Caption: Limbic system. Artwork of the two basal ganglia (dark pink) of the brain's limbic system seen in a man's head. The main part of each basal ganglia, the corpus striatum, is seen. These consist of a caudate nucleus (convex lens-shaped) and a comma- like lentiform nucleus. The cerebrum (light pink), the largest part of the brain, is involved in memory, conscious thought and voluntary movement. The limbic system governs activities like fear, rage, pleasure and reproduction. The basal ganglia play a role in muscle contractions. They may also be linked to the mental disorder schizophrenia, as many anti-schizophrenia drugs work at dopamine receptors in the basal ganglia.
