This atlas of the brain stem brings up to date anatomical investigation primarily concerned with patterns of arrangement and morphological details of nerve cells as revealed by magnifications within the range of the ordinary microscope (cytoarchitectonics).

The first part of the monograph consists of a series of ninteen semischematic representative cross sections of the brain stem, accompanied by low-power photomicrographs. Descriptions of the individual nuclei, supplemented by photomicrographs of higher magnifications, compose the second part.

This atlas will prove of value to the neuroanatomist who is interested in the position and morphology of the individual nuclei and to the neuropathologist in his attempts to localize pathological processes and to distinguish abnormal from normal cell forms found within various regions of the brain stem. The neurophysiologist may find it useful to have available detailed human morphological data which can be correlated with those on experimental animals and with which his functional
