So I am studying for Step 1 and I am interested in what others have experienced with Neuroanatomy on their exams. I know the pathways, CT/MRI scans are HY but reading HY neuroanatomy is just plain disturbing:eek:Many random nuclei and pathways, GVS,GVA,GVS, etc are just making me go insane. I can reason out lesions but memorizing all these other random information is just killing me. Should I focus on the major tracts, be able to identify lesions, be able to point out the names of specific parts of the brain on CT/MRI and call it a day. What else should I focus on? Please let me know. Thank you.

Look at the Kaplan anatomy lecture notes neuro sections. They'll show you what you need to know.
