In this book, Dr. Lautin has achieved the sweet smell of success in making the arcane clear. This is a must read, not for the summer beach, but for a comfortable chair in front of a window to your mind.

This book is a must for anyone interested in learning about the brain. It is packed with references to the literature of original investigators and not only explains the function of the limbic brain, but, in essence, details the history of ideas about the limbic brain, from Broca's anatomic description to Papez's Circuit. Although somewhat idiosyncratic, with some pages containing more footnote than text, this book is a terrific treatment of the subject. I wouldn't be surprised if this becomes a classic in the literature. Thank you Dr. Lautin!

Brain Structure & Function. Detecting Deception Using Statement Analysis. CHAPTER SUMMARIES The book, which is divided into five chapters, overviews basic concepts and principles in our understanding of limbic brain anatomy dating to Broca’s proposal in 1878. In the first four chapters, the limbic brain is exam- ined as a somewhat independent hemispheric domain. Broca’s great limbic lobe, Papez’s circuit, MacLean’s limbic system, and Nauta’s limbic midbrain form the conceptual core of chapters 1–4, respectively.

Additional dissatisfaction surrounding the limbic brain concept stems from the feeling that it is historically inert (an antiquated 19th century construct). In our current age of neural networks, and parallel distributed process it is of little value, merely an historical curio. So why then this int- duction to limbic brain anatomy? We offer several interrelated rationales behind our labors. Nearly, 50 years ago, Karl Pribram in a discussion section accompanying MacLean’s proposal of a limbic system, criticized the visceral or limbic brain concept as theoretically too vague and cumbersome.

2), Andrew Lautin, MD Clinical . Dr. Lautin has written this 134 page book with a wonderful description of maybe the most important part of the brain as related to our emotions and behavioural patterns: the limbic brain.

This text is at once a textbook on neuroanatomy, specifically the features of the limbic brain, and a history of medicine. It weaves together the historical and scientific strands of research on the limbic brain, which houses consciousness and emotion in mammals, especially man, and in which there is now growing interest among researchers, specifically those involved in the behavioural neurosciences.
