Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

M.-Marsel Mesulam, M.D., edited the first edition of Principles of Behavioral Neurology in 1985, and it rapidly became a classic, embodying a combination of basic neuroscience and clinical information about the brain and behavior, together with a methods manual for bedside testing of patients. In the 15 years between editions, the field of "cognitive neuroscience" has grown exponentially. In addition, the new applications of functional magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography have linked basic neuroscience with clinical brain imaging in ways not previously possible.
