The precuneus: a review of its functional anatomy and behavioural correlates.
A useful conceptual framework is provided for matching the functional imaging findings with the specific role(s) played by this structure in the higher-order cognitive functions in which it has been implicated, and activation patterns appear to converge with anatomical and connectivity data in providing preliminary evidence for a functional subdivision within the precuneus.

The Human Amygdala
Building on pioneering animal studies, and making use of new, noninvasive techniques for studying the human brain, research on the human amygdala has blossomed in recent years. This comprehensive…

Activity in ventromedial prefrontal cortex covaries with sympathetic skin conductance level: a physiological account of a “default mode” of brain function
A functional neuroanatomy of tics in Tourette syndrome.
Aberrant activity in the interrelated sensorimotor, language, executive, and paralimbic circuits identified in this study may account for the initiation and execution of diverse motor and vocal behaviors that characterize tics in TS, as well as for the urges that often accompany them.

A significant association was found with previous psychiatric history, history of febrile convulsions, and history of status epilepticus, whereas lamotrigine co-therapy had a protective effect.
A systematic review of the behavioral effects of levetiracetam in adults with epilepsy, cognitive disorders, or an anxiety disorder during clinical trials
Anatomy of Neuropsychiatry: The New Anatomy of the Basal Forebrain and Its Implications for Neuropsychiatric Illness
This book emerged in part from a series of workshops on the functional anatomy of the human brain organized by Lennart Heimer, which resulted in a way of conceptualizing the interrelationships of the cortical mantle, deep telencephalic nuclei, and descending and ascending systems of the brainstem that differs in signifi cant respects from what they likely were taught during their professional training.
