The limbic system (also known as the paleomammalian brain) is a collection of brain structures located in the middle of the brain. It is not a discrete system itself but rather a collection of structures-anatomically related but varying greatly in function. The limbic system is the centre for emotional responsiveness, motivation, memory formation and integration, olfaction, and the mechanisms to keep ourselves safe (

This book is a guide to surgical procedures for the limbic system. Beginning with an overview of brain embryology and anatomy, each of the following sections covers surgical approaches for disorders in different parts of the limbic system. Procedures are explained in a step by step approach, with emphasis on anatomical markers and avoidance of complications.

The final chapters discuss brain mapping during surgery, giant and unusual tumours, and vascular lesions.

Authored by a team of highly experienced, Illinois and Wisconsin-based neurosurgeons, the book is enhanced by anatomical dissections, operative photographs and illustrations, and includes a DVD ROM demonstrating surgical procedures.
