Praise for the former edition:An very good assessment for the written neurosurgical boards...recommended to all neurosurgery residents.--Journal of NeurosurgeryThe moment variation of Comprehensive Neurosurgery Board Review includes all of the info you must arrange for the yank Board of Neurological surgical procedure (ABNS) written exam. Authored via a workforce of specialist clinicians and neurosurgery trainees who earned best rankings on their checks, this variation distills the present wisdom of the neurosciences and crucial details for scientific perform. Six chapters offer complete insurance of center recommendations in anatomy, body structure, pathology, radiology, neurology, neurosurgery, and significant care. Features of the second one edition:
This fantastic evaluation is an critical source for neurosurgical citizens getting ready for the ABNS certification examination. it's also excellent for clinicians looking a refresher or for these getting ready for recertification tests.

The lateral ventricle, third ventricle, cerebral aqueduct, and fourth ventricle are seen from the lateral brain surface (left) and the front (right). The lateral ventricle is divided into four main components: anterior (or frontal) horn, body, inferior (or temporal) horn, and the posterior (or occipital) horn. The interventricular foramen (of Monro) connects each lateral ventricle with the third ventricle.
2-24). FIG. 2-23 Key cortical regions for controlling movement. The limbic and prefrontal association areas are involved in the initial decision to move, in relation to motivational and emotional factors. In reaching to grasp an object, the visual areas process information about the location and shape of the object. This information is transmitted, via the posterior parietal lobe, to the premotor areas, which are important in movement planning. From there, information is transmitted to the primary motor cortex, from which descending control signals are sent to the motor neurons.

CHAPTER 2 • NEUROANATOMY BASICS The limbic and prefrontal motor areas are important in the decision to make a movement. The premotor area is important in forming a motor plan of action (see Fig. 2-23). The major descending pathways are the lateral corticospinal tract, the anterior corticospinal tract, the 31 corticobulbar tract (all of which originate in the cerebral cortex), and from the brainstem: the rubrospinal, reticulospinal, tectospinal, and vestibulospinal tracts.
