Useless or Helpful? The "Limbic System" Concept
- EducationReviews in the neurosciences
The diversity of definitions and the weak empirical foundation require careful consideration as to what extent certain aspects of the "limbic system" concept can be useful heuristic tools in scientific reasoning.

Anatomy of Neuropsychiatry: The New Anatomy of the Basal Forebrain and Its Implications for Neuropsychiatric Illness
- Psychology, Medicine
This book emerged in part from a series of workshops on the functional anatomy of the human brain organized by Lennart Heimer, which resulted in a way of conceptualizing the interrelationships of the cortical mantle, deep telencephalic nuclei, and descending and ascending systems of the brainstem that differs in signifi cant respects from what they likely were taught during their professional training.

Hippocampal–diencephalic–cingulate networks for memory and emotion: An anatomical guide
- Biology, PsychologyBrain and neuroscience advances
Current knowledge from tract tracing studies is brought together to update and reconsider those limbic connections initially highlighted by Papez for their presumed role in emotion, to describe the routes taken by the various connections within this network.
Hippocampal Mechanisms Linking Chronic Pain and Depression
- Psychology, Biology
ABSTRACTThe emotional or affective component of pain regulates mood; it occurs primarily in the brain's limbic system; and a negative impact on affect is required in order for stimulus to be…
Does subthalamic nucleus stimulation affect the frontal limbic areas? A single-photon emission computed tomography study using a manual anatomical segmentation method
- Medicine, BiologySurgical and Radiologic Anatomy
Among the basal ganglia nuclei, the subthalamic nucleus (STN) is considered to play a major role in output modulation. The STN represents a relay of the motor cortico-basal ganglia-thalamo-cortical…
Limbic system‐associated membrane protein (LAMP) in primate amygdala and hippocampus
The distribution of the limbic system‐associated membrane protein in the amygdaloid complex and hippocampal formation of cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) was studied with immunohistochemical procedures and revealed that the limbics system‐ associated membrane protein labels structures that form the core of the limbsic system in primates.

Prefrontal cortical projections to the cholinergic neurons in the basal forebrain
- BiologyThe Journal of comparative neurology
Results indicate that prefrontal cortical afferents make direct synaptic contacts upon the cholinergic neurons in the basal forebrain, although further analysis at the electron microscopic level will be needed to provide conclusive evidence.
