: Medical Neuroscience, a title in Hayes Barton Press's Integrated Medical Sciences series, provides basic knowledge about the nervous system to students in the health sciences. The authors' goal in the second edition is to bridge the basic science curriculum with clinical practice. To this end, two new chapters have been added that expand the coverage of clinical topics in neuroscience--Life Span Development of the Brain and Neural Basis of Anxiety and Depression. All of the chapters include new clinical topics and have been updated. The reference sections have been expanded and include research articles that support the scientific foundation for each chapter, landmark research articles that give historical perspective, and Internet resources that contain valuable information for students, patients, and practitioners.
