Default Struggling with neuroanatomy

Hi all

I am having a hard time with neuroanatomy. I am trying to watch the Kaplan videos (one with green color background) and follow their book, but he is pretty much just reading from the book and not explaining things (at least for me).

Any other suggestions? Thank you

Neuroanatomy is a hard topic to master and yes that teacher from kaplan just read through the notes blankly without even bothering to explain, so from what I have learned from this forums is that
  1. High Yeild Neuroanatomy Book
  2. Tryto do Neuroanatomy from other sources like Dr Najeeb or DIT Videos

And after all what is most important is to incorporate all those data into your FA and then to memorize it

Thank you very much CleverFox. I looked at DIT for cranial nerves and he went really fast, I was pausing that video a lot. But it did help. I will look through their others and Dr Najeeb.

After spending several days with spinal cord and its lesions I am ok with this topic. But still finding the rest (medulla on up plus cerebellum, cerebrum, etc hard).

Oh God am going through the exact same struggle right now! Am trying to watch the Kaplan videos, but i just feel like it isnt adding anything and wasting my time.
Am trying my best to just keep on going through the notes even if i have to slow down a bit.

Use high yield neuroanatomy guys. I found it really difficult with kaplan until I got the high yield neuroanatomy.
