Professor George Paxinos is currently funded by two national and two international agencies to construct atlases of the brain and spinal cord. He published 34 books and 146 articles in refereed journals and 28 book chapters. He discovered more nuclei (brain structures) and homologies in mammals and birds than anyone in nearly 100 years. All his atlases are characterised by excellence, with his first work, The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, being the most cited Australian publication and the only neuroscience publication in the Thomson 50 most cited list. The total number of citations for all his works is 53,904.
