Human Neuroanatomy: A Text, Brain Atlas, and Laboratory Dissection Guide has been substantially changed and updated from a previous edition entitled The Human Brain in Dissection published in 1988 and accordingly has been re-titled. The last 20 years have seen a significant shift in the way anatomy and its sub-disciplines like neuroanatomy are taught in both undergraduate and graduate neuroscience courses; not only has the time allocated for these courses been reduced, but the teaching methodologies have become more focused and specific due to time constraints. As reported by Drake et. al., "Medical education in the anatomical sciences: the winds of change continue to blow" (Anat. Sci. Educ., 2: 253-259, 2009), we have seen an overall drop in the total number of lecture hours and laboratory hours since the last survey done of medical curricula in 2002. Human Neuroanatomy has been reconstructed to appeal to just these changes: courses with a lab/dissection component as well as those without will find this guide the perfect teaching tool to understand human neuroanatomy. With these limitations in mind and to better meet current requirements the authors have expanded the textural content in this new edition and separated it entirely from the dissection instructions which have been retained. The "Laboratory Exercise" as it is now designated stands alone in a highlighted box in each chapter. It outlines what is to be accomplished during a given session using pre-dissected specimens and/or appropriate models or by exposing them in a dissection. Clear step by step procedural instructions are provided and important structures to be seen are highlighted. The dissection sequence laid out in the chapters is a progressive one requiring only a single wet specimen and ideally completed in two hour periods. Students who do not have the opportunity to dissect, however may simply skip these paragraphs. In this 3rd edition of the book many new illustrations have been added to better depict the salient features of the brain at various stages of dissection and to facilitate understanding the subject matter. Labeling of some illustrations has changed and others have been replaced. All are amply referenced to the text and to the laboratory exercises and are intended to assist with or be used in lieu of dissection. New also in this edition is a section of clinically-relevant notes as well as USMLE type multiple-choice questions added in separate sections at the end of each chapter. These quiz type questions provide students with a means of assessing their understanding of the subject matter in each chapter and an indication of how their knowledge might be tested. And finally, an atlas of 62 labelled brain sections in four different planes, at the end of the book, has been retained. CT scans and M.R. images that correspond as closely as possible to the anatomic section are included. Comprehensive and concise Human Neuroanatomy: A Text, Brain Atlas, and Laboratory Dissection Guide is an invaluable guide to assist medical, dental and allied health science students understand nervous system structure, function and disease.

Neuroanatomy: Draw It to Know It, Third Edition teaches neuroanatomy in a purely kinesthetic way. In using this book, the reader draws each neuroanatomical pathway and structure, and in the process, creates memorable and reproducible schematics for the various learning points in Neuroanatomy in a hands-on, enjoyable and highly effective manner. In addition to this unique method, Neuroanatomy: Draw It to Know It also provides a remarkable repository of reference materials, including numerous anatomic and radiographic brain images and illustrations from many other classic texts to enhance the learning experience. In the third edition of this now-classic text, the author completely reorganized the book based on user-feedback, taking a more intuitive and easy-to-use approach. For the first time, the illustrations are in full color. No other text in neuroanatomy engages the reader in as direct a manner as this book and none covers the advanced level of detail found while retaining the simplistic approach to the learning which has become the cornerstone of the text. Neuroanatomy: Draw It to Know It is singular in its ability to engage and instruct without overwhelming any level of neuroanatomy student.
This book was written to serve both as a guide for the dissection of the human brain and as an illustrated compendium of the functional anatomy of the brain and spinal cord. In this sense, the book represents an updated and expanded version of the book The Human Brain and Spinal Cord written by the author and published in Swedish by Scandinavian University Books in 1961. The complicated anatomy of the brain can often be more easily appreciated and understood in relation to its development. Some insight about the coverings of the brain will also make the brain dissections more meaningful. Introductory chapters on these subjects constitute Part I of the book. Part 2 is composed of the dissection guide, in which text and illustrations are juxtaposed as much as possible in order to facilitate the use of the book in the dissection room. The method of dissection is similar to dissection proce dures used in many medical schools throughout the world, and variations of the technique have been published by several authors including Ivar Broman in the "Manniskohjarnan" (The Human Brain) published by Gleerups F6rlag, Lund, 1926, and Laszlo Komaromy in "Dissection of the Brain," published by Akademiai Kiado, Budapest, 1947. The great popularity of the CT scanner justifies an extra laboratory session for the comparison of nearly horizontal brain sections with matching CT scans.
The sixth edition of this popular neuroanatomy atlas retains valuable features of prior editions: low cost and presentation of clinically relevant material in a manner conducive to self-study and review. The book has four parts. The first is a review of the organization of the nervous system, emphasizing the cranial nerves. The second is a summary of the neuroanatomical pathways with accompanying diagrams. The third summarizes the vasculature of the CNS, supplemented by illustrations of the arteries and veins with angiograms placed opposite the illustrations. The fourth is an atlas of the human brain and spinal cord with CT and MRI scans placed opposite the brain sections. With this edition, Basic Human Neuroanatomy becomes essentially an electronic book, although it remains available in print. This allows most of the figures to be in color, and the book to be loaded onto any device that can display a PDF file. An associated website features additional learning material.

The fourth edition of Atlas of the Human Brain presents the anatomy of the brain at macroscopic and microscopic levels, featuring different aspects of brain morphology and topography. This greatly enlarged new edition provides the most detailed and accurate delineations of brain structure available. It includes features which assist in the new fields of neuroscience – functional imaging, resting state imaging and tractography. Atlas of the Human Brain is an essential guide to those working with human brain imaging or attempting to relate their observations on experimental animals to humans. Totally new in this edition is the inclusion of Nissl plates with delineation of cortical areas (Brodmann’s areas), the first time that these areas have been presented in serial histological sections. The contents of the Atlas of the brain in MNI stereotaxic space has been extensively expanded from 143 pages, showing 69 levels through the hemisphere, to 314 pages representing 99 levels. In addition to the fiber-stained (myelin) plates, we now provide fifty new (Nissl) plates covering cytoarchitecture. These are interdigitated within the existing myelin plates of the stereotaxic atlas. All photographic plates now represent the complete hemisphere. All photographs of the cell- and fiber-stained sections have been transformed to fit the MNI-space. Major fiber tracts are identified in the fiber-stained sections. In the Nissl plates cortical delineations (Brodmann’s areas) are provided for the first time. The number of diagrams increased to 99. They were now generated from the 3D reconstruction of the hemisphere registered to the MNI- stereotaxic space. They can be used for immediate comparison between our atlas and experimental and clinical imaging results. Parts of cortical areas are displayed at high magnification on the facing page of full page Nissl sections. Images selected highlight those areas which are thought to correspond with those published by von Economo and Koskinas (1925). A novel way of depicting cortical areal pattern is used: The cortical cytoarchitectonic ribbon is unfolded and presented linearly. This linear representation of the cortex enables the comparison of different interpretations of cortecal areas and allows mapping of activation sites. Low magnification diagrams in the horizontal (axial) and sagittal planes are included, calculated from the 3D model of the atlas brain.
