brain "atlas" consists of a periodic series of stained
sections through a brain. Study of such a series, allows the
viewer to identify the several hundred cell groupings or nuclei
that can be seen in the brains of every mammal in the collections.
For this specimen, all sections were cut at 35 microns thickness
and every even-numbered section was stained with a cellular
stain (thionin), and every odd-numbered section was stained
with a fiber (myelin sheath) stain (hematoxylin). This specimen
was an adult male. Brain weight = 436 grams.
cell-stained coronal sections are presented from near the
front of the brain to the caudal brainstem and cerebellum.
There are over 50 sections displayed here: from section #140
at the front, to section #2460 caudally.
