Stereotaxic Atlas for the Mac

Concerning your letter about sterotaxic atlases for the Mac or PC. I used 
BrainBrowser in England, which is set up for the rat.This was set up to 
run on the Mac and needed Hypercard 2.0 or better. It was useful because 
it had a number of sterotaxic sections in each of three orientations 
from the rat sterotaxic atlas by Hames and Higgins. It wasn't too bad, 
and if you have a digitiser you could probably add more sections to the 
hypercard stack. You could also draw maps linking neurons with pathways 
and it had a number of other features like a neuroanatomy tutor and a 
section where you could add your own written text. I found it adaptable 
and user friendly. If you look in the Neuroscience section under the 
biology section of the world wide web subject catalogue, you will find
a section about Brain Browser.
I don't know of a human atlas, but the authors of the Brain Browser 
package where supposed to be doing something on this.
Write back if you want more information.
