The essential reference atlas for contemporary functional brain imaging
This unique, pioneering atlas, first published in 1988, introduced the original and, by now, indispensable concept of a "proportional grid system" for the brain. The modern understanding of cerebral localization, gained from nearly a century and a half of research since the days of Broca and Wernicke, implies that two adjacent brain areas can have vastly different functions, even though no border may be visible between them. Thus, no grossly apparent line separates functionally distinct nuclei in the thalamic gray matter, or adjacent Brodmann areas in thecortex. Further, brains vary among individuals in length, width, and height, so that functional areas cannot simply be localized by their spatial coordinates, either. Suppose a neuroimaging study reveals a focal finding somewhere in the brain. How, then, is the clinician or researcher to know in which functional area the finding lies? This atlas is the key to the answer. It presents functional anatomy in a spatially normalized scheme that is applicable to any human brain. Its basis is an orthogonal grid constructed on the line linking the anterior and posterior commissures (the "AC-PC line").
The proportional grid system is now the worldwide standard coordinate system for reparing and interpreting functional brain images in all modalities, including functional MRI, PET, SPECT, magnetoencephalography, and three-dimensional EEG. Research papers in functional neuroimaging generally give the "Talairachcoordinates" of the structures in question. Thus, anyone who wants to understand the latest developments in neurological research will benefit from owning this book.
This book includes a detailed, easily understandable explanation of the coordinate system; a full anatomical brain atlas, with sagittal, verticofrontal (coronal),and horizontal sections; and practical examples demonstrating the use of the atlas in conjunction with CT and MRI scans.
This renowned classic will be of major practical use to neurologists, neurosurgeons,and neuroradiologists, and all other specialists in the basic and clinical neurosciences.
