Beschreibung

A new edition of the lavishly illustrated guide to brain structure and function

This outstanding resource on the structure and function of specific areas of the brain has been updated to reflect the latest technology using all-new 3 Tesla MR images. The book is divided into five sections. Retaining the successful format of the previous edition, the first three sections present two-dimensional sagittal, axial, and coronal MRI views of the brain paired with corresponding drawings in which the key structures are identified and briefly discussed. This edition is enhanced with new functional MRI studies as well as a new section on diffusion tensor imaging with three-dimensional reconstructions of fiber tracts using color coding to demonstrate neural pathways.

Highlights:

  • Glossary of neuroanatomic structures provides the reader with a foundation in structures, functions, and functional relationships
  • More than 200 high-quality images and drawings aid comprehension of structure and function
  • Icons rapidly orient the reader to the plane of the view or the direction of the diffusion pathway

This book eliminates the need to sift through multiple books for the current information on the structure and function of the brain. It is invaluable for clinicians in radiology, neuroradiology, neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry, psychology, neuropsychology, and neuroanatomy. The atlas is also ideal for medical students, nursing students, and individuals seeking to gain a firm understanding of human brain anatomy and function.
