Human Amygdala by Paul J. Whalen
Book DescriptionBuilding on pioneering animal studies, and making use of new, noninvasive techniques for studying the human brain, research on the human amygdala has blossomed in recent years. This comprehensive volume brings together leading authorities to synthesize current knowledge on the amygdala and its role in psychological function and dysfunction. Initial chapters discuss how animal models have paved the way for work with human subjects. Next, the book examines the amygdala's involvement in emotional processing, learning, memory, and social interaction. The final section presents key advances in understanding specific clinical disorders: anxiety disorders, depression, schizophrenia, autism, and Alzheimer's disease. Illustrations include 39 color plates.

Author Biography - Paul J. Whalen
Paul J. Whalen, PhD, is Assistant Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College, USA. The focus of Dr. Whalen's research is to better understand the neural substrates of biologically relevant learning in the human. To this end, his laboratory studies the human amygdala as a model system for such learning. Elizabeth A. Phelps, PhD, is Professor of Psychology at New York University, USA. Dr. Phelps's research examines the cognitive neuroscience of emotion, learning, and memory. Her primary focus has been to understand how human learning and memory are changed by emotion and to investigate the neural systems mediating their interactions.
