Guide to Research Techniques in Neuroscience, 2E – The new revised edition of the best-selling introduction to nearly every technique commonly used in neuroscience…an invaluable tool for students and instructors alike.

Atlas of the Human Brain, 4E – The contents of this atlas has been extensively expanded from 143 pages, showing 69 levels through the hemisphere, to 314 pages representing 99 levels.

The Prefrontal Cortex, 5E – A thorough update of the undisputed classic on the prefrontal cortex, presenting an interdisciplinary perspective that is lacking in other books on the subject.

MATLAB for Neuroscientists  – The only comprehensive software manual to serve as an introduction to programming in MATLAB, specifically tailored to neuroscientists and cognitive psychologists.

You’ll also find significant savings on your favorite atlases and neuroanatomy books including:

– Atlas of Early Zebrafish Brain Development

– Atlas of the Human Brain, 4th Edition

– Mouse Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, 4th Edition

– Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, 7th Edition



Stop by and meet some of our neuroscience authors and editors. All those present will be entered into two daily drawings to win one of their books! If you’re an author, be sure to pick up you Elsevier Author ribbon to add to your badge! It’s also a great time to meet with our editorial staff to talk to them about your book proposal!

Monday, Oct 19, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Tuesday Oct 20, 11:00 am – 12:00 noon

George Paxinos (Atlases) · Charles Watson (Atlases) · Pascal Wallach (MATLAB)

The scientific study of the nervous system is entering a new golden age. Researchers and clinicians continue to advance the treatment of conditions such as Alzheimer’s syndrome, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, and traumatic brain injury. Public initiatives like the federal Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) program in the United States, announced in April 2013, ensure that funding and resources will continue to be applied to this rapidly growing field. Elsevier’s journals, books, eBooks, online references, and tools are respected around the world for everything from physiology and pathology to behavioral genetics and nerve repair. Our publications are a gateway to the latest advancements in neuroscience research and leading-edge data for professionals, students, and academics alike.
