Finally, Part V presents over thirty CNS pathways, using multiple slices linked by coloured diagrammatic lines to illustrate the organization and brain atlas woolsey of the CNS.

Each pathway is accompanied by a brief text summarizing its functions and connections.

Among the pathways illustrated are those of the brain stem, the sensory system, the motor system, the cerebellum and the autonomic systems. Medical-school staples brain atlas woolsey as the visual pathway and the spinothalamic tract are of course included, as are many that go far beyond the needs of a medical student, such as detailed representations of hippocampus and amygdala nuclei and their connections.


The quality of most images and the clarity and organization of each page is nearly faultless. The gross and histological slices are beautifully prepared and photographed.


The pages are densely packed with information yet never crowded, and the system of labelling is both logical and unobtrusive. On a basic background of black and white, colour brain atlas woolsey judiciously used to highlight essential elements such as arteries, vascular territories, nuclei, and pathways.

Approaching it with a question, a student will quickly and efficiently brain atlas woolsey virtually any answer on the anatomy of the CNS that he or she is likely to require.

If faced with a head CT or MRI during clerkship, the Atlas will immediately help orient the medical student, although it will offer no clue as to pathology. Simply browsing the Atlas will also be fruitful; its clarity of exposition allows key concepts to be brain atlas woolsey with every viewing.
