About the Authors
  • Cranial nerves are involved in head and neck function, and processes such as eating, speech and facial expression. This clinically oriented survey of cranial nerve anatomy and function was written for students of medicine, dentistry and speech therapy, but will also be useful for postgraduate physicians and GPs, and specialists in head and neck healthcare (surgeons, dentists, speech therapists etc.). After an introductory section surveying cranial nerve organisation and tricky basics such as ganglia, nuclei and brain stem pathways, the nerves are considered in functional groups: (1) for chewing and facial sensation; (2) for pharynx and larynx, swallowing and phonation; (3) autonomic components, taste and smell; (4) vision and eye movements; and (5) hearing and balance. In each chapter, the main anatomical features of each nerve are followed by clinical aspects and details of clinical testing. Simple line diagrams accompany the text. Detailed anatomy is not given.

    • Contains sections on cranial nerve organisation and on how to test cranial nerves
    • Nerves considered in functional groups, not simply I-XII
    • Simply and clearly illustrated throughout with line drawings

    There is no shortcut to success, whoever said that must read it once. This book comprises both anatomy as well as phsiology, the only thing missing colored diagrams. With any colored Atlas, its superb.
