The original intent of this book remains the same in this second edition. The student is our foremost consideration. The Atlas' function is classroom-oriented, it supplements but does not replace textbooks heavily weighted towards electron microscopy, it provides concise structural/functional correlations, and all structures are clearly and directly identified and labeled for easy and precise use.
The two original authors of this Atlas have welcomed another colleague to assist in this latest effort. Paul M. Heidger, Jr., Ph.D., brings expertise in several areas of histology and cell biology, and his touch can be found throughout the Atlas' pages.
We are indebted to Terence H. Williams, M.D., Ph.D., D.Sc., for allowing us to photograph human brain stem sections from his collection; and to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP) and Edward R. White, M.D., Associate Director of AFIP, for giving us permission to photograph human brain stem sections from the Paul Yakovlev collection; to Mohamad Haleem, Curator of the Medical Museum of AFIP, for his assistance in the study and selection of material from the Yakovlev collection; especially to Paul Reimann for photographing the brain sections (and others); and to Mrs. Helen Fankhauser for assisting in the preparation of the Kodachromes. The Yakovlev collection is supported by Grant Y01-NS- 7-0032-00 from NINCDS to AFIP.
