From the Back Cover:

nt reference book and an outstanding learning text for anyone trying to master the intricate layout of the brain and its related structures.” TRENDS IN NEUROSCIENCE

The Brain Atlas: A Visual Guide to the Human Central Nervous System integrates modern neuroscience with clinical practice and is now completely revised and updated for a Fourth Edition making it the best available visual guide to human neuroanatomy.

The human brain is one of the most amazing consequences of evolution. The Brain Atlas correlates human brains, anatomical slices of brains, and MRI and MRA scans showing brain structure in three different planes. Details of all parts of the brain are clearly labelled. Nerve pathways through the brain are illustrated with color diagrams and illustrations. Color coding and brain-section markers on each page permit easy navigation through The Brain Atlas.

The companion digital edition interactively animates detailed illustrations to show how the form and function of the brain is organized.

While other atlases can overwhelm users with detail and/or oversimplify the brain, The Brain Atlas shows brain structures and the interneuronal connections that clarify human neuroanatomy and that relate to function and disease.

  • Uses direct labeling system including an alphabetical list of terms for each image
  • Contains approximately 350 high quality images showing the brain in incredible detail
  • Unrivaled treatment of brain pathways, with colored diagrams that clearly trace pathways on actual brain slices detailed in the anatomical section of the book
  • Systematic correlation of magnetic resonance images side-by-side with corresponding brain slices
  • Blood supply maps related to brain and brain slice images show detailed maps of arteries, veins and blood territory maps next to each brain image/slice
  • Print edition comes with free access to Wiley companion digital edition accessible on any device, allowing the reader to make notes, bookmark, follow cross references, and download figures

This book is ideal for trainee neurologists, neuroscientists, neurobiologists, and for medical students, however it’s easy to understand layout makes it a must have resource for anyone who wants a deep and clear working knowledge of brain anatomy.

From the Inside Flap:

The Brain Atlas flows logically from surface anatomy to cross-sections to regional histology, ending with diagrams of the major neuronal systems. Features of the Third Edition include:

  • All new clinical images obtained using the latest imaging technology

  • A direct labeling system of key structures with a separate alphabetical list of these terms to speed identification in each figure

  • An unrivaled treatment of brain pathways, using clear color graphics to trace pathways on actual brain slices

  • Magnetic resonance images that face corresponding brain slices and sections permit direct comparison and accurate identification

With these new updated features, the Third Edition continues to be the unsurpassed visual guide to human neuroanatomy for students, researchers, and practitioners in neuroanatomy, neurology, neuroscience, psychiatry, medicine, and psychology.
