    Netter’s Atlas of Neuroscience by UMHS Associate Dean of Clinical Sciences, Professor of Neuroscience and world-renowned neuroscientist Dr. David Felten was listed as among the “10 Best Neuroscience Textbooks” by the website

    'NETTER'S ATLAS OF NEUROSCIENCE' MAKES 10 BEST LIST: UMHS professor Dr. David Felten's textbook 'Netter's Atlas of Neuroscience, 3rd Edition' on video review list of 'The 10 Best Neuroscience Textbooks' on the site (screenshot of site). Full video is included at the end of this post.

    The UMHS Endeavour takes a short look at the post on the website and YouTube video. We also spoke to Dr. Felten about the book.

    #2 on ‘The 10 Best Neuroscience Textbooks’ List 

    Dr. David Felten of UMHSIn a July 17, 2018 post “The 10 Best Neuroscience Textbooks,” reviewer Quincy Miller wrote the following about Dr. David Felten’s textbook Netter’s Atlas of Neuroscience, co-written by M. Kerry O’Banion and Mary Summo Maida, “Anyone preparing for a big exam should have Netter’s Atlas handy, as it takes a deep dive into every part of the body that impacts the brain’s function, including the spinal cord and peripheral nerves. Plus, there are several 3D reconstructions to make things even clearer.”

    Mr. Miller also noted the book is “filled with short and useful tables,” “covers both structure and function” and has “plenty of interesting radiographs.”

    The full review is also included in the video “The 10 Best Neuroscience Textbooks of 2018” on the Ezvid Wiki Youtube channel.

    In the introduction to the list, the author wrote “anyone looking to pursue a career plumbing the depths of the human psyche should start with one of these neuroscience textbooks.” Among the textbooks on the list are such titles as The Pathology of Behavior and Mental Illness, The Student’s Guide to Cognitive Neuroscience, Behavioral Neuroscience and the #1 title, The Principles of Neural Science.

    In a rave review published in 2016 on the British Medical Association’s website, the BMA wrote that the “new edition of Netter’s Atlas of Neuroscience combines the didactic, well-loved illustrations of Dr. Frank Netter with succinct text and clinical points, providing a highly visual, clinically oriented guide to the most important topics in this subject.”

    Dr. Felten spoke to the Endeavour about being included in the “10 Best Neurosciences Textbooks of 2018” list.

    “We are particularly pleased that the Wiki Award notes that Netter’s Atlas of Neuroscience, 3rd edition, is a particularly helpful resource for students preparing for big exams,” Dr. Felten said. “That has always been a goal of Netter’s Atlases in general, and Netter’s Atlas of Neuroscience in specific.”

    Dr. Felten said he and his team of co-writers are already putting together plans for the fourth edition of the book, an effort “which is likely to be a project of two or more years’ effort.”
