Cytoarchitectonic Atlas of the Human Cerebral Cortex: In MNI Stereotaxic Space depicts the cellular structure of the human cortex, detailing the arrangement of neuronal cell bodies as well as the relationships between cytoarchitectonic boundaries and anatomical landmarks. Presentation in MNI Stereotaxic Space enables the atlas to serves as a useful working tool for structural/functional neuroimagers attempting to identify the cytoarchitectonic area within which a functional activation or a structural change has occurred. An introductory section discusses the history and current state of cytoarchitectonic studies, and a separate chapter on methods is also provided. Mapping of the frontal lobe, parietal lobe, insula, temporal lobe, occipital lobe, and white matter fascicule follows. * Presents architectonic areas on average MNI brain (rather than a single brain), so individual peculiarities of the surface morphology of any given brain are regularized, thus helping the reader to see the essence of the location of an area* Features full-page high quality photomicrographs for each cytoarchitectonic area of the cortex, with supplementary zoom images of particular details* Offers commentary on the relation of sulci and gyri to architectonic areas, which will be useful to those looking to identify the cortical area within which functional or structural changes happened* Contains section discussing white matter fasciculi that permit connectivity between the cytoarchitectonic areas* Includes commentary pages on how the relationship to nonhuman primate cortex (macaque monkey) enables links to be made to the primate species in which most of the experimental anatomical and physiological information has been and continues to be gathered

About Author

Dr. Petrides is a Professor of Psychology, Neurology and Neurosurgery at McGill University and the Director of the Neuropsychology/Cognitive Neuroscience Unit at Montreal Neurological Institute & Hospital. His research focuses on cognition / language / perception and involves the analysis of the functions of the frontal, temporal, and parietal neocortex and related subcortical neural structures. He is an Associate Editor for the ELS journal Neuropsychologia, has authored 172 journal articles (h-index = 48), and is the author of The Human Cerebral Cortex (2011), Neuroanatomy of Language Regions of the Brain (2013) as well as co-author of 3 other atlases.
