Neuroanatomy: Draw It to Know It, Third 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 and illustrations from many other classic texts to enhance the learning experience. In the third edition of this now-classic text, the author completely reorganized the book based on user-feedback, taking a more intuitive and easy-to-use approach. For the first time, the illustrations are in full color. 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.

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.
