i have taken the inspiration for this from the neonatal icu forum. i thought that we might like to exchange booklists and recommended articles.
please add to this thread - this is about sharing information on what we have found helpful to learn and understand this fascinating discipline.
my stand-by neuro books are:-
the clinical practice of neurological and neurosurgical nursing
neurology and neurosurgery illustrated
lindsay k. bone i and callander r. (churchhill livingstone)
i always enjoyed reading
jamieson's first notebook of head injuries
if you can get your hands on this one it is a hoot!! the author sprinkled the text with funny little limericks as memonics - one of the better books now sadly out of print but one of those where much of the information is timeless.

Hickey was going to be my choice so I guess we can give it a second vote!

May I suggest Adams and Victor's Principles of Neurology? Excellent neuroanatomy and physiology on the first part.

Hi! I'll be interviewing for a new grad training program in a neurosurgery department very soon. I'd welcome any feedback regarding how you got into the field, what you like most about it, what you like least, what advice you would give a new grad, what situations do you usually encounter, would this be a good place to start a career, etc.
Thank you in advance for your replies!
