Key Features

* A re-evaluation of brain anatomy, with an emphasis on the new anatomical framework which has emerged during the last quarter century
* A compellingly expanded conceptualization of Broca's famous limbic lobe
* Clinical and basic science boxes highlighting specific concepts, structures, or neuronal circuits from a clinical perspective

Description

This book presents the anatomical systems that take part in the scientific and clinical study of emotional functions and neuropsychiatric disorders. It discusses the limbic system-the cortical and subcortical structures in the human brain involved in emotion, motivation, and emotional association with memory-at length and how this is no longer a useful guide to the study of psychiatric disorders. The book provides an understanding of brain anatomy, with an emphasis on the new anatomical framework which has emerged during the last quarter century. The goal is to help the reader develop an understanding of the gross anatomical organization of the human forebrain.
