Male Speaker: The Limbic system which is concerned with memory and learning is also believed to be primarily involved an emotional responses. Emotions are the concisus result of the interaction between the activities of the cerebral cortex, the limbic system and the visceral organs of the body which produce specific physical changes. A number of theories have been postulated to explain this relationship between the body and mind, the emotional responses of any individual or however also a product of his knowledge and experience. The anatomy of the limbic system includes the mid lower bodies which contain both incoming and out going nerve fibers and may help to regulate emotions particularly aggression. The fornix a thick bundle of nerve fibers which forms the out going pathway from the hippocampus, the afferent fibers which bring impulses into the dentate gyrus and the area of the afferent fibers which bring impulses into the dentate gyrus and the area of Ammon's horn, The dentate gyrus which lies within the hippocampal sulcus and although its function is not fully understood may rely impulses in the hippocampus. The subiculum a region of the cortex composed of upto 6 different cell layers and a multitude of nerve pathways, Ammon's horn which merges with the subiculum and contains ovoid and pyramidal cells the function of which are thought to be associative with membrane. The afferent fibers which carry information out of Ammon's horn to other regions of the brain the hippocampus which is composed of folded layers of cells and fibers and is associated with emotions, learning and short term memory the parahippocampal gyrus a highly specialized area of nerve cells concerned with memory path ways the Mallory bodies which have incoming and outgoing nerve fibers and access the rely station between the limbic system and the brain and the septum pellucidum which links the medulla and the hypothalamus and is believe to be concerned with pleasure reactions.
