Although today's young neurosurgeons have at their disposal sophisticated surgical neuronavigation tools, they nevertheless still need the basic anatomical knowledge which is indispensable to understanding and executing a classic cranial approach.

The basic anatomy described in this chapter is by no means exhaustive but it is intended to serve as a working basis and to stimulate thought about the major role that the Anatomy Laboratory should play in any neurosurgery training program.
