. Every conceivabIe condition in which direct sunIight or the various forms of light radiation can be used is discussed by a master in the fieId.

It is suitable for medical students, dental students, nurses, and allied health students. Residents fnd this book useful during their rotations. The functional organization of the nervous system has been emphasized and indicates how injury and disease can result in neurologic deficits.
The amount of factual information has been strictly limited to that which is clinically important. In this edition, the content of each chapter has been reviewed, obsolete material has been discarded, and new material added. Each chapter is divided into the following categories: Clinical Example.
A short case report that serves to dramatize the relevance of neuroanatomy introduces each chapter. Chapter Objectives.
This section details the material that is most important to learn and understand in each chapter. Basic Neuroanatomy. This section provides basic information on neuroanatomical structures that are of clinical importance. Many crosssectional diagrams have been included to stimulate students to think in terms of three-dimensional anatomy, which is so important in the interpretation of CT scans and MRI images.
Clinical Notes. This section provides the practical application of neuroanatomical facts that are essential in clinical practice. It emphasizes the structures that the physician will encounter when making a diagnosis and treating a patient. It also provides the information necessary to understand many procedures and techniques and notes the anatomical pitfalls commonly encountered.
Clinical Problem Solving. This section provides the student with many examples of clinical situations in which a knowledge of neuroanatomy is necessary to solve clinical problems and to institute treatment; solutions to the problems are provided at the end of the chapter.
Review Questions. The purpose of the questions is threefold: to focus attention on areas of importance, to enable students to assess their areas of weakness, and to provide a form of self-evaluation when questions are answered under examination conditions.
Some of the questions are centered around a clinical problem that requires a neuroanatomical answer. Solutions to the problem are provided at the end of each chapter. In addition to the full text from the book, an interactive Review Test, including over questions, is provided online. The book is extensively illustrated. The majority of the figures have been kept simple and are in color. As in the previous edition, a concise Color Atlas of the dissected brain is included prior to the text.
This small but important group of colored plates enables the reader to quickly relate a particular part of the brain to the whole organ. References to neuroanatomical literature are included should readers wish to acquire a deeper knowledge of an area of interest. My special thanks are owed to Larry Clerk, who, as a senior technician in the Department of Anatomy at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, greatly assisted me in the preparation of neuroanatomical specimens for photography.
I am also grateful to members of the Department of Radiology for the loan of radiographs and CT scans that have been reproduced in different sections of this book.
I am most grateful to Dr. I also thank Dr. I thank the medical photographers of the Department of Radiology at Yale for their excellent work in reproducing the radiographs. Bottom: Inferior view of the brain.
