Book Description:
Elliott M. Marcus, M.D., was a friend and colleague for over 40 years, and he was the father of neurosciences at the Tufts University School of Medicine, and with his passing in 2011, we lost a dear friend, colleague, dynamic teacher, and an outstanding neurologist. This textbook is dedicated to his memory. The purpose of this textbook is to enable a neuroscientist to discuss the structure and functions of the brain at a level appropriate for students at many levels of study including undergraduate, graduate, dental, or medical school level. It is truer in neurology than in any other system of medicine that a firm knowledge of basic science material, that is, the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the nervous system, enables one to readily arrive at the diagnosis of where the disease process is located and to apply their knowledge at solving problems in clinical situations. The authors have a long experience in teaching neuroscience courses at the first- or second-year level to medical and dental students and to residents in which clinical information and clinical problem-solving are integral to the course. Dr. Jacobson has taught neuroanatomy and gross anatomy for many years to medical and dental students at the Tufts University School of Medicine and an upper-level biology course on the central nervous system to undergraduates at Tufts University in Medford, MA, utilizing many of Dr. Marcus’ cases to engage students. He also has used several movies on the brain developed in Hollywood to further involve students. Dr. Marcus practiced neurology for 40 years, and he developed a case history of problem-solving sessions in the recent book Integrated Neurosciences by E.M. Marcus, S. Jacobson, and T. Sabin (Oxford University Press, 2014), and he also conducted a problem-solving seminar in which all medical students at the University of Massachusetts participate during their clinical neurology clerkship rotation. This provides students an opportunity to refresh their problem-solving skills and to review and update that basic science material essential for clinical neurology. Dr. Pugsley is a senior neurosurgeon with extensive clinical and teaching experience. He trained in neurosurgery at the Tufts University School of Medicine. He observed that the inclusion of case history materials reinforces the basic science subject matter learned by markedly increasing the interest of students in both basic and clinical science material. He has added many new cases and a neurosurgeon’s prospective to disease. In this third edition, decisions had to be made so that the size of the textbook remained within reasonable limits. Throughout this book, we have utilized clinical illustration and integrated the anatomical, neurological, and neurosurgery managed in most of today’s neuroscience courses, and we have responded to many of the very worthwhile suggestions from our colleagues. The book contains the core topics concerned with the central nervous system and all chapters have been updated. We have divided this edition into five parts: (I) Introduction to the Central Nervous System (Chaps. 1 – 10 ); (II) The Systems (Chaps. 11 – 17 ); (III) Neuropathology, (Chap. 18 ) Vascular Diseases and (Chap. 19 ) Nonvascular Diseases; (IV) The Nonnervous Elements, (Chap. 20 ) Meninges, Blood Supply, Ventricular System, (Chap. 21 ) General Case Histories, Problem-Solving, and (Chap. 22 ) Movies on the Brain; and (V) Descriptive Atlas of the Brain and Spinal Cord (Chap. 23 )
