Product Description

From the Back Cover

The Prenatal Mouse Brain Atlas is the only comprehensive book available for studies of mouse brain development from early embryonic to late fetal stages. Color images of whole, hematoxylin, and eosin stained sagittal, coronal, and horizontal sections are provided at four different ages. In addition, high magnification images are included that highlight areas of developmental interest. The atlas is designed to support research of normal and abnormal brain development in developmental neuroscience, gene manipulation, molecular biology, and neurotoxicology.

Key Features:

  • Color images of hematoxylin and eosin stained sections
  • 26 High magnification images, highlighting areas of developmental interest
  • 254 images and matching diagrams with outlined and annotated structures:

 Gestational Day (GD) 12 heads:

   16 GD 12 sagittal
   22 GD 12 coronal
   18 GD 12 horizontal

 GD 14  heads:

   20 GD 14 sagittal
   33 GD 14 coronal
   24 GD 14 horizontal

 GD 16 brains:

3.0 out of 5 stars Free the mice, it's springtime Sept. 22 2012
By Ashtar Command - Published on Amazon.com
This is a bizarre book showing large, full-page photos of vivisected mouse brains in various stages of development. Or decomposition? There is almost no text. The brains belong to the C57 B1/6J, an inbred mouse strain from the Jackson Laboratories. Tissues were dehydrated in an ascending series of ethanols and toluene and embedded in Paraplast.

I hope this research will eventually solve the problem of diabetes, obesity or Midwestern rust belts. If not, some ethical committee might want to take a closer look at the Jackson Laboratories...
