Long awaited, the Third Edition represents a thorough revision of this widely-used atlas. It takes into account the advances in computer-assisted brain-imaging techniques that do not restrict the plane of study and the recent progress in identifying and localizing putative neurotransmitters and neuromodulators in the brain. New sections offer coronal views of the gross brain and brain stem, biochemical neuroanatomy, magnetic resonance images, and recent computerized tomographic scans. In addition, many refinements have been made in the illustrations retained from earlier editions. As before, only the highest quality photomicrographs have been more

Review quote

A book which deserves and invites careful handling and gives much aesthetic as well as intellectual satisfaction; at its price it is a remarkable value. * Neuroscience * An elegantly produced package of photographs and light micrographs. Handsome and yet reasonably priced.... Anyone with an interest in the subject and a weakness for beautiful books will want to own it. * Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine * The most complete and most profusely illustrated human brain atlas currently available. The atlas contains not only a basic core of information concerning the gross and sectional anatomy of the brain, but also material on the cytoarchitectual and vascular organization of the brain... The index is extensive and very usable. * Contemporary Psychology *show more
