Damasio illustrates this point by presenting voxel renderings of the cortical surfaces of 26 different brains. In addition, the major cerebral sulci and gyri are identified and the approximate boundaries of Brodmann's areas are delineated for 2 of the 26 brains - one which is dolichocephalic and one which is brachycephalic. These illustrations are particularly important since the accurate definition of gyral anatomy and its relationship to lesions or patterns of activation are critical to any clinical or scientific investigation of functional neuroanatomy.
With increasingly powerful computer hardware and software such as Brainvox, 3-D reconstructions of the brain will probably become more routine, and both clinicians and researchers will have ready access to meaningful images of structures at the surface of the brain cortical gyral anatomy and in its depths subcortical nuclei, tumors and other structural lesions. For now, however, many of us must continue to perform this complex computation in our heads using landmarks and memorized spatial relations among structures.
Hanna Damasio's new book provides for us a convenient and smooth bridge between old and new technologies by showing us the limitations of the old, how best to compensate for these limitations, and how to use the new as it becomes available.

This appears a timely decision since, besides providing an excellent treaty on this field of neurosciences, it also contributes to the debate concerning the role of clinical neurophysiology in the academic courses of the medical faculties in Europe as well as an individual specialty both in Europe and in the US.
In this first volume electromyography, electroneurography and all the modalities for evoked potential testing are treated, while in the companion volume basic principles and clinical applications of electroencephalography will be analyzed.
Although the planum temporale is similar in deaf and hearing subjects, we found that these two groups had differences in other structures. By comparing the image on the left, showing the sulci Figs.

The volume opens by addressing the principles of neurophysiological techniques including fundamental aspects on the genesis of electric action potentials within neuronal aggregates and nerve fibers, as well as on the technological basis for their recordings.

Summary Spectacular recent developments in neuroimaging technologies have vastly increased the amount of information about brain structure that can be obtained from tomographic scans. Prepared by a leading expert in advanced brain-imaging techniques, this unique atlas illustrates the wide range of neuroanatomical variation in a collection of normal human brains in three-dimensional computerized reconstructions of MR scans of living persons.
It also provides sections of a single brain so that the same structure presented in the section of one incidence can be identified in the section of another incidence that intersects it.
Axial and coronal sections of another brain with a different overall configuration are included at the two most frequently used incidences so that readers will get a sense of the "correction" that they may need to apply to standard images. The atlas is based on a voxel-rendering technique developed in the author's laboratory that permits the reconstruction of the brain in three dimensions with about the same degree of precision in identifying major sulci and gyri that can be achieved at the autopsy table. The images used throughout the atlas have not been beautified; the contours have been left ragged for greater anatomical detail.
Thirteen pages of color illustrations are also included. The first of its kind, this atlas will be an essential tool for neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists and neuroscientists, as well as for medical and neuroscience students.

This book provides an atlas of the normal human brain based on three dimensional reconstructions of magnetic resonance scans obtained in normal living. Modern tomographic scans are revealing the structure of the human brain in unprecedented detail. This spectator progress, however, poses a critical problem for.
