Scholarcy highlights

  • The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates provides an atlas of the rat brain
  • The main features of this atlas are: It is based on the flat-skull position, and bregma, lambda, or the midpoint of the interaural line can be used as a reference point
  • (2) The atlas is based on the study of 130 adult male Wistar rats
  • The brain sections shown were taken at 0.5 mm intervals and were stained with either cresyl violet or for the demonstration of acetylcholinesterase. It is based on fresh brains frozen in the skull in order to overcome distortion produced by fixation and to enhance staining contrast
  • The book is intended for researchers and graduate students in the neurosciences
  • Senior undergraduates should find the atlas a useful adjunct to readings and lectures in brain anatomy and function
