What is Neuroanatomy?
The human body consists of numerous tissues and organs that are diverse in structure and function. Yet they function together, and in harmony, for the well being of the body as a whole. It is obvious that there has to be some kind of influence that monitors and controls the working of different parts of the body. Although there are other mechanisms that help in such control (e.g. hormones) the overwhelming role in directing the activities of the body rests with the nervous system. Neuroanatomy is the study of the structural aspects of the nervous system. It cannot be emphasised too strongly that the study of structure is meaningless unless correlated with function. Division of a study of the nervous system into neuroanatomy and neurophysiology is only a matter of convenience.
