Limbic system. Computer artwork of a section through a human brain, showing the limbic system (green). The limbic system (or palaeomammalian brain) is a complex set of brain structures that lies on both sides of the thalamus, right under the cerebrum. It is not a separate system, but a collection of structures from the cerebrum, diencephalon, and midbrain, including the hippocampus, amygdalae, anterior thalamic nuclei, septum, limbic cortex and fornix. It supports a variety of functions, including emotion, behaviour, motivation, long-term memory, and olfaction.
