Such "maps" are given in any good
Neuroanatomy text. The wholes of
such texts are, literally, such "maps".

My favorite is =Human Neuroanatomy=,
by Carpenter and Sutin [before that by
Truex and Carpenter]. I checked for it
on amazon.com a while back, though,
and could only find some used copies.

[Anyone else know the Publication-state
of this text?]

To come up to speed in working with
the "maps" given in such texts requires
some devoted-study.

Cheers, ken [k. p. collins]
