Caption: Limbic system. Illustration of the limbic system (green) in the human brain. Coloured nuclei show the sites of action of benzodiazepine drugs. The limbic system is a complex network of nerve pathways involved in instinct and mood. It governs the expression of fear, rage, pleasure and sex, and is involved in the formation of memory. Areas of the limbic system are named as follows: corpus callosum (white, top); caudate nucleus (just below corpus callosum); thalamus (centre, dark green); reticular formation (hanging down); hippocampus (ribbed); amygdala (just above right end of hippocampus). The pink structure on the left is the cerebellum.
