THE LIMBIC BRAIN (2-day neuroanatomy course) – November 2013

THE LIMBIC BRAIN (2-day neuroanatomy course) – November 2013

Neuroanatomy for psychiatry, neurology and neuroscience


·         Focuses on the limbic lobe, hippocampus, amygdala, prefrontal cortex and 'limbic' loops of the basal ganglia

·         Includes the basal forebrain / substantia innominata and diffuse neurochemical systems

·         Emphasises core limbic brain structures of central importance in clinical neurology, psychiatry and the imaging neurosciences

·         Suitable for psychiatrists, neurologists, neuroscientists and psychologists with an interest in the anatomy of memory, emotion and behaviour

·         Expanded programme based on our popular course ‘Neuroanatomy for Psychiatry’ (mean feedback score, February 2011: 4.9/5.0)

Course Details

When:  Mon 4th –Tue 5th November 2013

Course Director

Dr Paul Johns, BSc BM MSc FRCPath
(Consultant neuropathologist / senior lecturer in neuroanatomy) 

More information

This special two-day programme provides a detailed and focused review of functional neuroanatomy, emphasising key structures and systems of relevance to behavioural neurology, psychiatry and the imaging neurosciences.

The course provides a clear, logical account of limbic brain areas including the limbic lobe, cingulate region, hippocampal formation, prefrontal cortex, orbitofrontal region, amygdala, septal area, reticular formation and diffuse neurochemical systems.

The basal forebrain, ‘substantia innominata’ and diffuse neurochemical systems are also discussed, together with the basal ganglia/ventral striatum – and the parallel cognitive, motor and affective loops that form the interface between thought, emotion and action.
