About this item

The workbook format is exactly what is missing from the current selections of neuroanatomy texts. It has been developed in response to student feedback specifically to address “Neurophobia”—the term, coined by multiple international studies, used to describe the attitude of first year medical students toward neuroanatomy.

Neuroanatomical localization remains the most poorly developed skill in medical school, and “neurophobia” extends well into clinical practice. The skill of localizing neuroanatomically needs repeated practice if the student is to become proficient, yet most texts merely present neuroanatomy, complicate it with esoteric minutia, and occasionally demonstrate the skill of localization through limited examples. This passive form of learning is inefficient and frustrating. Case Closed! Neuroanatomy promotes active learning by taking inspiration from other popular case-based formats. The authors have succeeded in developing a brief, high yield primer that teaches students how to localize, challenges them to develop their thinking via cleverly designed and beautifully illustrated cases, and allows them to solve the problems that will reappear in their exams.
