The following textbooks may often contain a specific chapter on a particular lecture topic – you are not required to read all of them, but you may find that a particular textbook “style” suits you better than another. There are specific Neuroanatomy textbooks which may provide more detail on structure rather than function.
The first section contains textbooks suitable for level 2 lectures, with more advanced/detailed information available in the textbooks in the second section.
