Each case has been designed for the iPad and iPhone/iPod with interactive features.


“The myth of the difficulty of the neurosciences for the average medical student is dispensed with this [app]….This is a very useful [app] for health science students. The integration of real-life clinical cases with neuroscience concepts helps students to focus on the important aspects. This is a superb contribution to the field with little in common with other review books [and apps] in this field. 4 Stars!”

Doody’s Review Service

“This [app] is extraordinary. The clinical cases are engaging and enjoyable to read, maximizing the absorption of valuable clinical information. I recommend this [app] to all medical students on clinical rotations.” 

Lance E. Davis, medical student, University of Texas, Southwestern Medical School
