A new comprehensive edition of a standard work, detailing and illustrating the organization, structure, function and connectivity of all individual brainstem nuclei. For neuroscientists and neurologists this atlas provides an invaluable and complete source of reference for both their scientific research and everyday clinical practice.
The new revised and extended edition of this standard work retains all he neurons of each nucleus. Many structural diff erences are described in neuronal groups, indicating as yet unrecognized functional diff erences. Furthermore, unique details of the neuronal organization and cytoarchitecture are featured, providing clues to the functional properties of the cell groups and stimulating research projects. Nomenclature and nuclear borders have been updated, in addition the text now contains new sections presenting an up-to-date summary of the functional neuroanatomy of each nucleus.
For neuroscientists and neurologists this atlas provides an invaluable and complete source of reference for both their scientifi c research and everyday clinical practice. Neuropathologists, neuroradiologists, neuropsychologists, neurosurgeons, physiologists and physicians will fi nd the combination of low-power brainstem imaging with cytological, physiological and neuroanatomical data highly relevant. In addition, the atlas off ers researchers in other disciplines the opportunity to discover new correlations between structure and function, outlining new functional regions in the brainstem.
