Item description for Atlas of Morphology and Functional Anatomy of the Brain by F. Di Salle...
This dual atlas aims at illustrating the anatomy of the brain and its appearance on MR images using a simple and effective mode of presentation. Following an introductory chapter, "Comprehensive anatomy of the human brain", the book is divided into a morphological and a functional imaging section. The morphological atlas presents 3D surface images followed by high-definition MR sections acquired in the axial, coronal, and sagittal planes. The MR images are paired with the corresponding anatomical images to enable their clinical correlation. The functional atlas includes illustrative MR images showing cortical activation in various functional areas (including the auditory, motor, visual, and language areas).

An excerpt from AJNR Mar 25, 2008
The cross-sectional views provide detailed anatomic relationships of the deep gray matter and white matter structures that can be visualized with routine MR imaging. However, the Atlas does not present information on the location of white matter tracts and fasciculi that are not clearly visible on standard imaging or cadaveric specimens. Yet they are readily identifiable on DTI. An understanding of cortical landmarks without the appreciation of white matter connectivity yields an incomplete appreciation of functional brain anatomy.
In response to a variety of simple and cognitive tasks, the third and final section of the Atlas-"Functional Anatomy"-uses blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) fMRI to illustrate activated gyral and sulcal regions within the brain. Activated areas examined include auditory, sensorimotor, speech and language, dorsolateral prefrontal, and visual cortex. In this section, activated regions are described very briefly, with several illustrations using BOLD fMRI superimposed onto multiplanar imaging and onto 3D surface-rendered views of the brain. These surface-rendered views include standard, inflated, and flat-mapping representations. This section on brain function and functional anatomy is limited by a sparse examination of the various cognitive and sensorimotor functions and a lack of discussion. There is no description of the functional networks, which can be imaged and would promote an understanding of the relationship between anatomically labeled structures and brain function.
