Description - The Neuropsychiatry of Limbic and Subcortical Disorders by Stephen P. Salloway
Limbic and subcortical brain regions mediate fundamental functions such as memory, emotion, motivation and mood. Limbic and subcortical systems also play a key neurobiological role in other important aspects of human experience, such as substance abuse, reward systems, and religious experience. Most neuropsychiatric disorders involve dysfunction of subcortical structures or the limbic or paralimbic cortex. Dysfunction of temporolimbic systems produces some of the most dramatic and challenging syndromes in clinical medicine. A contribution to the literature on limbic-subcortical systems and neuropsychiatric illness, this text presents and overview of functional limbic anatomy and provides a report on limbic-related syndromes. Part One covers the functional neuroanatomy of limbic and subcortical systems. This emphasis on neuroanatomy provides a foundation for Part Two, which focuses on the limbic system and clinical neuropsychiatric syndromes. Throughout this volume, extensive literature reviews serve as comprehensive reference sources. Many chapters include colour illustrations to depict key points.
