Covering the detailed anatomy, physiology, and clinical aspects of the temporal lobe and the limbic system, this monograph makes a timely appearance because of the widespread interest in this subject in relation to epilepsy, Alzheimer's disease, and schizophrenia. The structural and functional information serves as an important foundation for the detailed anatomical knowledge necessary for the interpretation of imaging. The components of the temporal lobe are characterized. The temporal isocortex is considered from the point of view of its principal cellular constituents, connectivity, columnar organization, and how the cortex embodies experience. The cortical association areas for vision, audition, degustation, visceral sensory function, and olfaction are treated in detail, and the cortical area of the temporal lobe relating to speech is discussed. The structure of the insula, the temporal cortex, and its connectivity to the thalamus, pulvinar, striatum, and claustrum are described thoroughly. A chapter reviews the structure, connections and functions of the olfactory system, as well as its social aspects and pathological conditions. The largest chapter deals with the hippocampus--its anatomy and connections, its cellular architectonics, its relation to memory, and its varied functions. The final chapter details the amygdala, its connections, and its significant role in temporal lobe seizures.

Pierre Gloor, Professor Emeritus of Neurology, Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University.Review:
"... an authoritative in-depth reference source on all aspects of the temporal lobe and limbic system ... It will remain the standard reference source for many years." Overall rating: Excellent -- CMA Journal (Dec 1997)
"This encyclopedic volume is a fitting testimony to the authors....This work is an exhaustive treatise on all aspects of the temporal lobe and limbic system...The figures are particularly well-chosen....This is...a book...to savor and digest in small portions as an authoritative in-depth
reference source on all aspects of the temporal lobe and limbic system...It will remain the standard reference source for many years."--Canadian Medical Association Journal
"This book is monumental in every sense of the word....As the Decade of the Brain and the millennium draw to a close, it is worth reflecting on the fact that principles of neuropsychology were so closely and fundamentally woven into the fabric of what is surely one of this century's most
important neuroscientific works."--Journal of International Neuropsychological Society
