Basic Limbic System Anatomy of the Rat by Leonard Hamilton

By Leonard Hamilton

If this have been a standard textbook of neuroanatomy, many pages will be dedicated to an outline of the ascending and descending pathways of the spinal wire and a number of other chapters to the association of the sensory and motor structures, and, might be, an in depth dialogue of the neurological deficits that stick with a variety of varieties of harm to the anxious method may even be integrated. yet within the first draft of this e-book, the spinal twine was once pointed out just once (in a determine caption of bankruptcy 2) on the way to illustrate the which means of longitudinal and move sections. Later, it was once made up our minds that even this cursory remedy of the spinal twine went past the scope of this article, and a carrot was once substituted because the version. The association of the sensory and motor structures and of the peripheral frightened process have obtained comparable insurance. hence, this isn't a conventional textual content, and as a possible reader, you will be ended in ask, "What's during this e-book for me?" This publication is directed essentially towards these scholars of habit who're both bored or worried by means of the medically orientated texts which are replete with medical indicators, complicated terminology, and prolix descriptions of the human mind, an organ which is rarely really obvious of their laboratories. I may still hasten so as to add, although, that this article can also serve a few objective should you learn and maybe even benefit from the conventional texts.

RS = rhinal sulcus. long history of aliases. These aliases usually reflect the imagination of the anatomist in comparing the shape of the structure with some more common object. For example, the term hippocampus was first introduced by Arantius in 1587 because of a presumed similarity of the structure to a sea horse. As an alternative, Arantius suggested the term Bombyx to denote the similarity to a silkworm. Since that time, according to Tilney (1938), this structure has looked like ram's horns (cornu arietis; cornu Ammonis), like feet (pes hippocampi), like bird claws (calcar avis), and even like a hippopotamus (pes hippopotami).

4-11C). At this level, the optic tracts have turned dorsally and are seen as fiber masses projecting diagonally into the region between the base of the hypothalamus and the overlying cortex. The medial nucleus of the amygdala is situated on the lateral surface of the optic tract. The lateral nucleus is considerably larger and more clearly defined at this level, being separated from the medial nucleus by the spherically shaped central nucleus of the amygdala. The cortical nucleus is still present at the ventromedial border of the pyriform cortex.

Thus, the grouping of these structures into a system simply provides a useful framework upon which research and speculation can be based. The framework can be changed, if required, by the addition of new data or by more meaningful theoretical expositions. It is this expanded and flexible use of the term' 'limbic system" that is used in this text. Before proceeding to a discussion of the relationship of the limbic system to other portions of the brain, it should be pointed out that several of the major structures have a Fig.
