Sistema límbico

El sistema límbico del cerebro consiste en un grupo de estructuras que dirigen las emociones y el comportamiento. El sistema límbico, en particular el hipocampo y la amígdala, están involucrados en la formación de la memoria a largo plazo y se asocian muy de cerca con las estructuras olfativas (relacionadas con el sentido del olfato).
