9780125476171: The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates

"The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, Fourth Edition", is a comprehensive revision of the most authoritative and widely cited atlas in neuroscience. In addition to the completely revised coronal diagrams, the Fourth Edition contains thoroughly revised sagittal and horizontal diagrams of the brain. High-quality photographs accompany each diagram. It includes a CD-ROM which contains 117 diagrams (both labeled and unlabeled) of coronal, sagittal, and horizontal sections through the brain and spinal cord. The CD-ROM also contains sets of Adobe Acrobat 3.0 files which allow you to print, copy, and search the diagrams that appear in the print version, and the software Adobe Acrobat Reader 3.0. The diagrams or parts of diagrams may be copied to most drawing or word-processor programs for custom labeling or alteration. More extensive editing can be achieved using the set of Adobe Illustrator (3.0) files which are included on the CD-ROM. These files can be edited with Adobe Illustrator and other graphics programs such as CorelDraw. It includes a special set of 69 color plates (of the original atlas sections) for use in computer labs or for making slides. It includes a multiplatform CD for use on both Macintosh and PCs.

"The newest edition of The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Co-ordinates is a phenomenally useful research tool. It provides a complete and highly accurate map of the entire rat CNS. The CD version has proved to be highly practical: quickly, we can generate brain drawings that are easily modified and can be used in scientific publications. My only regret is it cannot write the papers for our research studies." -- Arthur D Loewy, Washington University, St. Louis, USA

About the Author:

Professor George Paxinos, AO (BA, MA, PhD, DSc) completed his BA at The University of California at Berkeley, his PhD at McGill University, and spent a postdoctoral year at Yale University. He is the author of almost 50 books on the structure of the brain of humans and experimental animals, including The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, now in its 7th Edition, which is ranked by Thomson ISI as one of the 50 most cited items in the Web of Science. Dr. Paxinos paved the way for future neuroscience research by being the first to produce a three-dimensional (stereotaxic) framework for placement of electrodes and injections in the brain of experimental animals, which is now used as an international standard. He was a member of the first International Consortium for Brain Mapping, a UCLA based consortium that received the top ranking and was funded by the NIMH led Human Brain Project. Dr. Paxinos has been honored with more than nine distinguished awards throughout his years of research, including: The Warner Brown Memorial Prize (University of California at Berkeley, 1968), The Walter Burfitt Prize (1992), The Award for Excellence in Publishing in Medical Science (Assoc Amer Publishers, 1999), The Ramaciotti Medal for Excellence in Biomedical Research (2001), The Alexander von Humbolt Foundation Prize (Germany 2004), and more. Charles Watson is a specialist in the area of brain and spinal cord mapping. He graduated in medicine from the University of Sydney in 1967 and was awarded a research doctorate (MD) by the University of New South Wales in 1974. He lectured in anatomy at the UNSW from 1970 to 1982, when he took up a career in public health in the Health Department of Western Australia, being appointed Chief Health Officer for WA in 1993. He returned to university life in 1994, holding the position of Dean of Health Sciences at the University of Wollongong and Curtin University until 2006. Since then he has held research positions at Curtin and at Neuroscience Research Australia. Since 2006 he has published 11 books and over 40 journal articles. Watson was made a member of the Order of Australia (AM) in 2004. He earned a DSc (by thesis) from the University of Sydney in 2012. In his spare time he swims in the ocean, and he is an enthusiastic but mediocre player of the baritone saxophone. His musical favourites are Frank Zappa, Brian Eno, and Beethoven.
