This atlas presents the path taken by each cranial nerve from its real and apparent origins along its intracanalicular and intracranial course to the peripheral organs it supplies. The associated arteries and veins are also described. The author has designed a number of superb original illustrations, including one representing the systematization of the facial nerve with its communicating branches, all the way to the lacrimal and salivary glands, and one depicting the audiovestibular organ in which the walls of the cochlea, vestibule and semicircular canals have been fenestrated so as to visualize the spiral organ of Corti, the utricle, ampullary crests, membranous labyrinth, etc. This excellent practical guide is an invaluable tool for otolaryngologists, anatomists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, radiologists, odontologists, ophthalmologists, neurologists, maxillofacial surgeons, stomatologists and other cranial specialists, as well as for medical students.
