The complement to The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, Chemoarchitectonic Atlas of the Rat Brain, Third Edition, features a single brain series of high-quality plates stained with eight different markers, extensively annotated and labelled throughout. Plates from the previous edition of Chemoarchitectonic Atlas of the Rat Brain have been re-scanned at high resolution and are shown in color. Labeled structures have been revised, corrected, and updated, providing users with a streamlined, up-to-date, and highly accurate compendium of chemical markers. Researchers with a need to understand the detailed organization of the rat brain as well as structure/function relationships will need this atlas and its array of stains.

Professor George Paxinos, AO (BA, MA, PhD, DSc) completed his BA at The University of California at Berkeley, his PhD at McGill University, and spent a postdoctoral year at Yale University. He is the author of almost 50 books on the structure of the brain of humans and experimental animals, including The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, now in its 7th Edition, which is ranked by Thomson ISI as one of the 50 most cited items in the Web of Science. Dr. Paxinos paved the way for future neuroscience research by being the first to produce a three-dimensional (stereotaxic) framework for placement of electrodes and injections in the brain of experimental animals, which is now used as an international standard. He was a member of the first International Consortium for Brain Mapping, a UCLA based consortium that received the top ranking and was funded by the NIMH led Human Brain Project. Dr. Paxinos has been honored with more than nine distinguished awards throughout his years of research, including: The Warner Brown Memorial Prize (University of California at Berkeley, 1968), The Walter Burfitt Prize (1992), The Award for Excellence in Publishing in Medical Science (Assoc Amer Publishers, 1999), The Ramaciotti Medal for Excellence in Biomedical Research (2001), The Alexander von Humbolt Foundation Prize (Germany 2004), and more.
