"The atlas in indeed comprehensive, comprising eight series of photomicrographs and drawings from Nissi stained sections... The atlas can be recommended to those interested in studying the structural or neurochemical development of the normal rat brain and is useful for those interested in prenatal neurophathology following intrauterine exposure to toxins or other harmful agents. It can also be recommended to neuroscientists interested in explant of brain slice cultures (or co-cultures), and to scientists involved in fetal neural trans-plantation... The authors and publishers are to be commended for the thoroughness with which the atlas has been prepared."
