Description

The result of 3 decades of original research and instruction by internationally referenced authors, Drs. Joseph Altman and Shirley A. Bayer, the Atlas of Prenatal Rat Brain Development provides a complete, state-of-the-art presentation of the developing prenatal rat brain. With the aid of advanced computer graphics, Altman and Bayer revolutionize the study of the highly vulnerable prenatal brain and bring us closer to understanding the dynamics of its development, its malfunctions, deficits, and abnormalities. Their contributions to the field of brain research, and hence to our knowledge of brain disorders, are unsurpassed.

The Atlas contains more than 265 platesÛeach plate accompanied by a computer-aided drawing, a 3-dimensional reconstruction of brain slices never before achieved with such accuracy and clarity, that assists in the visualization of the brain and of the relationships among various brain regions. A new, user-friendly alphanumeric coding system is used, allowing for easy identification of brain regions.
