Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: To understanding emotions is to comprehend some of the major aspects of life and the interaction between environment and neuroscience. A review on the topic is important for a good many behavioral scientists.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to address the neurophysiology of emotions, a topic important to a small subgroup of neuroscientists.
Audience: The book is primarily written for neurologists, psychologists, and psychiatrists.
Features: Twenty authors contribute 12 chapters that progress from basic neuroanatomical and neurophysiological concepts to behavior, emotions, and the interaction with modern technology. The pictures and references aid in a better understanding of the material. The most interesting part is the potential interaction of science and robots in real life. I am not convinced, however, that a great number of readers will easily digest this book.
Assessment: This is an important book for psychiatry and psychology libraries.
