Neuroanatomical Techniques for Neurobehavioral Research
The coupling of modern neuroanatomical techniques with more behaviorally oriented approaches to problems of behavior and the brain has been extremely rare. This is unfortunate, in light of the arguments which have surrounded the interpretations of the anatomical substrate which underlies effects noted in various lesion and stimulation experiments (for example, the hypothalamus and regulation of feeding behavior). In this chapter we will discuss some of the newer anatomical techniques and attempt to demonstrate their relevance to neurobehavioral research.
