Brain Maps: Structure of the Rat Brain.

Swanson LW
Third Edition, Elsevier Academic Press, Oxford, 2004

From the publisher, Elsevier: "This updated edition of Brain Maps: Structure of the Rat Brain provides atlas maps aligned in 3-dimensional space and created using color photomicrographs of histological sections based on a single rat brain. Where other atlases use multiple brains as models, the use of a single brain allows for true 3-D reconstruction. The atlas employs color coding of the major parts of the brain and extends this coding system to the atlas levels, flatmaps, and nomenclature tables for easier reference." The atlas includes as well: systematic nomenclature tables, references to the primary research literature for all of the structures, and coverage of the neuroanatomical methods and mapping.
