about

This book provides a comprehensive survey of the structure and fiber connections of the human midbrain, specifically of the substantia nigra and ventral tegmental area. The cellular and chemical architecture of these structures is analyzed and the structures' fiber connections are discussed. The role that they play in degenerative diseases of the nervous system, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, is evaluated. Some functional and pathophysiological considerations are included.
