Limbic forebrain structures and the hypothalamus are essential in the initiation of food-seeking, escape from predators and other behaviors essential for adaptation and survival. Neural integrative activities subserving these behaviors initiate motor responses but the neural interface between limbic and motor systems has received relatively little attention. This neglect has been in part because of the emphasis on the motor control of the movements and on the contributions of the cerebral… Expand
Limbic-motor integration by neural excitations and inhibitions in the nucleus accumbens.
TLDR
It is suggested that NAc cue-evoked signals, including inhibition of firing, provide a mechanism for linking reward prediction and other motivationally relevant factors, such as spatial proximity, to the probability and vigor of a reward-seeking behavioral response. Expand
The nucleus accumbens: gateway for limbic structures to reach the motor system?
TLDR
This chapter discusses the importance of accumbens (Acb) for limbic structures to reach the motor system and provides a framework for the more specific description of the connectivity of the ventral striatopallidal system. Expand
Influence of Dopamine on Limbic Inputs to the Nucleus Accumbens
TLDR
Results from the behavioral experiments are interpreted, along with those from electrophysiological experiments, to suggest an integrated hypothesis on possible functions of dopamine in the accumbens, especially its role in behavioral response initiation. Expand
The greater limbic system, the emotional motor system and the brain.
TLDR
This chapter discusses human brain, with particular focuses on the cerebral cortex, which is the principal and dominating center in the human brain. Expand
A review of systems and networks of the limbic forebrain/limbic midbrain
TLDR
A systems approach is put forward in order to build a network model of the limbic forebrain/limbic midbrain system, and the interactions of its major components, which is oriented toward considerations of distributed neural systems themselves as functional entities in the brain. Expand
Gating of Limbic Input to the Ventral Striatum
Publisher Summary This chapter explores that the nucleus accumbens (NAc) is a hub for information related to reward, motivation, and decision-making. As a striatal region, it receives cortical inputsExpand
Theories of basal forebrain organization and the "emotional motor system".
Publisher Summary This chapter focuses on the neuroanatomy of the heterogenous structures that comprise the basal forebrain, insofar as this territory, together with its most closely associatedExpand
Convergence of Limbic Input to the Cingulate Motor Cortex in the Rhesus Monkey
TLDR
It is suggested that the cingulate motor cortex forms a strategic cortical entry point for limbic influence on the voluntary motor system. Expand
Complex motor and sensorimotor functions of striatal and accumbens dopamine: involvement in instrumental behavior processes
TLDR
It is proposed that DA in accumbens and striatummodulates the ability of neocortical and limbic areas involved in sensory, associative, and affective processes to influence complex aspects of motor function, and also modulates the execution of complex motor acts organized by the neocortex. Expand
Neurobiology of Effort and the Role of Mesolimbic Dopamine
Abstract Classical definitions of motivation typically involve two main components: direction and activation. Motivated behavior is directed toward or away from particular stimuli (i.e., appetitiveExpand

It has long been known that stimulation of the appropriate part of the cerebral cortex will give rise to rhythmic, serially repeated movements of mastication. As a result of early experimental workExpand
Organization of brainstem behavioral systems
TLDR
Rostral hypothalamic-limbic mechanisms, while perhaps contributing refinement to the integration of behaviors, may best be viewed as phylogenetically newer control mechanisms making the expression of species-characteristic behaviors subordinate to additional class of exteroceptive and interoceptive stimuli.

This review will discuss how principles from theoretical principles arising from studies of the properties of interneurons within the CNS apply to locomotion and will suggest that they may also serve as useful working hypotheses in the study of other motor systems. Expand
