by Pierre Gloor, MD, 865 pp, New York, NY, Oxford University Press Inc, 1997.

Arch Neurol. 1998;55(4):574-575. doi:

The Temporal Lobe and Limbic System is a scholarly synthesis, reflecting the intensity of Pierre Gloor's career and knowledge. This 6-chapter volume is grounded in anatomy, but extends from comparative embryogenesis and convolutional patterns to chemical mapping, from neuronal networks to neuropsychology, and from clinical epilepsy and electroencephalography to neuropsychiatry. Gloor's strengths and comfort in anatomy, physiology, and clinical neurology are evident as one reads through the text.
