Description

1) Introduction with student's guide on how to do stereotaxic surgery and how to use stereotaxic atlases
2) Introduction to the concept of neuromeres and brain development
3) Overview of the brain for students, including three sagittal, five coronal, and two horizontal simplified diagrams, as well as surface diagrams of the brain
4) Nomenclature ontology tree
5) 100 coronal diagrams and corresponding photgraphic plates

Key Features

  • Delineations of 100 coronal diagrams, as fully revised for the 3rd edition
  • 100 coronal photographic plates produced from directly scanned very high resolution images of the biological sections (done at the Allen Institute)
  • Beginner's guide with 25 pages on how to do stereotaxic surgery, how to use the atlas, including how to match experimental sections against the atlas plates (e.g. what features of the brain change gradually and can be used as guides to location)
  • 3 sagittal, 5 coronal and 2 horizontal simplified overview diagrams for students
  • Surface views of the brain with labels over the major structures
  • Uses the best ontology tree (nomenclature based on the development of the brain) so far constructed with universal application across mammals
  • CD providing electronic versions of all diagrams and photographs in different resolutions for downloads

Readership

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