Functional Anatomy, Physiology and Clinical Aspects of Basal Ganglia
Evidence of the anatomical and physiological brain research supported by clinical data and theoretical models suggests there are at least five loops related to motor, emotional and cognitive functioning control related to cortico-subcortical loops.
The Brainstem in Emotion: A Review
A conceptual framework for neuroscience, psychology and behavioral science researchers to study brainstem involvement in human emotions is provided and it is shown that the human brainstem contributes to the evaluation of sensory information and triggers fixed-action pattern responses that together constitute the finely differentiated spectrum of possible emotions.
Novel Cerebello-Amygdala Connections Provide Missing Link Between Cerebellum and Limbic System
Using transneuronal tracing techniques and ex vivo optophysiology and super-resolution microscopy, a novel disynaptic pathway is identified that connects the cerebellar output nuclei to the basolateral amygdala and recruits the understudied intralaminar thalamus as a node.
Habenula Circuit Development: Past, Present, and Future
The advantages of the zebrafish model, available techniques, and others that are needed to fully understand habenular circuit development are critically discussed.
Connections of the basal ganglia with the limbic system: implications for neuromodulation therapies of anxiety and affective disorders.
A sound understanding of the currently available knowledge on the circuits connecting the basal ganglia with the limbic system will provide the theoretical platform that will allow precise, selective and beneficial neuromodulatory interventions for refractory psychiatric disorders.
The influence of central thalamus on coding properties of prefrontal cortex
A critical role is indicated for medial thalamus in shaping the activity of cortical neurons in relation to memory dependent responding and goal directed action in rats performing a dynamic DNMTP task.
The limbic brain: Continuing resolution


The prefrontal cortex and the integration of sensory, limbic and autonomic information.
From motivation to action: Functional interface between the limbic system and the motor system
Crossroads of Limbic and Striatal Circuitry: Hypothalamo-Nigral Connections
This work has shown that a substantial second component of the medial forebrain bundle deviates laterally from the main bundle and distributes itself largely to more lateral regions of the midbrain tegmentum (see below).
The organization of networks within the orbital and medial prefrontal cortex of rats, monkeys and humans.
The OMPFC appears to function as a sensory-visceromotor link, especially for eating, which appears to be critical for the guidance of reward-related behavior and for setting of mood.

Analysis of the role of the cerebellum in basic delay conditioning (stimuli overlap) indicates that the memories are formed and stored in the Cerebellar long-term depression is considered as a putative mechanism of memory storage.
A perspective for the interpretation of limbic system function
It is proposed that the normal function of the hippocampal formation may be to act as a neural neuromodulator of the basal ganglia and the hypothalamus.
The medial temporal lobe memory system
The medial temporal lobe memory system is needed to bind together the distributed storage sites in neocortex that represent a whole memory, but the role of this system is only temporary, as time passes after learning, memory stored in neoc cortex gradually becomes independent of medialporal lobe structures.
