Lab 11 - The Limbic System

Components of the Limbic System-Tracts

The major fiber tracts include the fornix, mammillothalamic tract, and stria terminalis. Other "tracts" which are more difficult to visualize include the mammillotegmental tract, medial forebrain bundle, and ventral amygdalofugal pathway (not shown).

Related structures include those nearby, e.g., the nucleus accumbens septi and the substantia innominata, and those receiving output from the limbic system, e.g., the habenula via the stria medullaris thalami.
