The preceding editions made The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates the second most cited book in science. This Fifth Edition is the result of years of research providing the user with the drawings of the completely new set of coronal sections, now from one rat, and with significantly improved resolution by adding a third additional section level as compared to earlier editions. Numerous new nuclei and structures also have been identified. The drawings are presented in two color, providing a much better contrast for use, and the accompanying CD-ROM contains all of the drawings from the atlas as well as the corresponding color micrographs (which are not included in the book). Affordable, comprehensive, compact, and convenient, the Fifth Edition continues the legacy of this major neuroscience publication and is a guide to all students and scientists who study the rat brain. Am161 coronal diagrams based on a single brain AmIncludes a CD-ROM featuring all of the drawings from the book, plus the accompanying color micrographs that are not in the printed atlas AmDelineations drawn entirely new from a new set of sections AmDiagrams spaced at constant 120 I¼m intervals resulting in the high resolution and convenience of use AmDrawings use blue color lines and black labels to facilitate extraction of information AmThe stereotaxic grid was derived using the same techniques that produced the widely praised stereotaxic grid of the previous editions AmOver 1000 structures identified, a number for the first time in this editionWe used the abbreviation Acb in this as well as all our other atlases. ... the labels for cell groups are placed on the right hand side of the diagram, and the labels for fibre bundles and nerves are placed on the left hand side of the diagram.
