Useful Review of General Neuroscience Topics

Overall the content of this book is well put together. I would not recommend this book to just anyone who just wants to learn about neuroscience unless they have an understanding of anatomy. The book uses too many technical anatomical words, without explaiation, for the uinitiated to follow. I would recommend this book to anyone who has had a class in anatomy or neuroscience and wants a refresher.

A good listen especially if supplemented with some visual info or an illustrated text book

I think the authors did very well considering this is a difficult topic to grasp without visual accompaniment. I've listened to several of the books in this series and found that I needed to supplement this one with further sources of info than some of the other courses but it is good to supplement any learning with additional reading & video clips so not a criticism.
Good narration and she must surely be entitled to a medical degree by now!
I like the familiar format of each book and always value the quick tests at the end of each chapter and the summative end of book test. It is useful to dip back into the book from time to time in order to retain what you've learned.
