1 Review

This atlas is an outstanding single-volume resource of information on the
structure and function of specific areas of the brain. Updated to reflect the
latest technology using 3 Tesla MR images, this edition has been 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.


  • Glossary of neuroanatomic structures and definitions
    provides the reader with a foundation in structures, function, and functional
  • High-quality images are divided into five sections,
    including Sagittal MRI views, Axial MRI views, Coronal MRI views,
    Fiber-Tracking Diffusion Tensor Imaging, and Three-Dimensional MRI views
  • Icons rapidly orient the reader with the location of
    each view or 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.
