Behavior and Mood Disorder in Focal Brain Lesions

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

The publication of this book could not have been timelier. The burgeoning literature on the topic of neurophysiology and emotions, new discoveries relating to neurotransmitters and neuropharmacologic issues, and the "Mind-Body" topic of this year’s meeting of the American Psychiatric Association reflect the massive interest in this topic. Nothing prepared me more for those meetings than this publication. The progression and expansion of our understanding of the limbic system from the concepts of Willis, Broca, and Papez to the 2 dozen or so structures receiving serotonergic, dopaminergic, and noradrenergic neurons have allowed for this neural correlate of behavior.
