Contemporary research on the links between brain, mind, and human behavior has revealed the key role of the frontal-subcortical circuits in a wide range of neuropsychiatric syndromes and disorders. This authoritative volume reviews current knowledge on the anatomy of these circuits, their connections to other brain regions, and their influences on motor, cognitive, affective, and behavioral functioning. The volume first explains how the frontal-subcortical circuits provide a unifying organization of activities of the frontal lobes, basal ganglia, thalamus, and connecting white matter tracts. Specific clinical problems are then addressed, including Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, ADHD, schizophrenia, addictive disorders, and more. Chapters identify the neural substrates of specific symptoms, present salient human and animal data, and describe state-of-the-science approaches to pharmacological and neurosurgical intervention. Featured are a wealth of informative illustrations, including 8 pages in full more
