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.

• Offers a bonus CD-ROM of all the images from the book—with and without labels— downloadable to PowerPoint™.

Diagnostic images, artists' renderings, pathology samples & schematics show sections, review functions, etc.

    Great Text!

    Great text, I used it for medical school neurosceince anatomy of the CNS. It was very usefuel because it is the text my class followed, but the pictures and diagrams are great, has every type of cross section needed. Also includes a chapter that builds the brain comprehensively starting with the ventricles and the thalamus and the center areas. Helpful for anyone who has to take an exam of the brain in cross section, coronal or saggital!
