About the Author

Marco Catani is a Clinical Senior Lecturer in the Department of Forensic and Neurodevelopmental Science at The Institute of Psychiatry and Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist at the Maudsley Hospital. He is the Head of the Natbrainlab at King's College London, UK. Over the last ten years he has pioneered the use of novel imaging methods to re-explore the neuroanatomy of connections and describe new pathways of the human brain. Michel Thiebaut de Schotten is a research fellow in the Department of Forensic and Neurodevelopmental Science at the Institute of Psychiatry. He is member of the Natbrainlab at King's College London, UK. In the last five years he has combined several modality of neuroimaging to understand the role of the white matter networks in the human living brain.


'The Atlas of Human Brain Connections is intended to help neuroscientists and clinicians in the process of correlating structure with function, and lesions with symptoms." With those spare words, the authors introduce beginners and experts alike to their wondrous, 500-page treasure-trove of fiber tracts, beautifully illustrated in all three planes of serial sections (axial, coronal, and sagittal) as well as in two-dimensional reconstructions. Faced with the reality of its myriad highways of communication, we are led to think anew about how the human brain performs its miracles. To that end, this uncommon view of brain structure will soon become indispensable.' * Dr Mortimer Mishkin, Chief of the Section on Cognitive Neuroscience in the Laboratory of Neuropsychology, NIMH *
Cognitive neuroscience is at a crossroads. On one hand, it sits on a rich data set of cortical connectivity in the monkey, an animal that lacks the complicated behaviors of interest. On the other hand, it is amassing an even richer set of facts on the functional map of the human brain, but with relatively little information on underlying structural connectivity. This lavishly illustrated volume by Catani and Thiebaut de Schotten represents a major step in closing this gap. The authors have combined the science of diffusion tensor imaging with the art of tractography in a comprehensive work slated to become a standard reference for exploring the structural foundations of human brain function. * Marsel Mesulam, MD, Director, Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer's Disease Center *
