Item description for Neuroanatomy: 3D-Stereoscopic Atlas of the Human Brain (With CD-ROM) by Martin Christian Hirsch & Thomas Kramer...
The topographical and functional architecture of the human brain is highly complex. A profound understanding of this architecture is a prerequisite to understanding the functions and dysfunctions of the brain, to pass examinations in neuroanatomy, and to conduct operations in neurosurgery.The illustrations in this stereoscopic atlas have been developed with the greatest scientific thoroughness, and using an absolutely new 3D computer model. The use of a complex, stereoscopic visualization procedure presents the reader with a completely new and amazing, yet comprehensible, insight into the human brain.In combination with the CD-ROM, which contains all 173 illustrations as rotatable 3D models, this book introduces an innovative quality into the conception of spatial structures.It has never been so easy and fascinating to understand the architecture of the human brain!

A doctor's helper. Nov 11, 2006
The images in this book help present 3 dimensionally, parts of the brain described in neuroanatomy textbooks. I am glad I chose this book.
the best atlas Oct 10, 2005
you know brain is very complicate but this atlas will give you the 3dimensional view over it .I suggest every medical student should buy it.
Almost perfect ! Mar 20, 2004
I bought this book with great expectations. The idea of turning an twisting 3D neuroanatomic pictures around on the computer to gain a better spatial understanding of the structures was the reason I bought it.
1) The names of the 3D structures you're actually looking at, either on the computer or in the book, are not written. Therefore you'll have to glance on the opposite page in the book all the time. It would have helped if the name of the structure fx appeared when you scrolled the mouse cursor over it.
2) The pictures are nice, but I miss pictures of functional pathways. Not just anatomical structures. Fx pain-pathways. This would, I guess it would make the book much more expensive.
3) Theres is no pictures of the spinal cord. I know it's just a small thing but then it wouldn't have taken much effort to include it. I guess. There not many pictures of the brainstem either.
BUT BUT BUT....The book is worth the money, and helped me understand many spatial details fx around the hypothalamus. I'm looking for a second edition....with the small improvements that makes this the perfect book for students to gain a good spatial overview of the CNS.
Intuitive approach to an old problem Sep 13, 2003
Most atlas books leave much to the imagination. The pleasure of this book is that 3D is the natural language of Anatomy and the right tool for study of complex objects.
The CD-ROM with this book is worth the double the price alone. The book is a useful companion with a naming atlas opposing each printed 3D image.
A useful and productive tool for study and revision. When used in conjunction with research papers can lead to a faster and more advanced understanding of neural pathways.
Would recommend purchasing spare glasses if you plan to share this book or have extended usage. There are several sources of anaglyph glasses on the internet.
This is it! Nov 10, 2001
At last something not being a model or real brain gives you the chance to understand and appreciate neuroanatomy, especially the profound structures. For the first time it is actually possible to get an idea of the fornix and ventricular system from a book.
