The eleventh edition of Adams and Victor's Principles of Neurology is now live on AccessMedicine and AccessNeurology. First published by McGraw Hill in 1977, the namesake author of the original text was Raymond Adams, who chaired the MGH Department of Neurology for over 25 years and was widely regarded as the most pre-eminent American neurologist of the 20th century. Ray Adams was instrumental in founding the field of children's neurology in the early 1950s; was a key figure in the creation of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Research Center for Mental Retardation; was elected fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1955; and along with Australian neurologist James Waldo Lance, described posthypoxic myoclonus, later called Lance-Adams syndrome.
Adams and his cohort, Maurice Victor, began working together early in their careers at Boston City Hospital and co-author more than 100 papers together, along with the first six editions of this text. Maurice Victor was a distinguished neurologist in his own right and made important contributions to the understanding of neurological complications of alcoholism and malnutrition.
Adams and Victor's Principles of Neurology has since become the most recognized foundational textbook in clinical neurology throughout the world. The eleventh edition covers important innovations in the treatment of neurologic conditions and new research and understanding of the genetic basis of neurologic disease, including:
Deciphering the link between the human brain and behavior has always been one of the most intriguing—and often challenging—aspects of scientific endeavor. The sequencing of the human genome, and advances in molecular biology, have illuminated the pathogenesis of many neurological diseases and have propelled our knowledge of how the brain controls behavior.
To grasp the wider implications of these developments and gain a fundamental understanding of this dynamic, fast-moving field, Principles of Neural Science stands alone as the most authoritative and indispensible resource of its kind.
In this classic text, prominent researchers in the field expertly survey the entire spectrum of neural science, giving an up-to-date, unparalleled view of the discipline for anyone who studies brain and mind. Here, in one remarkable volume, is the current state of neural science knowledge—ranging from molecules and cells, to anatomic structures and systems, to the senses and cognitive functions—all supported by more than 900 precise, full-color illustrations. In addition to clarifying complex topics, the book also benefits from a cohesive organization, beginning with an insightful overview of the interrelationships between the brain, nervous system, genes, and behavior. Principles of Neural Science then proceeds with an in-depth examination of the molecular and cellular biology of nerve cells, synaptic transmission, and the neural basis of cognition. The remaining sections illuminate how cells, molecules, and systems give us sight, hearing, touch, movement, thought, learning, memories, and emotions.
The new fifth edition of Principles of Neural Science is thoroughly updated to reflect the tremendous amount of research, and the very latest clinical perspectives, that have significantly transformed the field within the last decade.
Ultimately, Principles of Neural Science affirms that all behavior is an expression of neural activity, and that the future of clinical neurology and psychiatry hinges on the progress of neural science. Far exceeding the scope and scholarship of similar texts, this unmatched guide offers a commanding, scientifically rigorous perspective on the molecular mechanisms of neural function and disease—one that you’ll continually rely on to advance your comprehension of brain, mind, and behavior.
