Study Notes

Hippocampal Formation

  • The main function of the hippocampal formation is memory and spatial navigation.
  • The hippocampus terminates beneath the alveus, which functions as a layer of white matter that covers the hippocampus.
  • The dentate gyrus is located within the hippocampal formation.

Ventricles and Boundaries

  • The fornix forms the medial boundary of the lateral ventricles.

Lesions and Consequences

  • A lesion in the hippocampus results in impaired memory formation and spatial navigation.
  • A lesion in the amygdala affects emotional learning.

Emotional Learning and Response

  • The amygdala plays a crucial role in emotional learning.
  • The hypothalamus is involved in the development of sensations of emotion and visceral responses.
  • The anterior cingulate cortex is associated with emotional regulation and executive functions.

Connections and Pathways

  • The fornix connects the hippocampus to the mammillary bodies.
  • The cingulum bundle is a pathway involved in the connection between the hippocampus and other brain regions.

Limbic System

  • The main function of the limbic system is to influence the endocrine system and autonomic nervous system.
  • The limbic system is involved in behavioral and emotional responses, especially those necessary for survival.
  • The limbic system is NOT directly involved in the connection between the cerebellum and the basal ganglia.
  • The term 'limbus' refers to a border or ring, and in the context of the limbic system, it refers to the border between the cerebrum and the brainstem.
  • The hypothalamus is the main structure involved in the regulation of the limbic system.
  • The structure responsible for memory and spatial navigation is the hippocampus.
  • The cerebellum is NOT part of the limbic system.
