The Brain and Behavior

An Introduction to Behavioral Neuroanatomy

The Brain and Behavior

Now in its third edition, The Brain and Behavior continues on its mission to present a simplified and accessible introduction to behavioral neuroanatomy. Human behavior is a direct reflection of the anatomy of the central nervous system, and it is the goal of the behavioral neuroscientist to uncover its neuroanatomical basis. Much of the new content in this edition reflects advances in functional magnetic resonance imaging. 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. Case examples are explored to set the neuroanatomy in the context of clinical experience. This will be essential reading for behavioral clinicians including psychiatrists, neuropsychiatrists, neurologists, psychologists and clinical neuroscientists.

'This third edition should be required reading for all psychiatry residents and psychiatrists. The information it provides is needed to practice psychiatry for the next few decades.' Doody's

'For this introductory textbook, the reader would not need to possess much prior knowledge in the field. In fact, exactly because of its clarity and succinctness it presents an excellent starting point altogether. … essential reading for trainees, but the book may also appeal to several groups of professionals (academic or clinical) including neuropsychologists, clinical psychologists, neuropsychiatrists, neurologists and neuroscientists, especially early in their career.'
