About this book

The main focus of this book is on providing students, neurosurgery trainees, certified neurosurgeons and colleagues in neighbouring disciplines essential information on the evolution of the central nervous system (CNS) of craniata and homo. Therefore the book is divided in three parts: Part I is describing the evolution of CNS of craniata (starting 800 million of years ago). Part II is explaining in detail the exceptional position of the human encephalon. Part III is discussing maturity and immaturity of all parts of CNS of craniatas and the consequences concerning further development of brain structure and psychological functions. In all parts anatomical fundamentals are presented in the form of didactic and self-explanatory illustrations.

About the authors

Wolfgang Seeger was Professor and Chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at the Albert-Ludwigs-University of Freiburg (Germany) until he retired in 1997. His major interests were the anatomical basis of cranial neurosurgery and the resulting advances in microsurgical techniques. In both fields he trained co-workers and he was giving anatomical training lectures at numerous neurosurgical departments. The training activities have been supported by brain dissections and by the drawings of Wolfgang Seeger, and became working basis for the 24 books he published. After his retirement, he continued to give training lectures and especially to publish books.
