By Lennart Heimer, Gary W. Van Hoesen, Michael Trimble M.D., Daniel S. Zahm

Anatomy of Neuropsychiatry presents the anatomical platforms that participate in the medical and medical examine of emotional features and neuropsychiatric issues. It discusses the limbic system-the cortical and subcortical constructions within the human mind serious about emotion, motivation, and emotional organization with memory-at size and the way this can be not an invaluable advisor to the research of psychiatric problems. The e-book presents an realizing of mind anatomy, with an emphasis at the new anatomical framework which has emerged over the last zone century. The target is to aid the reader strengthen an knowing of the gross anatomical association of the human forebrain.

  • A re-examination of mind anatomy, with an emphasis at the new anatomical framework which has emerged over the last region century
  • A compellingly accelerated conceptualization of Broca's recognized limbic lobe
  • Clinical and easy technological know-how containers highlighting particular techniques, constructions, or neuronal circuits from a medical standpoint

Example text

But this is only part of the problem with the septum, another difficulty being that investigators over the years have tended to lump it, or the so-called “septal area,” with a number of other structures. MacLean (1990), for instance, included the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (Figs. 1B and C) in his concept of septum (p. 288). The confusion surrounding this structure becomes even more understandable when one considers the writings of Heath (1954), who, in his studies of psychiatric patients, described a “septal region” close to the midline and extending from the rostral tip of the anterior horn of the lateral ventricle to the level of the anterior commissure (roughly 2 cm in the rostrocaudal dimension).

This is a pertinent question (Swanson and Petrovich, 1998), and it may come as a surprise that we still debate the anatomical organization of such a 1 Substantia innominata is often referred to as the “substantia innominata of Reichert” for the simple reason that in his atlas of the human brain, Reichert (1859) left part of the area underneath the temporal limb of the anterior commissure unnamed. It may be more appropriate, however, to attribute the term to the German anatomist Johann Christian Reil (1809), who included the region in what he referred to as “die ungennante Mark-Substanz,” which he observed by stripping the optic tract caudally toward the region of the lateral geniculate body.

These phrases became metaphors for a more or less consensus, albeit inaccurate (see Chapter 3), conceptualization of the functional-anatomical organization of the forebrain (see Clinical Box 3). Since a number of different limbic systems are in circulation (Anthoney, 1994), it follows that what the limbic system includes and does have always to some extent depended on the preferences and interests of its describers. This being the case, it is understandable that the limbic system kept expanding as more and more structures with close connections to the “original” limbic system components were described.
