Gray’s Clinical Neuroanatomy focuses on how knowing functional neuroanatomy is essential for a solid neurologic background for patient care in neurology. Elliot Mancall, David Brock, Susan Standring and Alan Crossman present the authoritative guidance of Gray’s Anatomy along with 100 clinical cases to highlight the relevance of anatomical knowledge in this body area and illustrate the principles of localization.

“The book is written for any student of anatomy, from the beginning of training to late in a medical career.I still get a bit giddy about this book. It would have been wonderful to have it years ago (I will not say how many) when I was taking neuro-anatomy” – Korwyn Williams, MD, PhD, Doody’s review service rating – 4 stars!
“Gray’s Clinical Neuroanatomy: The Anatomic Basis for Clinical Neuroscience” is largely taken from the 39th edition of “Gray’s Anatomy: The Anatomical Basis of Clinical Practice”, edited by Susan Standring, though the text has been rearranged to support the organization of this book. One hundred case studies of neurological disorders, usually illustrated, have been added and are featured in purple boxes throughout the text. The subjects of neuroembryology and development have been expanded. But this is not a new book. Editors Elliott L. Mancall and David G. Brook offer an augmented version of the neuroanatomy text in “The Anatomical Basis of Clinical Practice”, with its copious, bright illustrations -not, it should be noted, the “Classic” edition of “Gray’s Anatomy” with the sketchy black and white illustrations that are difficult to make sense of. The text begins with basic topics in the first of seven sections, then moves on to “the systematized gross and microscopic anatomy of the central and peripheral nervous systems”: The Spine, The Brain Stem and Cranial Nerves, The Cerebellum, The Cerebrum, The Peripheral and Autonomic Nervous Systems, The Neuromuscular Junction and Muscle. There are a total of 23 chapters with references listed at the end of each. The book is large format, 12.25 x 9.5 inches, and the editors cram a lot of text and illustrations on those big pages. The text is in quite a small font. You may need either good light or glasses to read it comfortably. Few pages do not contain at least one illustration. A wonderful array of photographs, micrographs, color drawings, tables, MRIs, and CT scans illustrate the text. Drawings are clear and informative. Some talented artists lent their skills to this project. I believe this book is aimed at general practice physicians, who may want to have it on hand for reference or review, and at students of neuroscience. It is not detailed enough or clinical enough for a neurologist. It is comprehensible to an interested layperson, such as myself. The authors do not presuppose any particular knowledge of neuroanatomy or physiology, but a glossary of terms would have been useful -and probably not only for laypeople. There is an index. It is difficult to know how to rate a book like this one without having any similar text to compare it to. “Gray’s Clinical Neuroanatomy” is the only neuroanatomy text with this level of detail that I have. I have found it useful and fascinating, if dense. It is an excellent reference for libraries, and, though it is inadequate for neurologists, I expect everyone else with an interest in neuroscience will be pleased.
