This chapter reviews the function associated with neuroanatomical fact. Various concepts such as blood flow, cerebrospinal fluid drainage, vertebral nerve sensory and motor level, and nuclear centers are discussed. Furthermore, a general relation of structural dysfunction with disease is conveyed to the reader in order to maximize daily application and retention of this content. A thorough understanding of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology is an essential tool in the armamentarium of an anesthesiologist. When caring for the patient with a potential neurologic insult utilizing various modalities such as transcranial dopplers in the intensive care unit (ICU) setting or the use of somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs) in the operating room (OR) provides critical insight into the basic mechanisms of the underlying disease processes and guides further therapeutic intervention.
