About this book

 

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.

Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

"This is a highly specialised tome whose state aim is to give a precise description of human hippocampus anatomy … . there are detailed photographs in black and white covering all aspects of hippocampal structure with detailed labelling and accompanying text. The text is readable and clearly written with extensive referencing. … This book is principally an anatomy book and as such would serve a broad spectrum of scientists … . a useful addition to the library of any specialist interested in the hippocampus." (Colin Watts, Acta Neurochirurgica, Vol. 147, 2005)

"The present third edition of ‘The Human Hippocampus’ provides a detailed description of the anatomy of the human hippocampal formation. … the book provides useful very information for the neurosurgeon who looks for gross anatomical details of the hippocampus and its adjacent structures. … it is a well-illustrated documentation of the gross anatomy of the human hippocampus useful for neurosurgeons and neurologists." (Michael Frotscher, Annals of Anatomy, Vol. 187, 2005)

"The Human Hippocampus is an excellent textbook indispensable to read for those who are interested in this structure. … The text is short, in perfect correlation with the figures. The quality of figures is excellent in each chapter permitting the reader to easily understand the constitution of this difficult topic. The quality of presentation and the indexation is very accessible with good readability. This book is an extremely valuable update for the anatomists, researchers and neurosurgeons … ." (F. Proust, Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy, Vol. 27 (6), 2005)
