What is the function of the mammillary body? Which information is passed through the cuneate fasciculus or the internal arcuate fibers? Which hormones are produced by the paraventricular hypothalamic nucleus? Which nerves and vessels run through the jugular foramen? Which parts of the body are innervated by the accessory nerve? Which cortical regions are affected by a dysfunction of the central sulcus artery? These are frequently asked questions to which a short and precise answer is seldom found in textbooks or other scientific works. These questions - and more - are now answered in the long-awaited Dictionary of Human Neuroanatomy. It will be a useful companion for everyone looking for precise and functional definitions of terms in the field of neuroanatomy, and is absolutely essential for those studying neuroanatomy, and for quick reference.
