The present edition of our The Human Central Nervous System: A Synopsis and Atlas differs in several respects from its predecessor. An entirely new section on the cerebrovascular system and the meninges has been added, in accordance with the wishes of many colleagues. The text has been thoroughly revised and extended in the light of new data and concepts. The functional significance of the structures discussed and depicted has received more atten tion, and numerous correlations with neuropathology and clinical neurology have been indicated. The final section in the previous editions was devoted to the monoaminergic neuron systems. It was our original plan to add sections on other important transmitter-specified neuronal populations. However, the size of these sections soon grew well beyond the limits set for the present work. Hence, it was decided to produce a separate text on that subject, which has appeared in the mean time (R.NIEUWENHUYS: Chemoarchitecture of the Brain, Springer Verlag 1985). The reader who is particularly interested in chemical neuroana tomy is referred to that work; numerous data on the nature of the neurotrans mitters present in the various centres and fibre systems of the neuraxis are incorporated in the text of the present book, however.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the development of the human central nervous system (CNS) in the context of its many developmental disorders due to genetic, environmental, and hypoxic/ischemic causes. The introductory chapters give an overview of the development of the human brain and the spinal cord, the mechanisms of development as obtained in experimental studies of various invertebrates and vertebrates, and the causes of congenital malformations. In the main part, the developmental disorders of the human brain and the spinal cord are presented in a regional, more or less segmental way, starting with neurulation and neural tube defects, and ending with developmental disorders of the cerebral cortex. These are underlined by carefully chosen clinical case studies, including imaging data and, when available, postmortem verification of the developmental disorders involved. Numerous color photographs and illustrations complement the text. This second edition emphasizes the prenatal diagnosis by ultrasound, MRI, and DTI and implements new classifications of developmental disorders.

The previous two editions of the Human Nervous System have been the standard reference for the anatomy of the central and peripheral nervous system of the human. The work has attracted nearly 2,000 citations, demonstrating that it has a major influence in the field of neuroscience. The 3e is a complete and updated revision, with new chapters covering genes and anatomy, gene expression studies, and glia cells. The book continues to be an excellent companion to the Atlas of the Human Brain, and a common nomenclature throughout the book is enforced. Physiological data, functional concepts, and correlates to the neuroanatomy of the major model systems (rat and mouse) as well as brain function round out the new edition. Adopts standard nomenclature following the new scheme by Paxinos, Watson, and Puelles and aligned with the Mai et al. Atlas of the Human Brain (new edition in 2007) Full color throughout with many new and significantly enhanced illustrations Provides essential reference information for users in conjunction with brain atlases for the identification of brain structures, the connectivity between different areas, and to evaluate data collected in anatomical, physiological, pharmacological, behavioral, and imaging studies

This is the fifth and last Volume in the Atlas of Human Central Nervous System Development Series. It deals with human brain development during the early first trimester from the third through the seventh gestational weeks. Serial sections from 14 specimens are illustrated and annotated in detail, together with 3?D reconstructions of the brains of eight specimens. The Human Brain During the Early First Trimester focuses on these major themes: Growth of the stockbuilding neural progenitor cells along the expanding shorelines of the superventricles Identification of the mosaic compartments of the neuroepithelium that generate neurons and neuroglia for different brain structures Onset of neurogenesis and expansion of a newly identified meningeal tissue, the superarachnoid reticulum, which provides space for the growing brain parenchyma Migratory paths of neurons in the early-maturing regions of the brain and the formation of the earliest fiber tracts Finally, a concluding essay with illustrations and graphs summarizes the major events of human CNS development. It also provides a theoretical account of the morphogenetic processes involved in human CNS development and relates them to current genetic and molecular research in animal models. This atlas is also available as part of a five volume set.

