Stimulation of basal telencephalic structures has been shown to produce a wide variety of autonomic and somatomotor responses, as well as more complex behavioral activities in animals and man. In these studies particular attention has been focused on the amygdaloid complex which has been shown to be a major component in the operation of rhinencephalic and limbic-midbrain systems. Despite the large volume of neurophysiological and behavior data on the functional organization of the amygdaloid complex, little has been known concerning the anatomic relations of different nuclear groups in the complex and other cortical and subcortical structures. This monograph represents the most detailed analysis of this problem currently available.
The author not only demonstrates his mastery of the Golgi method as applied to the study of the intrinsic organization of piriform lobe structures, but also reveals his skillful use of the Nauta-Gygax techniques in combination with the Golgi studies. The result
