The e-book offers an realizing of mind anatomy, with an emphasis at the new anatomical framework which has emerged over the past zone century. The target is to aid the reader enhance an realizing of the gross anatomical association of the human forebrain.

These same features, however, so much resemble those observed in the centromedial nucleus of the amygdala that the bed nucleus seems best characterized as an extension of that structure—hence the name of the entire complex: extended amygdala. While the concept of the extended amygdala has yet to receive universal acceptance (Swanson, 2000; see also Basic Science Box 4), it has been amply confirmed in other laboratories (see next chapter), and its heuristic value is well established (McGinty, 1999; Koob and Le Moal, 2006).

But the basal nucleus of Meynert, sometimes referred to as the nucleus of the substantia innominata, is only one of several neuronal components in this area, and efforts to elucidate more fully the anatomical organization of the substantia innominata, let alone its functional organization, had until recently met with considerable difficulties. Therefore, the substantia innominata, which also includes the basal, subpallidal region (between the hypothalamus and the amygdaloid body in Fig. , 1997).

Fortunately, the neuroscientist in the pursuit of such information now has a large number of sophisticated methods available to produce highly specific labeling of neuroanatomical structure in sections through the brain that can be viewed at light and electron microscopic levels of resolution. Although individual axons can be traced by the famous Golgi method (Golgi, 1873) and with the aid of intracellular injection techniques, the tracing of long axonal projections is usually performed much more efficiently with other techniques.