The publication of the fifth volume completes this historic series of atlases. Available for the first time as a set, this award winning series provides the only complete record of the development of the human central nervous system from spinal cord gestation through the third trimester. The contents of the atlases are organized by coronal, sagittal, and horizontal planes of sectioning to ensure that nearly every structure in the developing brain is represented pictorially. Each volume provides two page spreads containing high resolution black and white images on one side and ghost images on the other with unabbreviated labels to apprise readers of the exact structures identified. The final volume provides a concluding essay that summarizes major events of CNS development, while offering a theoretical account of the morphogenetic processes involved. For more details, readers can access information specific to each volume: Vol. 1: Cat. No. 1420 The Spinal Cord from Gestational Week 4 to the 4th Postnatal Month Vol. 2: Cat. No. 1421 The Human Brain During the Second Trimester Vol. 3: Cat. No. 1422 The Human Brain During the Third Trimester Vol. 4: Cat. No. 1423 The Human Brain During the Late First Trimester Vol. 5: Cat. No. 1424 The Human Brain During the Early First Trimester From the 1960s through the 1980s, the work of legendary pioneers, Shirley Bayer and Joseph Altman chronicled the development of the rat nervous system. In the 1990s, they shifted their attention to humans when they realized how little was known about the development of the human central nervous system. Many disorders resulting from abnormal neural deficits could be better understood if normal development was itself better known. Bayer and Altman decided to apply their knowledge of rat nervous system development to humans by directly examining histological sections of normal human specimens. Funding their own work, they took over 10,000 photographs of the best preserved specimens available. Each of the photos was then scanned to create digitalized files that could be further examined with sophisticated equipment, including 3- dimensional reconstruction software. This set of atlases is the result of this effort. "We embarked on this ambitious project for two reasons. First, to fill a gaping void in the literature. ...Second, we hoped that by extrapolating from the experimental data obtained in animals, we could go beyond a mere narrative account of developmental landmarks in human CNS development to a dynamic analysis of some of the morphogenetic processes involved. What we were surprised to find is that our detailed examination of the full course of CNS development in normal human embryos and fetuses has come to shed new light on some of the basic mechanisms involved in the production, migration, differentiation, and assembly of CNS neurons...." This information is included in an extended monograph in Volume 5 that will no doubt serve as a launching pad for future research. Altman and Bayer, working for three decades at Purdue and Indiana Universities, revolutionized the research methods and pioneered the results that are available today.

The present edition of The Human Central Nervous System differs considerably from its predecessors. In previous editions, the text was essentially confined to a section dealing with the various functional systems of the brain. This section, which has been rewritten and updated, is now preceded by 15 newly written chapters, which introduce the pictorial material of the gross anatomy, the blood vessels and meninges and the microstructure of its various parts and deal with the development, topography and functional anatomy of the spinal cord, the brain stem and the cerebellum, the diencephalon and the telencephalon. Great pains have been taken to cover the most recent concepts and data. As suggested by the front cover, there is a focus on the evolutionary development of the human brain. Throughout the text numerous correlations with neuropathology and clinical n- rology have been made. After much thought, we decided to replace the full Latin terminology, cherished in all previous editions, with English and Anglicized Latin terms. It has been an emotional farewell from beautiful terms such as decussatio hipposideriformis W- nekinkii and pontes grisei caudatolenticulares. Not only the text, but also the p- torial material has been extended and brought into harmony with the present state of knowledge. More than 230 new illustrations have been added and many others have been revised. The number of macroscopical sections through the brain has been extended considerably. Together, these illustrations now comprise a complete and convenient atlas for interpreting neuroimaging studies.

To repair the injured, malformed or degenerating human central nervous system, we have to understand the functioning of the healthy human CNS on cellular and integrative levels to learn what changed in the neural networks. Since there is some similarity between development and repair, also the development of the human CNS has to be studied. Especially the strategy of movement-based learning of the CNS to eliminate occurring errors during development is of interest because it can also be used during repair. In this book, movement patters which have the highest rate of re-learning movement are analysed as well as higher mental functions. The therapy using these efficient movement-based learning movements is called Coordination Dynamics Therapy (CDT).
