Introduction: Limbic system

Description of Limbic system

Limbic system: a system of functionally related neural structures in the brain that are involved in emotional behavior.
Source: WordNet 2.1

Limbic system: group of brain structures associated with olfaction but of greater importance in other activities, such as autonomic functions and aspects of emotion and behavior.
Source: CRISP

Limbic system: A set of forebrain structures common to all mammals that is defined functionally and anatomically. It is implicated in the higher integration of visceral, olfactory, and somatic information as well as homeostatic responses including fundamental survival behaviors (feeding, mating, emotion). For most authors, it includes the AMYGDALA, EPITHALAMUS, GYRUS CINGULI, hippocampal formation (see HIPPOCAMPUS), HYPOTHALAMUS, PARAHIPPOCAMPAL GYRUS, SEPTAL NUCLEI, anterior nuclear group of thalamus, and portions of the basal ganglia. (Parent, Carpenter's Human Neuroanatomy, 9th ed, p744; NeuroNames, https://rprcsgi.rprc.washington.edu/neuronames/index.html (September 2, 1998)).
