This concise, updated compact Third Edition of The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates provides student-friendly, coronal section diagrams of the most widely used mammalian in neuroscience. The material presented is based upon current acceptance of nomenclature and delineations meticulously placed for the researcher's convenience. In one compact source, the author's have presented an accurate, convenient, and transportable reference for students, teachers, and researchers. NON-TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION This compact edition of The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates presents 76 coronal diagrams on stereotaxic grids in a compact, easy-to-carry format that will lend itself easily to students. Each compact atlas will contain a CD-ROM for viewing and personalising.
Features: * 76 coronal sections with abbreviated and shortened explanations on each diagram * Each diagram contains a miniature sagittal drawing to illustrate the orientation of the section in the antero-posterior dimension * Updated and revised delineations and nomenclature * Two additional spinal cord drawings showing many more levels than presented in the second edition * Lab-friendly size and construction CD-ROM FEATURES * 76 labelled sections of the coronal brain and two spinal cord sections * Three sets of unlabelled coronal sections at varying magnifications: 100%, 50%, and 25% * Each diagram can be magnified or reduced by a factor of 25% to personalise * An index is included that allows the reader to locate any diagram by selecting a particular entry in the index of structures or by simply typing the name of the desired structure * Multi-platform CD for use on both Macintosh and PCs

Review quote

"This book provides precise coordinates and accurately identifies the important features of rat's brain... The atlas is well organized with excellent diagrams and a miniature sagittal drawing accompanying each diagram... Welcome changes in the new edition are a reduced size and the revised nomenclature and abbreviations which are easy to follow and avoids identical abbreviations for different structures... The accompanying CD is also of great help... The earlier edition was one of the most cited books, but this revised edition will definitely be more appreciated... This compact edition of the atlas is a very well illustrated reference on the stereotaxic coordinates of the brain and would be a very valuable addition to the library."--SAUDI MEDICAL JOURNAL"The newest edition of The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates is a phenomenally useful research tool. It provides a complete and highly accurate map of the entire rat CNS. The CD version has proven to be highly practical. Quickly, we can generate brain drawings that are easily modified and can be used in scientific publications. My only regret is it cannot write the papers for our research studies."--ARTHUR D. LOEWY, Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri
