The Orbitofrontal Cortex

Edmund T. Rolls


The book will be valuable for those in the fields of neuroscience, neurology, psychology, psychiatry, biology, animal behaviour, economics, and philosophy, from the undergraduate level upwards. The book is unique in providing a coherent multidisciplinary approach to understanding the functions of one of the most interesting regions of the human brain, in both health and in disease, including depression, bipolar disorder, autism, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. There is no competing book published in the last 10 years.

Keywords: orbitofrontal cortex, emotion, motivation, neuroscience, the brain, depression, decision-making, economic value, mental disorders, psychiatry, neurology, psychology
