This new edition of The Netter Collection of Medical Illustrations: Nervous System recognizes the enduring nature of Dr. Frank Netter's incomparable artistic genius and his immense educational vision. Dr. Netter's initial atlas dedicated to neurology, first published in 1957, provided a very concise introduction to the nervous system for generations of students of medicine and the health sciences. His ability to simplify the essentials of very important components, namely the cerebral cortex and diencephalon, the complexities of the hypothalamus, fiber tracts within the brainstem and spinal cord, the cranial nerves, and the peripheral motor-sensory unit, was very remarkable. Furthermore, Dr. Netter's illustrations are absolutely outstanding in comparison to those available in other texts. His paintings are as vital today as at their artistic inception.
