Overview

In Neurobehavioral Anatomy, Christopher M. Filley provides a timely introduction to the organization of human behavior within the structure of the brain. Writing from the viewpoint of behavioral neurology, he outlines how cognitive and emotional functions are represented in the brain to produce the many behaviors regarded as uniquely human. The effects of focal and diffuse brain lesions are reviewed, and from this analysis emerges a conception of the normal operations of the brain in health. The author has combined essential information from many sources into a concise synthesis describing an overview of brain-behavior relationships. Clinically practical and theoretically stimulating, this book demonstrates that the understanding of the mind must consider the anatomy of the brain.
