Neuroanatomical Terminology

A Lexicon of Classical Origins and Historical Foundations

Larry Swanson

  • Each entry also has, where appropriate, chronological lists of nonstandard terms (nearly 11,000): translations, alternate spellings, earlier delineations before naming, earlier synonyms, later synonyms, and partly corresponding terms
  • Each standard term has a textual definition including the method used for identification, age, sex, and species to which it applies, and a citation to the first use of the term as so defined
  • The first complete defined vocabulary for all parts of the human nervous system that can be seen with functional imaging methods
  • A complete historical analysis of nomenclature in the Classical Period of Neuroanatomy until about 1840
