An atlas of the human brain that correlates studies of post mortem tissue with the "in situ", cross-sectional brain and MRIs of the same brain in situ with "in vivo" images from normal volunteers. This atlas contains a series of maps, each featuring different aspects of brain morphology and topography. The atlas is divided into two sections: the "Topographic and Topmetric Atlas" and the "Myeloarchitectonic Atlas". The "Topographic and Topometric Atlas" presents the surface anatomy of the brain over a topometric grid, together with corresponding "in situ" sections of the entire head, placed on stereotaxic grids. The "Myueloarchitectonic Atlas" presents 69 myelin-stained sections cut perpendicular to the intercommissural line depicting mainly subcortical structures. Each plate has corresponding schematic diagrams defining position, extent, and relationship of nuclei and pathways of the forebrain and mesencephalon.
