Review by Choice Review

This new fourth edition remains the gold standard in human brain atlases. Mai (Heinrich-Heine-Univ., Germany), Majtanik (MR-X-Brain GmbH, Germany), and Paxinos (Univ. of New South Wales, Australia) have produced a beautiful, highly detailed, comprehensive atlas of the human brain. It is organized into two sections: part 1 contains color photographs and drawings representing 1-centimeter-thick sections of three human brains sectioned in the horizontal, coronal, and sagittal planes, displayed with matching in vivo MR images. In part 2, color photographs and drawings represent meticulously delineated serial histological sections of the brain in stereotaxic space, including 99 fiber-stained myelin photographs with accompanying diagrams and--unique to this edition--50 cell-stained Nissl plates with demarcation of cortical areas (Brodmann areas). The index incorporates separate lists of structures and abbreviations. This extensive reference work suited to advanced research is available in electronic form on multiple platforms and is accompanied by considerable amounts of supplemental materials freely accessible at http://www.thehumanbrain.info/. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty; professionals/practitioners. --Neil Nero, Princeton University
