Draw It to Know It teaches neuroanatomy through step-by-step instruction of how to draw neuroanatomical pathways and structures.
Draw It to Know It
Its instructive language is highly engaging. Each color was coded for particular structures red for the caudate, green for the putamen, yellow for the claustrum and burnt sienna for the globus pallidus. At our senior play, which poked fun at our professors, a beleaguered medical student was asked to name the components of the basal ganglia.
Except for the handful of us who went draw it to know it neuroanatomy neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry, the basal ganglia to the rest of my class is just a fading joke from the distant past.
And yet, no one can practice even rudimentary neurology without some basic under- standing of the neuroanatomy.
Neuroanatomy - Adam J. Fisch - Oxford University Press
Non-neurologists in particular, many of whom see large numbers of patients draw it to know it neuroanatomy neurological complaints, have no hope of sorting out common problems such as headache, dizziness, tiredness, fatigue, sleep disorders, numbness and tingling, and pain, without a reasonable grasp of how the nervous system is organized.
Despite all of the marvelous advances in neuroscience, genetics, and neuroimaging, the actual practice of neurology, whether it is done by a neurologist or a non-neurologist, involves localizing the problem.
Th e nervous system is just too complicated to skip this step. Users draw neuroanatomical structures and pathways in several steps so they are remembered and use mental and physical mnemonics to demonstrate difficult anatomical rotations and directional pathways.
Anatomical pictures and radiographic images accompany the diagrams to clarify spatially challenging features; relevant synonyms are listed to avoid inter-text confusion; inconsistencies in the neuroanatomy literature are highlighted to mitigate frustration; and historical and current accounts of neuroanatomical systems are presented for draw it to know it neuroanatomy.
Fisch Provides the reader a simple step-by-step method to learn important neuroanatomical figures; Draw each neuroanatomical pathway and structure, and in the process, create memorable and reproducible schematics for the various learning points in Neuroanatomy; and Includes ample drawing space for the student to practice.
