  • "Excellent and comprehensive text... a synthesis of structural and architectonic studies of the human brain together with recent information on the connectivity of different regions, derived largely form animal experiments... beautifully illustrated... superbly illustrated... superb in both content and illustration. These chapters will be standard reference works for many years to come... All these chapters are excellent, the high standard of illustration, as with the rest of the volume, being particularly praiseworthy... This is an excellent book which admirably fulfils the aim of the Editor... The text and, particularly, the illustrations, are of a uniformly high standard throughout... The volume provides a timely and high quality reference work on the structure and connectivity of the human brain... excellent value."

    "An impressive survey of our knowledge of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nervous system... This monumental work promises to stand for years as the standard text."
    "If you're looking for a comprehensive account of the human nervous system, the book you need is The Human Nervous System edited by George Paxinos."
