More than two decades have elapsed since Gastaut published his extensive review of the structure and physiology of the hippocampus. This work appeard during an epoch when limbic function was under intensive investigation, particularly by experimental studies on stimulation in the intact animal. Since that time, knowledge of limbic physiology has showed impressive advances due to the application of computerized microelectrode techniques in animals and humans and to the histochemical demonstration of neuroactive principles in tissue slices and neuronal cell cultures.
