The Atlas of the Developing Rat Nervous System, 3rd edition builds on the many excellent features of the second edition by increasing the number of ages represented and by the inclusion of colour plates. The third edition now contains over 20% more plates with the added material depicting early ages not well covered in earlier editions and yet is presented in a concise easy-to-use format. The Atlas provide the most comprehensive depiction not just of structures in the brain and spinal cord but also of peripheral nervous system elements and their target organs that are important for developmental neurobiologists. This allows the user to follow seamlessly neural structures through the developing embryo in both time and space. The nomenclature and identification of structures in the third edition has been thoroughly updated to ensure accuracy and compatibility with modern developmental biology findings and terminology.
Neuroscientists, neurobiologists, and developmental biologists studying the rat nervous system.
