This colour atlas - created with advanced digital technology - brings together accurate images of functional neuroanatomy. It is a tool for correlating functional structures with clinical and radiologic findings, and for improving diagnoses of neurofunctional disorders. Written by specialists in neurology and neuroanatomy, the atlas covers all major neurofunctional systems (medial lemniscus, auditory, visual motor and limbic), each represented by a series of 3D images from in a variety of perspectives. The book also includes comprehensive images of the cerebral sulci and gyri, the ventricular system, and the cerebral arteries - a full range of canthomeatal cross-sections; and a complete evaluation of computer-based reconstruction techniques. Highlights of the book are: colour images of all neurofunctional systems, presented in seven perspectives; easy-to-follow differentiation of fibre paths from nuclear and cortical areas; detailed diagrams that situate each neurofunctional systems within the brain; a complete three-dimensional model of the cerebral vascular system; and help in identifying complex neurofunctional structures within MR, CT and PET images - essential for corroboration of clinical findings, arriving at an accurate diagnosis and planning appropriate treatment.
