Cingulate Cortex, Volume 166 summarizes research on the cingulate cortex, including its structure and function in health and how it is compromised in disease or trauma. Chapters discuss the cingulate organization by region and area, cover its function in consciousness, attention, social cognition and spatial orientation, review neurological disorders with cingulate involvement, including neurodegenerative disorders, movement disorders, Parkinson’s, ADHD, Cognitive impairment, Palsy, Tourette’s Syndrome, chronic pain, seizures, and more. Final sections discuss the relationship between the cingulate cortex, stress and psychiatric disorders. Coverage here includes PTSD, anxiety, depression, and evidence-based treatment for same.

Key Features

  • Identifies the structure and function of all areas and regions of the cingulate cortex
  • Discusses its role in sensory-motor, cognitive and emotional processing
  • Covers cingulate-mediated neurological and psychiatric disorders
  • Supplies evidence-based treatment for cingulate mediated disorders


Researchers in neuroscience, neurology, psychology and psychiatry; medical neurologists

About the Series Volume Editor

Brent Vogt

Dr. Vogt is the founder and president of Cingulum Neurosciences Institute, a corporation dedicated to exploring the structure, functions and diseases of cingulate cortex. It engages in translation of animal research to human conditions and supports research to uncover cingulate mechanisms of psychiatric diseases and objective measures of impaired cingulate functions –with the goal of developing cingulate-mediated cognitive and drug therapeutics. Dr. Vogt has published seminal articles on the circuitry and role of cingulate cortex in chronic pain, placebo, hypnosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and mild cognitive impairment by translating basic research findings on cingulate structure, connections and receptor binding. He is the author of over 110 research articles relating to the brain circuitry in health and disease.
