Human Brainstem,
Edition 1 Cytoarchitecture, Chemoarchitecture, Myeloarchitecture
By George Paxinos, Teri Furlong and Charles Watson

Publication Date: 31 Jul 2020

Human Brainstem: Cytoarchitecture, Chemoarchitecture, Myeloarchitecture explores how the human brainstem has been impeded by the unavailability of an up-to-date, comprehensive, diagrammatic and photographic atlas. Now, with the first detailed atlas on the human brainstem in more than twenty years, this book presents an accurate, comprehensive and convenient reference for students, researchers and pathologists.

Key Features

  • Presents the first detailed atlas on the human brainstem in more than twenty years
  • Represents all areas of the medulla, pons and midbrain in the plane transverse to the longitudinal axis of the brainstem
  • Consists of 63 plates and 63 accompanying diagrams with an interplate distance of one millimeter
  • Includes photographs of Nissl and acetylcholinesterase (AChE) stained sections at alternate levels
  • Provides an accurate and convenient guide for students, researchers and pathologists
