Anatomy of Neuropsychiatry "The New Anatomy of the Basal Forebrain and Its Implications for Neuropsychiatric Illness"

Anatomy of Neuropsychiatry: The New Anatomy of the Basal Forebrain and Its Implications for Neuropsychiatric Illness, Second Edition presents the anatomical systems that take part in the scientific and clinical study of emotional functions and neuropsychiatric disorders. The book 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. Newly revised, this book now includes chapters focusing on the anatomy of Basal Forebrain and Cerebellum Macrosystems and the role these macrosystems paly in motion, emotion, and neuropsychiatric illnesses. This book will help reader develop an understanding of the gross anatomical organization of the human forebrain.
