The authors have successfully linked structures and their respective functions and by using such a creative concept have made this difficult subject matter more comprehensive. As such, this book should appeal to those from a broad range of areas and disciplines for those starting out with little to no knowledge of the brain, this book is a fascinating introduction. -- Acta Neuropsychiatrica, Book Bash This book is absolutely magnificent. The authors have tackled a difficult domain with a lateral arabesque strategy... and have pulled it off. I highly recommend it. -- Professor Gordon Parker, School of Psychiatry, University of New South Wales
