"One of the things I like most about this book is that it attaches importance to both neuroscience and clinical practice.... The multiple authorship have indeed acted to ensure that the topics have not been treated in a cursory fashion. The contributors have shown thorough and meticulous scholarship in tracking down available historical material.... [T]he book is strongly recommended to anyone dealing with patients having neuropsychiatric disorders or to those with an interest in neurobiology of these disorders."-- "British Journal of Psychiatry"
"In the 1950s MacLean postulated that the limbic system mediated emotions; it is most exciting to see flesh and data now clothe this hypothesis. This volume should be read by everyone interested in brain-behavior relationships. Not only is it instructive about the neuroanatomy of the limbic system but it is full of useful clinical descriptions and correlations of structure and function that the clinician will find most practical and useful. This volume is a testament to the progress of the field of neuropsychiatry; it well fulfills the promise of the Decade of the Brain."-- "Gary J. Tucker, M.D., Professor and Chairman, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington"
" "The Neuropsychiatry of Limbic and Subcortical Disorders"... provides an overview of limbic/subcortical neurobiology and its relevance to fundamental functions such as memory, emotion, motivation, and mood, as well as to the clinical syndromes resulting from dysfunction of these brain systems. The contributors to this volume are renowned experts in their respective fields, and they have presented complex material in a very readable format. This book is a 'must read' for anyone interested in the neurobiology of human behavior and experience."-- "C. Edward Coffey, M.D., Vice President, Henry Ford Behavioral Services, Chairman and Kathleen and Earl Ward Chair of Psychiatry, Henry Ford Health System, Detroit, Michigan"
