The Rhesus Monkey Brain in Sterotaxic Coordinates
The Rhesus Monkey Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates is the most comprehensive, detailed atlas of the monkey brain ever constructed. The first chapter, Photographic and Diagrammatic Atlas of the Rhesus Monkey Brain, presents 151 plates illustrating the subcortex and parts of the cortex in high magnification, and 151 corresponding diagrams complementing each image. The second chapter, Delineation of the Rhesus Monkey Cortex on the Basis of the Distribution of a Neurofilament Protein, consists of 64 fully labeled plates depicting an entire hemisphere. Jointly, the two chapters constitute the most serious morphological work ever undertaken on the monkey.
