Stereotaxic and Chemoarchitectural Atlas of the Brain of the Common Marmoset (Callithrix jacchus)
Published January 24th 2012 by CRC Press – 515 pages
Developing better therapies for neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases remains an enduring problem for 21st century medicine. The testing of novel therapies will continue to require a robust experimental animal model. The marmoset is an ideal animal model for modern neurological research because of the species’ convenient body size, ease of handling, and the fundamental similarity of its neuroanatomy to the human brain.
The Stereotaxic and Chemoarchitectural Atlas of the Brain of the Common Marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) is the most detailed atlas of the marmoset brain available. An essential tool for researchers developing more effective therapies for disabling and debilitating neurological disorders, the book contains:
The book combines modern imaging (MRI) with an accurate stereotaxic and chemoarchitectonic section atlas, making the fullest use of available technologies. The companion DVD includes all the images in full color. Designed by publishing neuroanatomists, this book/DVD will be a cornerstone in marmoset brain research for years to come.
