This atlas maps the detailed architectonic subdivisions of the cortical and subcortical areas in the macaque monkey brain using high-resolution magnetic resonance (MR) images and the corresponding histology sections in the same animal. This book presents the detailed mapping of the architectonic areas in the horizontal plane of sections with reference to the MRI that has not been reported previously in macaque monkeys. In the second part of the atlas, the coronal plane is presented using the same technique. A third part shows the quick identification of several important cortical and subcortical areas (around 30 areas) in horizontal, coronal and sagittal MR images. This atlas is unlike anything else available as it includes and compares each section to imaging data. This is a significant progress, as the vast majority of research in the field now routinely work with fMRI images.

Key Features

· Provides the first combined MRI and Histology maps of the cortical and subcortical areas of any non-human primate species · Shows the first detailed delineations of the cortical and subcortical areas in both horizontal and coronal planes in the same animal using five different staining methods · Illustrates the entire dorsoventral extent of the left hemisphere in 47 horizontal MRI and photomicrographs matched with 47 detailed diagrams (Chapter 3) · Presents the full rostrocaudal extent of the right hemisphere in 76 coronal MRI and photomicrographs, and 76 corresponding drawings (Chapter 4) · Illustrates the selected cortical and subcortical areas in horizontal, coronal and sagittal MRI planes (Chapter 5) · Provides the sterotaxic grid derived from the in-vivo MR image · Likely to become a standard reference for anatomical, physiological, and functional imaging studies in primates (fMRI, PET and MEG)


Researchers who work with monkeys and humans in systems neuroscience, imaging, physiology, anatomy.

"To discover the secrets of perception, memory, action, and consciousness, we must be able to navigate the secret passageways of the nervous system. In a lovingly illustrated work, Saleem and Logothetis provide high-resolution charts at an unprecedented level of detail that may well rival the effect of Brodmann's maps of the primate brain." --Dr. Christof Koch, California Institute of Technology (Caltech) "This is an extraordinarily detailed and comprehensive atlas of the macaque monkey brain. The figures are beautiful and very clear; the inclusion of sections stained with three staining methods, and their correlation with high-resolution MRI scans gives the atlas depth and validity. It should be widely used, and is likely to become a standard." --Dr. Joseph L. Price, Washington University in St. Louis "Simply excellent! This much needed atlas is meticulous and clear, and a brilliant exposition of the basic anatomical relationships of the macaque brain. It will be a treasured reference and guide for both experts and beginners over a wide range of research areas." --Dr. Kathleen S. Rockland, Riken Brain Science Institute, Japan "Here I have found a unique combination of histology sections and high-resolution MRI in the same macaque brain. The images are excellent. This book will be useful for researchers using macaque monkeys as well as those referring to the monkey brain from comparative view point." --Dr. Keiji Tanaka, Riken Brain Science Institute, Japan "...a comprehensive atlas rich in structural, histological, and functional detail. An absolute must for all neuroscientists navigating the rhesus monkey brain." Dr. Leslie G. Ungerleider, NIMH-NIH "Our ability to decipher the intricate circuitry and function of the primate brain depends upon accurately localizing experimental data to particular spatial coordinates and to particular architectonic subdivisions revealed by postmortem histochemistry. This atlas of the macaque brain will serve as a valuable resource to the neuroscience community because it combines detailed architectonic maps with high-resolution structural MRI that preserves information about spatial coordinates." --Dr. David C. VanEssen, Washington University in St. Louis "A magnificent contribution to neuroscience from Saleem and Logothetis - an up-to-date, comprehensive, and wonderfully detailed view of the primate brain that no functional neuroanatomist can afford to be without." -- Dr. Mortimer Mishkin, NIMH, NIH “The strengths of the atlas are the use of three planes of view, and the comparison of different histological preparations with fMRI images.” -- Dr. Jon Kaas, Vanderbilt University, Nashville TN "Any language, in order to be alive, must be used competently and comfortably by an engaged community. The Saleem and Logothetis atlas, which itself has resulted from an active interdisciplinary dialogue, is an excellent example of what can be done across levels and should become a standard classic."
