not yet rated|write a review
The first two editions of this title had a tremendous impact in neuroscience. Between the Second edition in 1989 and today, there has been an explosion of information in the field, including advances in molecular techniques, such as genomics and proteomics, which have become increasing important in neuroscience. A renaissance in fluorescence has occurred, driven by the development of new probes, new microscopes, live imagers, and computer processing. The introduction of new markers has enormously stimulated the field, moving it from tissue culture to neurophysiology to functional MRI techniques.

From the Jacket

"The content of the book also serves to emphasize that neuroanatomy is, perhaps more than ever, a thriving and important part of the neurosciences...Most contributions have in common the combination of modern tract-tracing methods with other means of characterizing neural tissue, and thus the book also serves to highlight the gradual d...
