Abstract

(from the jacket) Examines the role of the brain's white matter in the organization of human mental function. This text specifically considers the white matter as a vital contributor to cognition and emotion. Written from a clinical perspective, this book is founded on the study of patients with neurobehavioral syndromes resulting from disorders primarily affecting the brain's white matter. These include white matter dementia, focal neurobehavioral syndromes, and a variety of neuropsychiatric syndromes. Throughout the book, a major emphasis is placed on distributed neural networks, in which connecting white matter tracts complement the operations of gray matter structures in the production of the human behavioral repertoire.
