Concise chapter summaries, clinical correlates boxes, clinical problems, and a clear, concise writing style make the subject matter accessible to students and relevant to instructors. The new edition features more than 100 new and updated illustrations, additional clinical images and photos of early embryologic development, an expanded chapter on the cardiovascular system, and the latest information on molecular biology and genetics. Clinical Correlates boxes illustrated by cases and images cover birth defects, developmental abnormalities, and other clinical phenomena. More than 400 illustrations--including full-color line drawings, scanning electron micrographs, and clinical images--clarify key aspects of embryonic development. Basic genetic molecular biology principles are highlighted throughout the text to link embryology to other critical specialties. Chapter Overview figures provide a visually compelling introduction to each chapter. Problems to Solve (with detailed answers at the back of the book) help you assess your understanding. An expanded glossary defines key terms and concepts. An online interactive USMLE-style Question Bank helps you review for exams and prepare for the Boards.Read Less

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.
