Visually Memorable Neuroanatomy for Beginners takes a close look at the anatomy of the human brain and teaches readers in a relatable way to identify and examine its structures. In contrast to large textbooks that deliver a superficial overview of the subject, this book explores the anatomy and physiology of the brain using mnemonic techniques and informative comic figures that presents brain regions at an introductory level. This volume is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and researchers in medicine, and the health and biological sciences.
- Features simplified illustrations to help readers understand complicated neuroanatomy structures
- Introduces memorizing tips (mnemonics) to help students learn
- Describes how to best identify structures in cadaver specimens
- Includes comic-style figures to make neuroanatomy approachable for newcomers
Dr. Min Suk Chung is Professor in the Department of Anatomy at Ajou University School of Medicine in Suwon, South Korea. He received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from Yonsei University. With financial support of the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information, he launched Visible Korean (2000) to improve quantity and quality of the initial Visible Human Project (1991). He wishes, in the near future, to form a virtual image library capable of convenient and fast access for selecting images and downloading, which will include all data sets from the United States, Korea, and China. He is a visiting scholar at Stanford University and has a passion for outlining anatomical structures to facilitate medical learning and clinical practice.
Chung, Beom Sun
Dr. Beom Sun Chung received his MD degree from Soonchunhyang University and is currently a MS/PhD student at Ajou University School of Medicine in South Korea. He is interested in anatomy education content (in particular the digital anatomy of the nervous system) and is a Teaching Assistant in the Department of Anatomy. His current research is focused on producing three-dimensional anatomical models for studying the effects of electromagnetic waves on the central and peripheral nervous systems, in cooperation with Swiss scientists of IT'IS Foundation (NEUROMAN project).
