Summary

THE BRAIN ATLAS: A Visual Guide to the Human Central Nervous System gives students of medicine and neuroscience students and health care professionals a comprehensive, accurate, and breathtakingly beautiful picture of the human brain. These images were prepared to exacting standards by renowned scholars and clinicians, draw on classical neuroanatomical sections, state of the art neuroimaging, and cutting edge computer aided design. The Brain Atlas is destined to become an essential field guide and an invaluable reference for all who seek to understand the human brain and treat human brain disorders.

  • Nearly 400 exquisite images (many of them life-size) in a clean and intuitive format offering students and practitioners a beautiful and thoroughly integrated view.
  • Extensive use of carefully matched MRIs and other radiological images complement classical sections and directly relate brain structure to clinical settings.
  • The unique uncluttered labeling system facilitates learning neuroanatomy while providing easy to use self-testing for board review and exam preparation.
  • Brain pathways are depicted on actual brain sections for dramatic, accurate, three-dimensional conceptualization.
  • Blood vessel territories in the brain are outlined by color overlays offering a clear and concise picture of brain blood supply.
  • PowerPoint® CD-ROM and complete slide set available to adopting instructors



"...the clearest and most beautiful one-volume exploration of brain anatomy I have ever seen. I cannot think of a more essential text in every one of the neurosciences. I will not let my copy of The Brain Atlas wander from my side."

--Edward H. Kolodny, M.D., NYU Medical Center

"The Brain Atlas is a tour de force in how to maximize visual information transfer. It is rational, efficient, and esthetically beautiful. The thoughtful use of color as a tool rather than as a toy is especially impressive. Students at all levels will love it --- and use it."

--Lawrence Kruger, Ph.D., UCLA Medical Center
