Neuroanatomy: Draw It to Know It, Second Edition teaches neuroanatomy in a purely kinesthetic way. In using this book, the reader draws each neuroanatomical pathway and structure, and in the process, creates memorable and reproducible schematics for the various learning points in Neuroanatomy in a hands-on, enjoyable and highly effective manner. In addition to this unique method, Neuroanatomy: Draw it to Know It also provides a remarkable repository of reference materials, including numerous anatomic and radiographic brain images, muscle-testing photographs, and illustrations from many other classic texts, which enhance the learning experience. In the second edition of this new classic, the Second Edition adds "Know-It" points to each chapter, providing high yield learning methods which separate the essential from the advanced topics. No other text in neuroanatomy engages the reader in as direct a manner as this book and none covers the advanced level of detail found while retaining the simplistic approach to the learning which has become the cornerstone of the text. Neuroanatomy: Draw It to Know It is singular in its ability to engage and instruct without overwhelming any level of neuroanatomy student. The most effective model for learning neuroanatomy is Neuroanatomy: Draw It to Know It.

Dr. Fisch is a board certified neurologist who teaches neuroanatomy to medical students, residents, and fellows at Washington University in St. Louis and the Indiana University School of Medicine. He received his undergraduate degree in English from the University of Pennsylvania, his medical degree from the Indiana University School of Medicine, and did his neurology residency training at Washington University in St. Louis. Dr. Fisch's mentor in neuroanatomy, the late William DeMyer, MD, from the Indiana University School of Medicine, strongly believed: if you can't draw it, you don't know it.
