The Chemoarchitectonic Atlas of the Rat Brain is the third edition of the most accurate and comprehensive atlas of the rat brain featuring multiple chemoarchitectonic stains identifying brain structures.

Key Features

  • Provides an archive of chemical markers in the rat brain used in many areas of research
  • Discusses primary data to help researchers identify structures in their own preparations from neuroanatomical, physiological, neuropharmacological, and gene expression studies
  • Accompanies the gold standard reference on the neuroanatomy of the nervous system of the most important model animal in neuroscience and experimental psychology
  • Covers both the rat forebrain and the rat brainstem
  • Thoroughly revised identification of structures following the new data from The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates 7th edition and the Chick Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates 2nd edition
  • Includes the Expert Consult eBook version, compatible with PC, Mac, and most mobile devices and eReaders, which allows readers to browse, search, and interact with content


Standard neuroanatomy lab atlas for all labs doing neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neuropharmacology, behavioral neuroscience, or molecular expression/cloning/neurogenetics in the mouse brain

About the Authors

George Paxinos

George Paxinos

Professor George Paxinos, AO (BA, MA, PhD, DSc) completed his BA at The University of California at Berkeley, his PhD at McGill University, and spent a postdoctoral year at Yale University. He is the author of almost 50 books on the structure of the brain of humans and experimental animals, including The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, now in its 7th Edition, which is ranked by Thomson ISI as one of the 50 most cited items in the Web of Science. Dr. Paxinos paved the way for future neuroscience research by being the first to produce a three-dimensional (stereotaxic) framework for placement of electrodes and injections in the brain of experimental animals, which is now used as an international standard. He was a member of the first International Consortium for Brain Mapping, a UCLA based consortium that received the top ranking and was funded by the NIMH led Human Brain Project. Dr. Paxinos has been honored with more than nine distinguished awards throughout his years of research, including: The Warner Brown Memorial Prize (University of California at Berkeley, 1968), The Walter Burfitt Prize (1992), The Award for Excellence in Publishing in Medical Science (Assoc Amer Publishers, 1999), The Ramaciotti Medal for Excellence in Biomedical Research (2001), The Alexander von Humbolt Foundation Prize (Germany 2004), and more.
