About this book

This volume is a new, timely and fitting extension to the "Handbook of Chemical Neuroanatomy", focussing on the neurochemical circuitry of the primate brain. The book will compliment the growing efforts to apply the analytical strategies of chemical neuroanatomy to the primate brain. The goal of this volume is to develop a broad-based coverage of human and non-human primate chemical neuroanatomic details together within a volume in which details on transmitters and systems can be appreciated. The eight comprehensive chapters that comprise this volume deal with large global concepts and datasets which not only create an initial coverage of the entire primate neuraxis, but also capture useful points of information on the chemical neuranatomy of the primate nervous system. This is an excellent, informative book, and a welcome addition to the sparse literature in this field.


Section I. A digital rosetta stone for primate brain terminology (D.M. Bowden, R.F. Martin). II. Neurobiology and neuropathology of the human hypothalamus (D.F. Swaab). III. Caudal pons and medulla oblongata (W.W. Blessing, W.P. Gai). IV. The primate locus coeruleus: the chemical neuroanatomy of the nucleus, its efferent projections, and its target receptors (S.L. Foote). V. The cholinergic system in the primate brain: basal forebrain and pontine-tegmental cell groups (S. de Lacalle, C.B. Saper). VI. Dopamine systems in the primate brain (D.A. Lewis, S.R. Sesack). VII. Chemical neuroanatomy of the primate insula cortex: relationship to cytoarchitectonics, connectivity, function and neurodegeneration (E.F. Mufson, T. Sobreviela, J.H. Kordower). VIII. Primate cingulate cortex chemoarchitecture and its disruption in Alzheimer's disease (B.A. Vogt, L.J. Vogt, E.A. Nimchinsky, P.R. Hof). I. A digital rosetta stone for primate brain terminology (D.M. Bowden, R.F. Martin). 1. Introduction. 2. Status of digital atlas development. 3. Neuronames: a semantic network of the classical neuroanatomical nomenclature. 4. The template atlas: image representation of the classical neuroanatomical nomenclature. 5. What a standard nomenclature and template atlas can do for you. II Neurobiology and neuropathology of the human hypothalamus (D.F. Swaab) . i. Introduction. 2. Nucleus Basalis of Meynert and diagonal band of Broca. 3. Islands of Calleja (insulae terminalis). 4. Suprachiasmatic nucleus. 5. Sexually dimorphic nucleus (intermediate nucleus, INAH-1). 6. Other hypothalamic sexually dimorphic structures (INAH-2,3, BST, SCN, anterior commissure; fig. 20). 7. Bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BST). 8. Supraoptic and paraventricular nucleus (SON, PVN). 9. The ventromedial nucleus (Nucleus of Cajal). 10. Dorsomedial nucleus. 11. Infundibular nucleus (arcuate nucleus) and subventricular nucleus. 12. Lateral tuberal nucleus. 13. Tuberomamillary nucleus. 14. Posterior hypothalamic nucleus. 15. Incerto hypothalamic cell group (A13). 16. Corpora mamillare. III Caudal pons and medulla oblongata (W.W. Blessing, W.P. Gai) . 1. Introduction. 2. The concept of the reticular formation. 3. Classification of lower brainstem neurons. 4. Motoneurons with axons innervating striated muscle (somatic or special visceral). 5. Parasympathetic preganglionic motoneurons. 6. Premotor neurons innervating brainstem motoneurons which project to striated muscle (somatic or special visceral). 7. Respiratory neurons in the lower brainstem. 8. The raphe nuclei in the human. 9. Lower brainstem neurons projecting to the spinal cord, including sympathetic premotor neurons. 10. Brainstem catecholamine-synthesizing neurons. 11. Neurons containing 5-HT, neuropeptide Y, or substance P. 12. Neurons synthesizing nitric oxide in lower brainstem of human. 13. Human ventrolateral medullary neurons containing P.N.M.T., PH8 or NADPH diaphorase. 14. Galanin-containing neurons in human medulla and pons.
