  • Provides the first neonatal rat brain atlas
  • Includes individual plates in color with clear labels from three different ages during the early development of the rat
  • Offers views of sagittal and coronal sections
  • Describes methods used to obtain images


Atlas of the Neonatal Rat Brain provides photographic, histological illustrations of the anatomical features of the neonatal rat brain at postnatal (P) days P-1, P-7, and P-14.

The sections are Nissl stained with Cresyl violet, creating photomicrographs with high resolution and clarity. The structures are directly labeled on the images, making it easier to correlate data. Additional images are available as electronic resources for individuals who seek images not represented in this volume, and the electronic version allows labels to be removed so the atlas can be used as a teaching tool.

The P-1 section contains 30 coronal plates and 14 sagittal plates and the P-7 section includes 27 coronal plates and 24 sagittal plates. The final P-14 section shows 41 coronal plates and 21 sagittal plates. Each set consists of contiguous sections from individual animals, and selections were based on the structural variability represented.
