The complexity of the brain, the house of human consciousness, is so great that scientists are still mystified as to how it works. For a student, learning the various cellular organizations, cranial nerves, and neural connections can be an intimidating challenge. The Human Brain Coloring Workbook is a break-through approach to understanding the brain's organization and functions. It features 125 striking, computer-generated illustrations that will help students gain a clear and enduring comprehension of this highly intricate structure. Learning interactively through coloring thoroughly fixes concepts in the mind and takes less time than memorizing from textbooks. The ideas behind each lesson are amply explained, and more complex subjects are approached through the gradual introduction of simple drawings. After completing the lessons in this book, not only will you understand the brain's basic configurations and functions, you will also have a fully colored and labeled resource ready for review whenever you need to brush up. This book is an invaluable and lasting resource for students in a number of disciplines, including medicine, anatomy and physiology, biology, psychology, nursing, rehabilitation, health administration, medical technology, and nutrition.

Fractured Minds introduces the reader to clinical neuropsychology through vivid case descriptions of adults who have suffered brain damage. At one level, this is a book about the courage, humor, and determination to triumph over illness and disability that many "ordinary people" demonstrate when coping with the extraordinary stress of a brain disorder. On another level, it is a well-referenced and up-to-date textbook that provides a holistic view of the practice of clinical neuropsychology. Included are reader-friendly descriptions and explanations of a wide range of neurological disorders and neuroscientific concepts. Two introductory chapters are followed by 17 chapters that each focus on a specific disorder and include research, clinical assessment, rehabilitation, and a detailed case study. Disorders range across the full spectrum from common ones such as traumatic brain injury and dementia, to rare disorders such as autotopagnosia. Each of the 16 chapters retained from the first edition has been revised to reflect current research and clinical advances. Three new chapters on multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and Huntington's disease incorporate discussion of important current topics such as genetically-transmitted diseases, genetic counseling, gene transplantation, functional neurosurgery, and the complex ethical issues that go hand-in-hand with these new techniques. This informative and engaging book will be of interest to students of clinical psychology, neuropsychology, and neurology, health professionals who work with neurological patients, neurological patients and their families, and lay readers who are simply fascinated by the mind and brain.
