A Modern Online Digital Dejerine Atlas (http://dejerineatlas.com)
This contemporary, online and digital Dejerine’s Atlas consists of various chapters that were listed on pages 310 to 311 in the original Dejerine’s atlas, together with an account of the abbreviations used in the drawings provided by H. Gillet.Dejerine started by describing the lateral fossa (01) then the insula (02) and the central lobe (03) corresponding to the pre‐central and the post central gyri (the first belonging to the frontal lobe, the second to the parietal lobe). Dejerine continued with the frontal (04), parietal (05), temporal (06), and occipital (07) lobes. Dejerine finished by providing an account of the limbic lobe (08) that corresponds to the description of the cingulate gyrus and the parahippocampal gyrus and the hippocampus. Each chapter presents a translation of the terms listed by Dejerine on pages 310 and 311 that have been adapted to today’s terminology, except when it is not possible to find equivalent terms in the Terminologia Anatomica (TA: Terminologia anatomica, 1998, Georg Thieme Verlag). such cases, a simple translation of Dejerine’s terminology is used.Each anatomical term is defined in accordance with Dejerine’s description in his atlas. The definition of a term starts with the anatomical term found in the Terminologia Anatomica in English, Latin, French, and Spanish. In addition, we provide the numerical classifications found within both the Terminologia Anatomica and the Terminologia Humana Anatomica (THA Fribourg. http://www.unifr.ch/ifaa ).Based on the descriptions within the Dejerine atlas, the cytoarchitectural boundaries of the cortical mantle have been manually delineated in 3D on the 400μm resolution BigBrain (Amuntz et al., 2013), using MRICron [http:/www.mricro.com]. A 3D reconstruction of the drawings using Vizua 3D has allowed us to add labels and to offer descriptions of the anatomical terms.
