From the Back Cover The Rhesus Monkey Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates is the most comprehensive, detailed atlas of the monkey brain ever constructed. The first chapter, "Photographic and Diagrammatic Atlas of the Rhesus Monkey Brain," presents 151 plates illustrating the subcortex and parts of the cortex in high magnification, and 151 corresponding diagrams complementing each image. The second chapter, "Delineation of the Rhesus Monkey Cortex on the Basis of the Distribution of a Neurofilament Protein," consists of 64 fully labeled plates depicting an entire hemisphere. Jointly, the two chapters constitute the most serious morphological work ever undertaken on the monkey. Key Features * Provides the first comprehensive delineations of cortical and subcortical structures of any primate species * Depicts the entire brain in 151 photographs paired with 151 detailed diagrams * Alternates sections stained for Nissl substance with sections reacted for acetylcholinesterase (AChE) * Contains 64 fully labeled photographs of brain sections reacted with an antibody to neurofilament protein (SMI32) * Features modern concepts of brain organization and a stereotaxic grid * Designed to become the standard reference for databasing and PET, MRI, and electrographic studies
