A new comprehensive edition of a standard work, detailing and illustrating the organization, structure, function and connectivity of all individual brainstem nuclei The new revised and extended edition of this standard work retains all the original and unique low- and high-power photographs which document the organization of the human brainstem as well as the individual character of the neurons of each nucleus. Many structural differences are described in neuronal groups, indicating as yet unrecognized functional differences. Furthermore unique details of the neuronal organization and cytoarchitecture are featured, providing clues to the functional properties of the cell groups and stimulating research projects. Nomenclature and nuclear borders have been updated and new sections have been added describing the function and connectivity of each nucleus. For neuroscientists and neurologists this atlas provides an invaluable and complete source of reference for both their scientific research and everyday clinicalpractice. Neuropathologists, neuroradiologists, neuropsychologists, neurosurgeons as well as physiologists and physicians will find the combination of low-power brainstem imaging with cytological, physiological and neuroanatomical data highly relevant. In addition, the atlas offers researchers in other disciplines the opportunity to discover new correlations between structure and function, outlining new functional regions in the brainstem.
