Chemoarchitectonic Atlas of the Rat Brainstem is the most comprehensive atlas of the rat brainstem ever published, featuring 243 fully labeled large photographs of the brainstem. It identifies brains structure not only on the conventional Nissl-stained sections, but also on an additional six stains of interest to neuroscientists. Scientists will no longer need to search journals in the hope that they may obtain some information about the distribution of the vital substances presented in this book. Chemoarchitectonic Atlas of the Rat Brainstem comprehensively displays them and concurrently sets new standards of accuracy in the delineations of brain regions.

Review quote

...The purpose is to present the distribution of seven substrates of emerging or enduring interest in pictures, and in so doing delineate the entire brain on the basis of the architecture of these chemicals. This is a highly valuable contribution to neuroanatomy. The objectives are successfully met in this book... everything that can be expected is in this book. The principal author is a preeminent authority on rodent neuroanatomy... All the photographs are accompanied by a full list of abbreviations, making the atlas easy to use...This atlas is a very valuable addition to our knowledge of rodent anatomy. It is a high quality reference... - RATED 4 STARS! --Ben Roitberg, MD, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine for DOODY'S PUBLISHING REVIEWS (1999)
