Atlas of the Developing Rat Nervous System,
Edition 4
By George Paxinos, AO (BA, MA, PhD, DSc), NHMRC and Ken W.S. Ashwell

Publication Date: 02 Mar 2018

Paxinos and Ashwell's Atlas of the Developing Rat Nervous System, Fourth Edition, builds on the many excellent features of previous editions that have made this book the most cited atlas of the developing rat brain. It provides the most comprehensive depiction of not only the structures in the brain and spinal cord, but also of the peripheral nervous system and target organs that are important for developmental neurobiologists, allowing the user to follow neural structures through the developing embryo in both time and space. The nomenclature and identification of structures in this edition have been thoroughly updated to ensure accuracy and compatibility.

Key Features

  • Provides detailed and accurate coverage of the developing rat nervous system from Embryonic Day 11 to Day of Birth
  • Contains 200 photographs and accompanying diagrams of coronal or sagittal sections of rats aged E11 – E19
  • Presents new sections on Histology, Neurogenetics, Imaging, MRI Histology and Panneuronal Markers
  • Delineates brain structures and peripheral nerves, ganglia, arteries, veins, muscles, bones and other important organs
  • Serves as an essential tool for researchers in the interpretation of findings resulting from the genetic manipulation of brain development
  • Includes the Expert Consult eBook version, compatible with PC, Mac, and most mobile devices and eReaders, which allows readers to browse, search, and interact with content
