It has been referred to by Durant as “more a metaphor than a theory” (in Harrington, 1991), and it has also been said to be “by far the best concept we have for linking neuroscience with the social sciences” (Cory, 2002). 1 THE TRIUNE BRAIN CONCEPT AND THE CONTROVERSY SURROUNDING IT MacLean suggested that a paleomammalian brain (represented by the limbic system, which according to MacLean is important in emotional behavior related to feeding, reproduction, and parental functions) was added in early mammals to the already existing reptilian brain (the basal ganglia, important for daily routines and ritual displays related to aggression, territoriality, and 15 16 ANATOMY OF NEUROPSYCHIATRY courtship).

4). But the basal nucleus of Meynert, sometimes referred to as the nucleus of the substantia innominata, is only one of several neuronal components in this area, and efforts to elucidate more fully the anatomical organization of the substantia innominata, let alone its functional organization, had until recently met with considerable difficulties. Therefore, the substantia innominata, which also includes the basal, subpallidal region (between the hypothalamus and the amygdaloid body in Fig. , 1997).

As reflected in many parts of this book, it is difficult to overestimate the importance of chemical neuroanatomy in the field of neuropsychiatry, especially since the methods used are often applicable not only to experimental animal brains but also to postmortem human brains. 18 ANATOMY OF NEUROPSYCHIATRY In the 1970s, anterograde and retrograde labeling techniques replaced the silver staining as the methods of choice in experimental tract-tracing. These methods exploit the biological process of axonal transport following injection of a tracer in the area either of origin or termination of a pathway.
