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.

Free the mice, it's springtime Sept. 22 2012
By Ashtar Command - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
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...
