The latter presents a complete picture of cellular configuration in relationship with the myelinated fiber tracts in a single microscopic slide enlarged four to eight times.

An up-to-date blending of knowledge of nervous system structure and function without sacrificing anatomical detail has been achieved to a significantly greater degree than in previous editions. The physiological results of ablation and stimulation are correlated with the anatomical substrate, including newer
