Had read this book as a medical student, and wanted to review basic embryology of the nervous system.

Incredibly helpful text
This book was a great find! It has really excellent images, is clear, concise, and the best embryology text I've found. The Simbryo cd is a great added bonus too. It really helped in getting a quick visualization of some of the more difficult concepts.
