Index.

  • New edition features large number of all-new and updated images
  • New images reflect latest updates in imaging equipment and techniques
  • Text components have been carefully rewritten to include wider, non-technical audience, making the book ideal as a text as well as a reference. Truly integrates modern neuroscience with clinical practice
"The Brain Atlas serves as an authoritative reference work and learning tool for the brain and central nervous system. The work is essential fo rthe personal libraries of students, practioners, and researchers in neuroscience biology, psychiatry, and psychology, among other disciplines, as well as for libraries supporting both undergraduate and graduate course in school of medicine or health care facilities. The Brain Atlas is a worthwhile addition to any such collection, either as a replacement of or supplement to previous editions of the title." (E-Streams, December 2008)

"This reference book will serve as an outstanding resource for all students of neuroscience … .This Atlas will become a much sought after companion." (Journal of Tropical Pediatrics, August 2008)

"…excellent contribution to the neurosciences. It should be included in any neurosurgical, neurological, or neurosciences departmental libraries." (Doody's Book Reviews)
