Welcome to the website of the
Dejerine’s Atlas

Jules Dejerine (1849-1917) and Augusta Dejerine-Klumpke (1859-1927) published in 1895
the first part of their book "Anatomie des centres nerveux".
Since then the atlas has become a standard reference for the morphology of the nervous system
for both teaching and for neurological research and clinical work.

The aim of the present project is to provide an online digital atlas.

Online Atlas

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.
The website describes the brain as Jules Dejerine and Augusta Dejerine-Klumpke did it in 1885. The website gives definitions of the anatomical terms and a 3D-reconstruction.
