Overview

The intricacies of the human nervous system are of great intellectual and practical interest and importance and are the subject of a large number of life sciences and medical school courses worldwide.

The Brain Atlas: A Visual Guide to the Human Central Nervous System  truly integrates modern neuroscience with clinical practice and is now completely revised and updated in its Third Edition. Now more than ever, it is the best available visual guide to human neuroanatomy for undergraduate and graduate medical students, clinicians and psychologists.

It flows logically from surface anatomy to cross-sections, and then on to regional histology, ending with diagrams of the major neuronal systems responsible for the brain's magnificent array of functions. The book's five sections cover Background Information, The Brain and Its Blood, Brain Slices, Histological Sections, and Pathways.

The Brain Atlas: A Visual Guide to the Human Central Nervous System, Third Edition  features:

  • A large number of new images reflecting the latest updates in imaging equipment and techniques
  • Unrivalled treatment of brain pathways, including meticulous blood supply maps
  • Systematic use of magnetic resonance images side-by-side with corresponding brain slices
  • A direct labeling system, including an alphabetical list of terms for each image

From the reviews of the Second Edition: 

“… an essential requirement for the library of any individual who works in the field... if you buy only one atlas, this is the one to buy." JOURNAL OF NEUROSURGERY

“… an excellent tool for understanding the central nervous system. It is a good companion at every level of training and for health care professionals." ARCHIVES OF NEUROLOGY

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: Visualization is essential in any anatomical science. It is even more important for neuroanatomy, where three-dimensional incorporation of information is of utmost relevance. Now in its third edition, this brain atlas incorporates new concepts and images into its armamentarium.
Purpose: The purpose is to address current imaging technologies for the study of central nervous system anatomy.
Audience: Neurologists, neuroscientists, and neurosurgeons are the main audience. The authors are credible authorities who each have over 30 years of experience.
Features: Similar to the previous editions, this atlas incorporates known neuroanatomical concepts and integrates current neuroradiological images to better explain concepts that would otherwise be hard to understand. However, the external carotid artery branches were omitted. Since many of its branches are crucial in processes of neovascularization of the central nervous system, and arteries such as the superficial temporal is involved in major neurosurgical procedures, it would be important in future editions to have this neurovascular structure better represented. Otherwise, I see no drawbacks.
Assessment: This is a traditional atlas and excellent contribution to the neurosciences. It should be included in any neurosurgical, neurological, or neurosciences departmental libraries.
From the Publisher
"The Brain Atlas serves as an authoritative reference work and learning tool for the brain and central nervous system. The work is essential fo rthe personal libraries of students, practioners, and researchers in neuroscience biology, psychiatry, and psychology, among other disciplines, as well as for libraries supporting both undergraduate and graduate course in school of medicine or health care facilities. The Brain Atlas is a worthwhile addition to any such collection, either as a replacement of or supplement to previous editions of the title." (E-Streams, December 2008)

"This reference book will serve as an outstanding resource for all students of neuroscience … .This Atlas will become a much sought after companion." (Journal of Tropical Pediatrics, August 2008)

"…excellent contribution to the neurosciences. It should be included in any neurosurgical, neurological, or neurosciences departmental libraries." (Doody's Book Reviews)
