Excerpts
Flap Copy
The Brain Atlas flows logically from surface anatomy to cross-sections to regional histology, ending with diagrams of the major neuronal systems. Features of the Third Edition include:All new clinical images obtained using the latest imaging technologyA direct labeling system of key structures with a separate alphabetical list of these terms to speed identification in each figureAn unrivaled treatment of brain pathways, using clear color graphics to trace pathways on actual brain slicesMagnetic resonance images that face corresponding brain slices and sections permit direct comparison and accurate identificationWith these new updated features, the Third Edition continues to be the unsurpassed visual guide to human neuroanatomy for students, researchers, and practitioners in neuroanatomy, neurology, neuroscience, psychiatry, medicine, and psychology.

Review Quotes
" 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 )
