About this book


This book offers a precise description of the anatomy and structure of the human hippocampus as well as a survey of the current concepts about its functions and their clinical implications. Chapters on vascularization and three-dimensional MRI complete the study and round off this comprehensive view of the human hippocampal anatomy. The topic of the book will be of interest for all who work in the field of neuroscience but, paticularly, neurologists, neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons concerned with epilepsy.
