abstract

  • We provide a brief overview of the structures associated with the limbic system using fixed human material. Although the review is by no means intended to be exhaustive, its purpose is to provide a tutorial on the primary structures that are involved in the experience, expression, and regulation of emotion and their anatomical location so that the reader can use this as a "pedagogical guide" for orientation and understanding of the many papers that appear in this Special Issue.
