Brain injuries and brain illnesses provide a very important empirical foundation for the construction of neural network models of brain functioning. If one wants to base such models on neuropsychological or neuropsychiatric data, it is of course essential that the clinical syndromes are described properly. A truly astonishing wealth of relevant observations has accumulated during the last decades. However, it can be argued that the basic understanding of these syndromes by the present generation of psychiatrists and neuropsychologists still suffers from the radical break with traditional European psychiatry which occurred when the new American diagnostic and classificatory system for psychiatry (DSM-III, DSM-IV) was launched and accepted as the new basis for psychiatric thinking. Especially when it comes to modelling brain systems of memory and emotion, the neural network research community should benefit from a review of some facts which were lost in that transition. The present paper is based on a comprehensive update of the classical European diagnostic systems that the author participated in some years ago.
