This atlas provides a guide for all intracranial interventions where precision in location of selected targets is of utmost importance, and ensures their reproducibility within and among the experimental subjects. The text will be appreciated particularly by those who implant: deep electrodes and micro-electrodes for either stimulation or recording purposes; thermo-sensitive probes for brain temperature measurements; miniature cannulas for chemical stimulation or drug deposition; and electrodes for localized reversible or irreversible lesions. The commonly used Horsley-Clarke system of stereotaxic planes has been applied here to the rabbit's brain. The orientation of the brain into the Horsley-Clarke basal planes has been achieved by a simple modification of the head fixation method introduced by Chatelier and Buser. This inexpensive modification, consisting only of properly shaped ear bars and infra-orbital bars adapted accordingly, also allows for the use of any universal stereotaxic instrument of adequate size for the rabbit The main portion of this atlas consists of several illustrations of frontal brain sections with corresponding micro-photographs taken at the caudal mesencephalic level and extending to the rostral forebrain level. This photographic material also provides basic morphological material from the comparative anatomy point of view. A simple technique which can be used for construction of similar atlases in other species is described in the methodology section. The illustrations can be used as a model in making up diagrams of the brain section.
