An update of a classic student text unlocking the mystery of veterinary neurology and neuroanatomy King's Applied Anatomy of the Central Nervous System of Domestic Mammals, Second Editionis an ideal introduction for those with no prior knowledge of the central nervous system. Presented in a logical and accessible manner, readers can quickly comprehend the essential principles of how the central nervous system is constructed, the way it works and how to recognise damaged components. By blending descriptive anatomy with clinical neurology, the text offers a unique approach & explaining the structure and function of the central nervous system while highlighting the relevance to clinical practice.Revised and updated to cover the latest clinical developments, this second edition includes additional content on electrodiagnostic methods, stem cell transplantation and advanced imaging. The book also comes with a companion website featuring self-assessment questions, label the diagram exercises, and downloadable figures to aid further learning.An excellent introductory text for veterinary students,King's Applied Anatomy of the Central Nervous System of Domestic Mammals, Second Editionis also an invaluable reference for trainee veterinary neurology specialists as well as veterinary practitioners with a particular interest in neurology.
