Chemoarchitectonic Atlas of the Mouse Brain, 1st Edition

Chemoarchitectonic Atlas of the Mouse Brain, 1st Edition,George Paxinos,Charles Watson,ISBN9780123742384


Academic Press



A complementary Atlas to the extremely successful The Mouse Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates by Franklin and Paxinos, now in its 3rd edition (2008). This atlas collects labelled chemical neuroanatomy micrographs of the slides that the authors used to inform their identification of the brain regions delineated in the Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates. It is a very useful addition to the program for researchers working on the rat brain because it allows direct comparison of their own sections with the sections Paxinos uses to identify structures in the brain.

Key Features

* 350 sections of the mouse brain, stained serially with Nissl and six chemical markers (parvalbumin, calbindin, calretinin, tyrosine hydroxylase, NADPH diaphorase, and GAD)
* Features diagrams in addition to the sections
* Sections are labelled on the photographs
* Newly developed format showing 7 photographs and one diagram on each open book page in a 14"x11" format facilitates use in the laboratory
* Fills a huge gap in detailed information on the mouse brain
* Features neuromeric borders based on the system developed in Puelles et al. Atlas of the Chick Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates (2007)
* The perfect partner to the stereotaxic atlases and references published by Elsevier


For over two decades, Paxinos and Watson's The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, now in its 6th edition, and Franklin and Paxinos' The Mouse Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, now in its 3rd edition, have been the most used neuroanatomy references for neuroscientists. Both the illustrations and nomenclature of the atlas have become standard tools used by almost all research neuroscientists who deal with anatomy, physiology, or function.
This new atlas represents the first time an accurate histochemical atlas showing the areas of the mouse brain in microscopic slides in a variety of different stains has been available. Until now researchers studying the mouse brain have been forced to consult the existing histochemical atlases of the rat brain (including Paxinos and Watson's) and extrapolate from rat data - a strategy which is not very accurate and often not successful. This atlas collects systematic images of the mouse brain stained with a range of key chemical markers to complement The Mouse Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates.
