As the human hypothalamus has traditionally been considered part of the neuroendocrine system, it has been of little interest to neurologists. This volume creates renewed interest in the subject, highlighting groundbreaking research that links this complex part of the human brain to a variety of neurological and psychological disorders.

Clinicians, researchers, and practitioners from a variety of medical fields will find this to be a comprehensive presentation of new research that applies to a variety of disorders, including their origin, diagnosis, and treatment. From groundbreaking discussions that link the human hypothalamus to attention deficits in the dementias, to its role in disorders such as narcolepsy and certain epilepsies, users will find this volume to be an invaluable resource for research and patient care.

Specific information on topics including depression, eating disorders, aggression, and mental retardation are included, giving those in the field of neurology, psychiatry, endocrinology, and pediatrics a comprehensive understanding on how the human hypothalamus is related to patient disorders in these fields.



* A comprehensive accounting of groundbreaking new research regarding the human hypothalamus
* New insights on the hypothalamus and its role in disorders, including dementias, epilepsies, and associated psychiatric diseases
* A greater understanding of how the human hypothalamus impacts research and treatment protocols in a variety of fields, including neurology, endocrinology, and psychology

Review:

'To many neuropathologists, the human hypothalamus may be nothing more than a few ml of neuroendocrine tissue that is all too often ignored or excluded from standard neuropathological examinations or brain maps. With the advent of the first two volumes of the third series of the "Handbook of Clinical neurology", Dick Swaab changes that perception permanently by compiling and reviewing simply everything there is to know about this structure in a 1,000-page monograph............If one book can change the traditional clinical perception of the hypothalamus as an evolutionary ancient, endocrine structure of little importance, this monograph will.' - Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology 'It is unusally rich in historical detail, and the illustrations are of exeptionally good quality' - Journal of Neuroendocrinology

Review:

This volume is part of the Handbook of Clinical Neurology series, the world’s most comprehensive source of information in neurology. Now in its third generation, the series has an unparalleled reputation for providing the latest foundational research, diagnosis, and treatment protocols essential for both basic neuroscience research and clinical neurology.
