About this book

Introduction

The Prenatal Mouse Brain Atlas is the only comprehensive book available for studies of mouse brain development from early embryonic to late fetal stages. Color images of whole, hematoxylin, and eosin stained sagittal, coronal, and horizontal sections are provided at four different ages. In addition, high magnification images are included that highlight areas of developmental interest. The atlas is designed to support research of normal and abnormal brain development in developmental neuroscience, gene manipulation, molecular biology, and neurotoxicology.

Key Features:

  • Color images of hematoxylin and eosin stained sections
  • 26 High magnification images, highlighting areas of developmental interest
  • 254 images and matching diagrams with outlined and annotated structures:

 Gestational Day (GD) 12 heads:

   16 GD 12 sagittal
   22 GD 12 coronal
   18 GD 12 horizontal

 GD 14  heads:

   20 GD 14 sagittal
   33 GD 14 coronal
   24 GD 14 horizontal

 GD 16 brains:   

   16 GD 16 sagittal
   30 GD 16 coronal
   17 GD 16 horizontal

 GD 18 brains:
   17 GD 18 sagittal
   26 GD 18 coronal
   15 GD 18 horizontal

  • Delineation of peripheral nerves, eyes, inner ear, ganglia and other structures in the heads of GD 12 and 14 embryos
  • DVD with complete sets of images, labeled diagrams, and diagrams superimposed on images
