Show Summary Details


This chapter gives a description of three different sets of axial sections through the dolichocephalic brain shown in Chapter 2. These sets are obtained in relation to the canto meatal line: parallel, at -30° and +10°. For each axial set, a coronal set obtained at 90° to the axial incidence is also provided. These sequences are followed by a parasagital set of slices. The position of each slice on the brain is identified. Sulci, gyri, and subcortical structures are labeled in each slice. At the beginning of the chapter attention is directed to particular brain regions whose visual depiction changes depending on the incidence of the slice. The chapter closes with the axial slices parallel to the canto-meatal line now shown with lavels for Broadmann's cytoarchitectonic fields.

Keywords: axial slices; coronal slices; parasagital slices; sulci; gyri; cytoarchitectonic fields; subcortical structures
