Using large-format cross-sectional photographs and corresponding labelled diagrams, this atlas builds a detailed picture of the human brain. Cross sections are cut both horizontally and at 20-30 DG to the horizontal. There are also angiograms and drawings showing the brain's vascular structure.

"The most complete and most profusely illustrated human brain atlas currently available...Contains not only a basic core of information concerning the gross and sectional anatomy of the brain, but also material on the cytoarchitectural and vascular organization of the brain....The index is
extensive and very usable."--Contemporary Psychology
"A book which deserves and invites careful handling and gives much aesthetic as well as intellectual satisfaction."--Neuroscience
"An elegantly produced package of photographs and light micrographs...Among the book's most enjoyable special features are several high-power Nissl-stained micrographs. Those of the cerebellar cortex and the hippocampus are especially intriguing....Anyone with an interest in the subject and a
weakness for beautiful books will want to own it."--Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine
"The authors have revised their already excellent atlas to include a full series of pictures of brains sectioned at 20 to 30 degrees to the orbital meatal line, the angle frequently employed with CT scanning...In addition to the standard anatomy, valuable sections on cytoarchitecture of the
cerebral cortex and vascular structures are included."--Journal of Neurosurgery
"A useful reference atlas which provides a number of coherent systematic series of sections through the CNS. The sections through the gross brain will be of considerable value for correlation with neuroradiological images."--Brain
"This is by far the best atlas of human neuroanatomy available!"--Patrick M. Dougherty, Ph.D., Johns Hopkins Medical School
