Abstract/Summary The Mouse Nervous System provides a comprehensive account of the central nervous system of the mouse. The book is aimed at molecular biologists who need a book that introduces them to the anatomy of the mouse brain and spinal cord, but also takes them into the relevant details of development and organization of the area they have chosen to study. The Mouse Nervous System offers a wealth of new information for experienced anatomists who work on mice. The book serves as a valuable resource for researchers and graduate students in neuroscience. * Visualization of brain white matter anatomy via 3D diffusion tensor imaging contrasts enhances relationship of anatomy to function * Systematic consideration of the anatomy and connections of all regions of brain and spinal cord by the authors of the most cited rodent brain atlases * A major section (12 chapters) on functional systems related to motor control, sensation, and behavioral and emotional states, * Full segmentation of 170120+ brain regions more clearly defines structure boundaries than previous point-and-annotate anatomical labeling, and connectivity is mapped in a way not provided by traditional atlasesA detailed analysis of gene expression during development of the forebrain by Luis Puelles, the leading researcher in this area. * Full coverage of the role of gene expression during development, and the new field of genetic neuroantomy using site-specific recombinases * Examples of the use of mouse models in the study of neurological illness.
