The Limbic Brain (2-day neuroanatomy course)


Department of Anatomy, UCL |
United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

This special two-day programme provides a detailed and focused review of functional neuroanatomy, emphasising key structures and systems of relevance to behavioural neurology, psychiatry and the imaging neurosciences. The course provides a clear, logical account of limbic brain areas including the limbic lobe, cingulate region, hippocampal formation, prefrontal cortex, orbitofrontal region, amygdala, septal area, reticular formation and diffuse neurochemical systems.

The basal forebrain, ‘substantia innominata’ and diffuse neurochemical systems are also discussed, together with the basal ganglia/ventral striatum – and the parallel cognitive, motor and affective loops that form the interface between thought, emotion and action.
