What neuroscience books are best? How about Haines' Neuroanatomy Atlas? How about Purves' Neuroscience? BRS vs. High Yield?

Blumenfeld is good - very clinically oriented

I like Haines atlas better than Purves and High Yield seems sufficient for review. It is very clear and concise. The only downfall is there are no questions at the end of the chapters like in BRS so if you are looking for questions, you might prefer BRS.

Although I havn't used it yet, Haines has a companion review book (cover looks a lot like the atlas cover) that has 800+ review questions. The review book parallels/crossreferences the textbook as well. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0443066256/qid=1110983278/sr=11-1/ref=sr_11_1/002-6059098-0374466

Try Nolte's "The Human Brain" and the Netter atlas isn't bad.

Textbook: Principles of Neural Science 4th ed. Eric Kandel--By far the best (the Robbins of Neuro) :)
Atlas: Haines and Nolte, Netter---ehhhh, its's okay
Review: Hi Yield--hands down

I didn't like Purves much... the organization wasn't the best and the content was sometimes too detailed or too basic compared to our lectures.

At KU, they recommend Clinical Neuroanatomy by Waxman. We just started neuro and I haven't read it much, but it seems to be useful. not too big and it has questions and cases. Also, anyone used the Pretest Neuroscience? any opinions?

thanks

I've poked around in it. Not quite comprehensive enough for my course, but we are one of the last schools with a full semester of neuro, so it gets pretty in depth. I plan to use it for the shelf though.

This is the neuroscience bible. While it's not nearly as clinical as others, it's an invaluable resource--especially since it is somehow able to be both thorough and easy-to-understand at the same time.
