Reviews

"Of the many neuroanatomical texts available, I found this beautifully illustrated Brain Atlas particularly helpful in developing confidence in neuroanatomy, aided by such comprehensive and well-presented information"....."This book is ideal for trainees in any neuroscience specialty. Medical students will also find this one of the better neuroanatomical texts on the market"...."Apart from being an essential resource for any practitioner requiring detailed knowledge in neuroanatomy, this book would prove extremely beneficial to those analysing whole brains and brain sections at both the macroscopic and microscopic levels" Abel Devedass, Addenbrooke's Hospital on behalf of the Neuropathology and Applied Neurobiology Journal, Ocy 2017
