Autograph; HARDCOVER First Edition in Dustjacket. SIGNED by the two authors / editors and inscribed to the author of the foreword - Dr. Paul D. MacLean - with thanks for the inspiration they derived from his concept of the Triune Brain. MacLean made significant contributions through his research to the fields of physiology, psychiatry, and brain research. Through his research at Yale Medical School and at the National Institute of Mental Health, MacLean was instrumental in proposing and defining the triune concept of the brain. MacLean's evolutionary triune brain theory proposed that the human brain was in reality three brains in one; the R-complex, the Limbic system and the neocortex. In 1949, MacLean joined the faculty of the Yale Medical School where he studied the brain mechanisms of emotion with Dr. John Fulton. It was during this period that MacLean began to define his theory of the triune brain which would become the foundation of his research throughout his career. In 1971 MacLean became the Chief of the Laboratory of Brain Evolution and Behavior, National Institute of Mental Health, designed for comparative neurobehavioral research on animals in semi-natural conditions. MacLean retired in 1985 with the illustrious title of Senior Research Scientist, Emeritus in the Department of Neurophysiology at NIMH.; Signed by Editors; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
