This book is written with the behavioural clinician and student in mind. It conveys the immense complexity of the neuronal circuitry that subserves our cognitive and emotional lives. At the same time, it presents the reader with a simplified view of the neuroanatomy that underlies certain behaviors.

Now in its fourth edition, The Brain and Behavior clearly and concisely introduces the field of the neurobiology of human behavior to a wide audience, from graduate students to professionals in the fields of psychology, psychiatry, and neurology. This complex topic is made visually accessible through clear and focused illustrations.From the Back Cover:
This book, developed by a neuroanatomist and a psychiatrist, is the first anatomy text to acknowledge the growing acceptance of an inextricable link between the "organic" and behavioral dimensions of medicine. In spite of the explosion of information associated with the new neuropsychiatry, spurred by advances in brain imaging, brain "mapping" and research in neurochemistry, there is no textbook of neuroanatomy that embraces this new approach to psychiatric disorders. Behavioral Neuroanatomy will serve as a short course or review on the structure and function of the central nervous system and its clinical relevance to diagnosing and managing mental illness.
