This new edition of a successful text retains the core aim of providing an accessible introduction to behavioral neuroanatomy. Human behavior directly reflects the anatomy of the central nervous system, and it is the goal of the behavioral neuroscientist to uncover the neuroanatomical basis of behavior. Recent developments in neuroimaging technologies have led to significant advances on this front. The text is presented in a highly structured and organized format to help the reader distinguish between issues of anatomical, behavioral and physiological relevance. Simplified and clear diagrams are provided throughout the chapters to illustrate key points.
