2-Minute Neuroscience: Limbic System


In my 2-Minute Neuroscience videos I simplistically explain neuroscience topics in 2 minutes or less. In this video, I cover the limbic system. I discuss the limbic system’s role in emotion and I briefly describe some of the structures that are often included in the limbic system: the amygdala, hippocampus, parahippocampal gyrus, cingulate cortex, septal nuclei, mammillary bodies, fornix, and hypothalamus.
