Description

MRI Atlas of the Infant Rat Brain: Brain Segmentation features an entirely new coronal, sagittal and horizontal set of tissue cut in regular 9 µm intervals with accompanying photographs of MRI data and color drawings of selected brain regions in the three planes. The use of the single brain allows for greater consistency between sections, while color masking offers advances in manual segmentation techniques with increased refinement in the definition of brain areas. Readers will benefit from uniform and consistent manual tissue segmentation of MRI data in an infant rat brain. This volume provides readers the first infant rat brain MRI atlas and a valuable resource in research analyses of the developing brain for structural and functional MRI analyses.

Key Features

  • Provides a one-of-a-kind neuroanatomical reference for the infant rat brain based on MRI acquisition at 2 weeks of age
  • Covers 31 coronal sections of a single rat brain, allowing for better consistency and delineations of the structural outlines
  • Illustratively represents a 3D view of the brain and its gross structures for the ease of visual learning
  • Presents 31 coronal sections of a single rat brain
  • Includes an eBook in PDF version that is also available for improved digital readability, thus allowing for printing at different magnifications

Readership

Graduate students in biological and biomedical sciences, neuroscientists, clinicians, biomedical scientists, post-doctoral fellows, researchers in neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neuroimaging of the infant rat brain, as well as anyone using the infant rat as an experimental model Radiology Residents interested in expanding knowledge to research in animal models, students of neuroanatomy and neuroscience in general

About the Authors

Dusica Bajic

Dr. Dusica Bajic MD, PhD is an Associate Professor of Anaesthesiology at Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA. She received her MD from the Medical School of the University of Belgrade, Serbia and PhD from the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Illinois at Chicago, IL. Her postdoctoral training included: (1) Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology at the University of Illinois at Chicago, (2) Anesthesia Residency training at Yale New Haven Hospital, Yale University, as well as (3) Pediatric Anesthesia Fellowship at Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard University in Boston, MA where she now works as board certified pediatric anesthesiologist and physician-scientist since 2008. It is her work in the field of neurobiology of pain and pain management that has led to her implementing neuroimaging tools in studying the effects on developing brain.
