This new edition, like previous ones, offers a precise description of the anatomy of the human hippocampus based upon neurosurgical progress and the wealth of medical imaging methods available. The first part describes the fine structures of the hippocampus and is illustrated with new original figures. A survey is then provided of current concepts explaining the functions of the hippocampus, and the external and internal hippocampal vascularization is precisely described. The last and main part of the book presents serial sections in coronal, sagittal, and axial planes; each section is accompanied by a drawing to explain the MR 3T images. The new edition is also enriched by several MRI views of major hippocampal diseases. This comprehensive atlas of human hippocampal anatomy will be of interest to all neuroscientists, including neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, and neurologists.
Henri M. Duvernoy has had a distinguished career in the field, working as a Professor of Anatomy until 1999, since which time he has been Emeritus Professor at the University of Franche-Comté, Besançon, France. He has been the author of numerous publications over several decades, and has published a number of previous books with Spring...

Editorial Reviews

From the book reviews:"This is a comprehensive atlas and correlated functional anatomy text of CA1-CA3, body, head, and the circuitry along with the vascular supply to this area of the temporal lobe and surrounding structures. . The book will be a good addition to the shelves of neuroscientists, epileptologists, neurosurgeons, neurology professionals, and students for a quick comprehensive look at the complexity of the human hippocampus." (Joseph J. Grenier,, March, 2015)
