The first of its kind, Brain Mapping provides a comprehensive discussion of all methods used to map the brain. The book analyzes the assumptions, limitations, and specific techniques, and integrates the information collected by using them all. It spans the methodological gamut from the molecular level to the whole brain and covers anatomy, physiology, and pathology, as well as their integration.

Dr. Mazziotta is a Professor of Neurology, Radiological Sciences, and Pharmacology and the Pierson Lovelace Investigator at UCLA, as well as the Director of the UCLA Brain Mapping Program that he established in 1993. Dr. Mazziotta has published more than 190 research papers and five texts and has received numerous honor and achievement awards including the Oldendorf Award of the American Society of Neuroimaging, the S. Weir Mitchell Award of the American Academy of Neurology, and the Von Hevesy Prize from the International Society of Nuclear Medicine. Dr. Mazziotta has been chair of the Scientific Issues and Program Committee of the American Academy of Neurology. He is the President-Elect of the American Neuroimaging Society and is the President of the Brain Mapping Medical Research Organization. He is also Co-Editor-in-Chief of NeuroImage.Review:
"On the subject of competitors of this book, my conclusion is that there are none. I am aware of no other such comprehensive, well-illustrated and entirely readable description of the methods for brain mapping, providing everything from the foundations to the major pitfalls and practical applications of the technique... This book should be at hand in every brain imaging lab."
--TRENDS IN NEUROSCIENCE
"Investigation of the functional architecture of the human brain using modern noninvasive imaging techniques is a rapidly expanding area of research. A proper knowledge of methodology is needed to appreciate the burgeoning literature in the field. Now we have an excellent catalogue of the main techniques. The editors have assembled an impressive group of experts, all widely known in their field, who contribute an outstanding set of chapters. The editorial hand has been firm and judicious, placing each contribution in context so that the book develops logically. Coverage ranges from recording intrinsic optical signals through tomographical mapping techniques and electrically and magnetically basis measurements, to issues of experimental design and statistics relevant to image analysis. I cannot recommend this volume highly enough for both experts and those starting out in the field. It is also beautifully illustrated and produced."
--Richard Frackowiak, Institute of Neurology, London in NATURE
"This timely and authoritative textbook brings together a wide variety of both basic and clinical brain mapping methods. Drs. Toga and Mazziotta are recognized experts in the field and have accomplished this difficult task admirably. The finished work reflects the considerable basic science and clinical talents of the multiple contributing authors... this multiauthored book is very well written and beautifully illustrated. Generous use of color figures and excellent line diagrams complement the text. The table of contents is listed in outline form, providing a handy navigational aid... Brain Mapping: The Methods is a timely and important source book for learning more about the tools used to relate brain structure and function. This new reference work will rightfully find its place in the libraries of both research scientists and clinicians in the neurosciences."
--Howard A. Rowley in ANNALS OF NEUROLOGY
