About this book

Introduction

 

This book offers a precise description of the anatomy of human hippocampus in view of neurosurgical progress and the wealth of medical imaging methods available. A survey of the current concepts explains the functions of the hippocampus and describes its external and internal vascularisation. Head sections and magnetic resonance images complete this comprehensive view of human hippocampal anatomy. It will be of interest to neuroscientists and, in particular, to neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists and neurologists.
