Overview

The 3rd Edition of this popular atlas offers you a systematic approach to the gross anatomy of the brain, spinal cord, and the brainstem. With an emphasis on major structures and concepts, and a careful selection of photographed sections, explanatory diagrams, and brief text, you'll find the guidance you need to better understand this complex subject. Unlabelled photographs juxtaposed with faded-out versions of the same photographs with important structures outlined and labelled allows you to view a section as you would in real life.

• Shows unlabelled and labelled photographs and diagrams of brain sections on the same page
• Incorporates diagrams of the functional systems of the CNS with actual brain and spinal cord sections
• Includes a glossary of over 260 terms mentioned in the book that elucidates every part of the atlas

• Features enlarged section photographs that provide increased clarity of structures and detail for easier viewing.
• Includes color in previously black and white photographs in the opening "guided tour" summaries allowing you to follow and interpret what you see more clearly.
• Presents new material on meninges · ventricles · and blood supply to increase your knowledge of brain function and activity.
• Combines substantially expanded clinical coverage with angiograms for a better understanding of the anatomy.
• Provides an illustrated glossary containing 152 color images.
