Hardcover (Print)
Not Available on BN.com
 

Overview

This unique atlas of the human brain correlates classical studies of post mortem tissue with the in situ, cross-sectional brain and MRIs of the same brain in vitro with in vivo images from living individuals. The atlas contains a series of maps, each featuring different aspects of brain morphology and topography. The atlas is divided into two sections: the Topographic and Topometric Atlas and the Myeloarchitectonic Atlas.
Topographic and Topometric Atlas:
This atlas presents the surface anatomy of the brain over a topometric grid, together with corresponding in situ sections of the entire head, placed on stereotaxic grids.
* Sections are cut at regular, 1-cm thick intervals in all planes of section
* Both sides of section are shown
* Includes corresponding X-rays and MRIs of the same head and an in vivo MRI from a healthy volunteer
Myeloarchitectonic Atlas:
This atlas presents 69 myelin-stained sections cut perpendicular to the intercommissural line depicting mainly subcortical structures. Each plate has corresponding schematic diagrams defining position, extent, and relationship of nuclei and pathways of the forebrain and mesencephalon.
* The most comprehensive delineations available; suitable for mapping of neurotransmitters, neuropeptides, and receptors
* Sections are from a reference brain used by preeminent neuroanatomists: Vogts, Brockhaus, Hassler, Wahren, Hopf, and Sanides
* Includes 4 pages of 36 reduced figures showing gyrification and subcortical detail

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some two-color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Presents a series of maps featuring different aspects of brain morphology and topography. The surface anatomy of each brain is presented in the Talairach coordinate space (the Talairach atlas is becoming the standard with regard to stereotaxic space) together with the exact location of the sections. The topographic and topometric atlas in part one consists of serial macroscopic sections of MRI- scanned human heads. The myeloarchitectonic atlas in part two consists of 69 photographs of myelin-stained coronal sections placed opposite to the corresponding schematic diagrams.
