Caption: Brain's limbic system. Artwork of the brain's limbic system seen inside a woman's head. This system is a complex network of nerve pathways involved with the expression of instinct and mood. The system is colour-coded: the reticular formation is light purple, the thalamus is pink and the hypothalamus is orange. The light green structures are: the mamillary body on top of the hypothalamus; the amygdala is immediately below the hypothalamus; the hippocampus is beneath the amygdala; the large caudate nucleus is at the top of the limbic system. The limbic system governs self-preservation, mood expression, reproduction and memory formation.
