    Product Description:

    Many hundreds of thousands suffer spinal cord injuries leading to loss  
    of sensation and motor function in the body below the point of injury.  
    Spinal cord research has made some significant strides towards new  
    treatment methods, and is a focus of many laboratories worldwide. In  
    addition, research on the involvement of the spinal cord in pain and the
     abilities of nervous tissue in the spine to regenerate has
    increasingly  been on the forefront of biomedical research in the past
    years. The  Spinal Cord, a collaboration with the Christopher and Dana
    Reeve  Foundation, is the first comprehensive book on the anatomy of the
     mammalian spinal cord. Tens of thousands of articles and dozens of
    books  are published on this subject each year, and a great deal of  
    experimental work has been carried out on the rat spinal cord. Despite  
    this, there is no comprehensive and authoritative atlas of the mammalian
     spinal cord. Almost all of the fine details of spinal cord anatomy
    must  be searched for in journal articles on particular subjects. This
    book  addresses this need by providing both a comprehensive reference on
    the  mammalian spinal cord and a comparative atlas of both rat and
    mouse  spinal cords in one convenient source. The book provides a
    descriptive  survey of the details of mammalian spinal cord anatomy,
    focusing on the  rat with many illustrations from the leading experts in
    the field and  atlases of the rat and the mouse spinal cord. The rat
    and mouse spinal  cord atlas chapters include photographs of Nissl
    stained transverse  sections from each of the spinal cord segments
    (obtained from a single  unfixed spinal cord), detailed diagrams of each
    of the spinal cord  segments pictured, delineating the laminae of Rexed
    and all other  significant neuronal groupings at each level and
    photographs of  additional sections displaying markers such as
    acetylcholinesterase  (AChE), calbindin, calretinin, choline
    acetlytransferase, neurofilament  protein (SMI 32), enkephalin,
    calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP),  and neuronal nuclear protein
    The text provides a detailed account of the anatomy of the mammalian spinal cord and surrounding musculoskeletal elements.
    The major topics addressed are:
    . development of the spinal cord
    . the gross anatomy of the spinal cord and its meninges
    . spinal nerves, nerve roots, and dorsal root ganglia
    . the vertebral column, vertebral joints, and vertebral muscles
    . blood supply of the spinal cord
    . cytoarchitecture and chemoarchitecture of the spinal gray matter
    . musculotopic anatomy of motoneuron groups
    . tracts connecting the brain and spinal cord
    . spinospinal pathways
    . sympathetic and parasympathetic elements in the spinal cord
    . neuronal groups and pathways that control micturition
    . the anatomy of spinal cord injury in experimental animals
    The atlas of the rat and mouse spinal cord has the following features:
    . Photographs of Nissl stained transverse sections from each of 34 spinal segments for the rat and mouse.
    . Detailed diagrams of each of the 34 spinal segments for rat and mouse,
     delineating the laminae of Rexed and all other significant neuronal  
    groupings at each level.
    . Alongside each of the 34 Nissl stained segments, there are additional
    sections displaying markers such as acetylcholinesterase, calbindin,  
    calretinin, choline acetlytransferase, neurofilament protein (SMI 32),  
    and neuronal nuclear protein (NeuN).
    . All the major motoneuron clusters are identified in relation to the individual muscles or muscle groups they supply.
