hi guys
I'm not a very fan of neuroanatomy- but i strongly recommend you to go for the high yield neuroanatomy at least these chapters:

Chapter 5: blood supply
Chapter 10: Brain Stem
Chapter 16: Lesions of the Brain Stem

Memorize cross sections -> Memorize their blood supply -> memorize the area affected / in case of ischemia/ -> conect it with subsequent clinical presentation.


I know it's very very forgetfull, but do i once by heart and that questions like these will help us to retain it as long we need


P.S. if anyone is interested i can send HYN 4'th one pdf
