Brain mapping has forever altered and extended our understanding of the systems of the brain. The integrative capacity of brain maps enables the inclusion of a diverse array of observations and experimental results. Maps are used to describe brain structure, function, and connectivity, to catalog the ever-expanding knowledge base of human and animal nervous systems, to compare healthy tissue with diseased tissue, and to show detailed subsystems and circuits.Brain Mapping: The Systems is a compilation of the current research and developments in brain mapping. This book, the second in a series, provides an encyclopedic survey of brain maps characterizing the specific systems of the brain. It is a natural companion to Brain Mapping: The Methods because it describes the use of these techniques to create maps of the normal brain. It is an essential resource for all scientists, clinicians, and students interested in brain mapping.

Review Text

"a delightfully readable and reasonably comprehensive review of the vast array of investigations seeking to map mind and brain. The figures are magnificent, both in their beauty and their effectiveness in conveying key concepts. ...will remain an important resource regarding the history of the field and the issues that must be faced in designing and interpreting brain mapping experiments. ... Brain Mapping: The Systems superbly archives the history of brain mapping. ...provides the reader with a uniquely expansive perspective on brain mapping. The authors span many nations and several disciplines; the result is a sweeping view of the field."
