About the Author

Henri M. Duvernoy has had a distinguished career in the field, working as a Professor of Anatomy until 1999, since which time he has been Emeritus Professor at the University of Franche-Comte, Besancon, France. He has been the author of numerous publications over several decades, and has published a number of previous books with Springer, including The Superficial Veins of the Human Brain (1975), The Human Brain Stem and Cerebellum (1995), The Human Hippocampus Functional Anatomy: Vascularization and Serial Sections with MRI, 3rd edn (2005) and Duvernoy's Atlas of the Human Brain Stem and Cerebellum (2009; co-authored with T.P. Naidich and others). Francoise Cattin completed her medical thesis in 1980 and since 1986 has worked at CHU Besancon, France. In 1996-7 she completed a Visiting Professorship at Montreal Neurological Hospital, McGill University, Canada. Her memberships include the Societe Francaise de Neuroradiologie, the Societe Francaise de Radiologie, and the Societe europeenne de Neuroradiologie. Dr. Cattin is the author of a number of articles in peer-reviewed journals and has co-authored or co-edited several previous books, including Computed Tomography of the Pituitary Gland (Springer, 1986) and three editions of Echo-Doppler des arteres carotides et vertebrales: aspects pratiques (Masson). Pierre-Yves Risold completed his PhD thesis at the Histology Laboratory, Faculte de Medecine et de Pharmacie, Universite de Franche-Comte, Besancon in 1991. He subsequently performed postdoctoral studies at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, in the course of which he analyzed the anatomical relationships of the hippocampus with the septum and hypothalamus. As CR1 INSERM he returned to the Histology Laboratory (EA 3922) in Besancon in 1997. Dr. Risold is a member of the Societe de Neuroendocrinologie and Societe des Neurosciences. He has published more than 50 articles in peer-reviewed journals as well as several book chapters.


From the book reviews:"This is a comprehensive atlas and correlated functional anatomy text of CA1-CA3, body, head, and the circuitry along with the vascular supply to this area of the temporal lobe and surrounding structures. ... The book will be a good addition to the shelves of neuroscientists, epileptologists, neurosurgeons, neurology professionals, and students for a quick comprehensive look at the complexity of the human hippocampus." (Joseph J. Grenier,, March, 2015)
