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)
