For neuroscientists, particularly those studying neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and molecular biology, a detailed atlas of the rat brain is essential for any laboratory. This updated edition of Brain Maps: Structure of the Rat Brain provides atlas maps aligned in 3-dimensional space and created using color photomicrographs of histological sections based on a single rat brain. Where other atlases use multiple brains as models, the use of a single brain allows for true 3-D reconstruction. The atlas employs color coding of the major parts of the brain and extends this coding system to the atlas levels, flatmaps, and nomenclature tables for easier reference. With systematic nomenclature tables, references to the primary research literature for all of the structures, and coverage of the neuroanatomical methods and mapping, this is a reference every laboratory should have on-hand.
