Description


Cranial Nerves: Function & Dysfunction 3rd edition presents problem-based learning cases and clinical testing in a visual format. 

Cranial Nerves targets students of the health sciences (medicine, rehabilitation sciences, dentistry, pharmacy, speech pathology, audiology, nursing, physical and health education, and biomedical communications) who may be studying neuroanatomy and gross anatomy for the first time.

The text guides users through pertinent information and full-color functional drawings including color-coded pathways/modalities from the periphery of the body to the brain (sensory input) and from the brain to the periphery (motor output).

Each pathway is described according to the direction of the nerve impulse, not according to the embryologic outgrowth of the nerve. Cranial Nerves: Function & Dysfunction 3rd edition separates the nerve fiber modalities, thereby highlighting important clinical aspects of each nerve.

The website includes all illustrations as well as 19 videos demonstrating the testing of the cranial nerves.
