Abstract:

The stereotaxic atlas of the chimpanzee brain was designed to provide previously unavailable data on the deep structures of the chimpanzee brain. Extensive illustrative material provides frontal and sagittal sections, as well as a large number of drawings, all of which are accompanied by measurement scales. The greater intelligence of the chimpanzee, and the fact that the complexity of electrical activity of the chimpanzee brain approaches the complex patterns of man have made it highly desirable to be able to manipulate its deep brain system. Analyses of the effects of stimulation, ablation, and recording in the chimpanzee brain are likely to reveal information on brain organization having close relevance to human brain function in health and disease.
