The limbic system refers to a group of connected neural regions that are associated with motivation, learning, and memory. The marginal division (MrD) is a zone located at the caudal border of the neostriatum in mammalian brains that has been shown to be involved in learning and memory. In a previous study, c‐fos expression showed functional connections between the MrD, basal nucleus of Meynert (NBM) and limbic system (Shu et al., 1988a , 1999 ). In the present study, to explore the… 

The Role of Substance P in the Marginal Division of the Neostriatum in Learning and Memory is Mediated Through the Neurokinin 1 Receptor in Rats

TLDR
NK1R mediates the role of SP in the MrD in learning and memory and knocking down NK1R activity in theMrD by using an antisense oligonucleotide against NK1 R mRNA inhibitedLearning and memory in a Y-maze behavioral test.

Comparison of microRNA expression in hippocampus and the marginal division (MrD) of the neostriatum in rats

TLDR
It is reported that the miRNA expression patterns in MrD was distinct from that of Hip, suggesting the role of miRNAs in the learning and memory function of the MrD probably different from hippocampus.

Similar effects of substance P on learning and memory function between hippocampus and striatal marginal division

TLDR
Results indicate that the marginal division of the striatum plays a similar function in learning and memory to the hippocampus, which is a valuable addition to the mechanistic understanding of the learning andMemory functions of the marginal Division of the Striatum.

Altered functional connectivity of the marginal division in Alzheimer's disease.

TLDR
The results suggest that the marginal division functional network is disrupted during Alzheimer's disease, and the functional connectivity between the MrD and the identified regions was significantly correlated with the neuropsychological scores among the MCI and AD subjects.

Effects on Spatial Cognition and Nociceptive Behavior Following Peripheral Nerve Injury in Rats with Lesion of the Striatal Marginal Division Induced by Kainic Acid

TLDR
The results suggest that cognitive impairment of rats altered the pain behaviors, and these intracellular regulators play crucial roles in the process of neuropathic pain.

[The brain mechanism of memory encoding and retrieval: a review on the fMRI studies].

TLDR
The main results of studies on the neural basis of the memory encoding and memory retrieval by functional magnetic resonance image (fMRI) technique were summarized in this review.

[Activated brain areas during simple and complex mental calculation--a functional MRI study].

TLDR
The cortex including the frontal cortex, parietal cortex, and cingulate gyrus were activated during mental calculation, while the subcortical structures played a critical role in the neural networks of the calculation at the same time.

A new subdivision of mammalian neostriatum with functional implications to learning and memory

TLDR
The results suggested that the MrD is a distinct part and a universal structure in the neostriatum of the mammalian brain and might play an important role in the mechanism of learning and memory.

[Functional anatomy of the basal ganglia].

TLDR
Current exploration of the electrophysiology of the basal ganglia and careful analysis of the clinical findings in lesions circumscribed to certain parts of the thalamus, subthalamus and internal globus pallidus in patients with Parkinson's disease, have led to the appearance of paradoxical effects.

The 'marginal division': a new subdivision in the neostriatum of the rat.

TLDR
The marginal division of the striatum is a distinct subdivision of the neostriatum based on its cellular morphology, immunohistochemistry and projection pattern.

TLDR
The marginal division of the striatum is a distinct subdivision of the neostriatum based on its cellular morphology, immunohistochemistry and projection pattern.

TLDR
Fetal rat brains studied in fetal rat brains revealed that LAMP is expressed on neurons and their growing axons early in fetal development, at a time coincident with pathway formation and differentiation of limbic system nuclei.
