This textbook is designed as a vade mecum ( go with me ) for material sudents. While based on campus, the gross and microscopic structures of the nervous systém také precedence, along with their great diversity of functions. A strong stimulus to understand normal structure and function is provided by clinical examples of the conseyuences of break-downs of diverse kinds. While hospital-based, consultation of the book in a clinical setting recalls the functional anatomy studied on campus. Sequential fusion of descriptive structure, function, andmalfunction is known as vertical integration and is highly recommended owing to its manifest logic.
