The goal of this study is to give a precise description of human hippocampal anatomy in view of neurosurgical progress and the abundance of medical imaging. The book hence includes an atlas of hippocampal sections (coronal, horizontal, sagittal) and dissections. In addition to purely structural details, however, it would appear useful to provide a survey of the structure, connexions and functions of the hippocampus, to augment understanding of its complex organization.

This book offers a precise description of the anatomy and structure of the human hippocampus as well as a survey of the current concepts about its functions and their clinical implications. Chapters on vascularization and three-dimensional MRI complete the study and round off this comprehensive view of the human hippocampal anatomy. The topic of the book will be of interest for all who work in the field of neuroscience but, paticularly, neurologists, neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons concerned with epilepsy.Review:
From the reviews of the third edition:
"This is a highly specialised tome whose state aim is to give a precise description of human hippocampus anatomy ... . there are detailed photographs in black and white covering all aspects of hippocampal structure with detailed labelling and accompanying text. The text is readable and clearly written with extensive referencing. ... This book is principally an anatomy book and as such would serve a broad spectrum of scientists ... . a useful addition to the library of any specialist interested in the hippocampus." (Colin Watts, Acta Neurochirurgica, Vol. 147, 2005)
"The present third edition of ‘The Human Hippocampus’ provides a detailed description of the anatomy of the human hippocampal formation. ... the book provides useful very information for the neurosurgeon who looks for gross anatomical details of the hippocampus and its adjacent structures. ... it is a well-illustrated documentation of the gross anatomy of the human hippocampus useful for neurosurgeons and neurologists." (Michael Frotscher, Annals of Anatomy, Vol. 187, 2005)
"The Human Hippocampus is an excellent textbook indispensable to read for those who are interested in this structure. ... The text is short, in perfect correlation with the figures. The quality of figures is excellent in each chapter permitting the reader to easily understand the constitution of this difficult topic. The quality of presentation and the indexation is very accessible with good readability. This book is an extremely valuable update for the anatomists, researchers and neurosurgeons ... ." (F. Proust, Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy, Vol. 27 (6), 2005)
