The 3rd Edition of this popular atlas offers you a systematic approach to the gross anatomy of the brain, spinal cord, and the brainstem. With an emphasis on major structures and concepts, and a careful selection of photographed sections, explanatory diagrams, and brief text, you'll find the guidance you need to better understand this complex subject. Unlabelled photographs juxtaposed with faded-out versions of the same photographs with important structures outlined and labelled allows you to view a section as you would in real life.
