The hippocampus is one of a group of remarkable structures embedded within the brain?s medial temporal lobe. Long known to be important for memory, it has been a prime focus of neuroscience research for many years. The Hippocampus Book brings together contributions by leading international scientists knowledgeable about hippocampal anatomy, physiology, and function. This authoritative volume offers the most comprehensive, up-to-date account of what the hippocampus does, how it does it and what happens when things goes wrong. At the same time, it illustrates how research focusing on this single brain structure has revealed principles of wider generality for the whole brain.
