Human Brain Coloring Workbook (Princeton Review)
Synopses & Reviews
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.
The 125 plates in the book are organized in the following sections:
*Central Nervous System Development
*The Cerebral Hemispheres
*The Cranial Nerves
*The Ventricular System and Cerebrospinal Fluid
*The Limbic System
*The Thalamic Complex
*The Basal Ganglia
*The Cerebrovascular System
*The Autonomic Nervous System
*The Ascending and Descending Neuronal Tracts
*Atlas of Human Brain Sections
Provides an interactive approach to learning that appeals to students on programmes ranging from Allied Health and Nursing, to Psychology and Neuroscience.
