20 Neurology books for students and curious
The brain and its functioning have been studied in many branches and scientific disciplines. Psychology, biology, medicine and the multiple branches that compose them have had to make great efforts over the years to gather a solid body of knowledge that allows professionals working in it to work.
Of these different professionals, from the medical field emphasizes the specialty in the study of neurons and the nervous system, also known as neurology.
A selection of neurology books
For the group of professionals responsible for investigating and intervening in the nervous system it is very helpful to have several manuals and neurology books that gather the knowledge gathered through the years.
With the purpose of being an aid for these students and professionals of neuroscience, as well as for other related disciplines or even to approach these subjects to those who do not dedicate themselves to it, We present a score of books that can be very useful for the study of the subject .
1. Clinical Neurology (Bradley, W.G., Daroff, R.B., Fenichel, G.M. & Jankovic, J.)
