Summary In this edition, for the first time since the first edition, delineations have been drawn entirely anew (on the basis of a new set of sections). Eighteen hitherto unknown nuclei are identified. The volume includes: 161 coronal diagrams based on a single brain ; delineations drawn entirely new from a new set of sections; diagrams spaced at constant 120 æm intervals resulting in the high resolution and convenience of use; drawings using blue color lines and black labels to facilitate extraction of information; and the stereotaxic grid was derived using the same techniques that produced the widely praised stereotaxic grid of the previous editions. Over 1000 structures are identified, a number for the first time in this edition
