Embryogenesis and Phylogenesis in the Limbic System

  • Jay B. AngevineJr.


It is a privilege to participate in this Symposium that honors the memory and carries forward the ideas of James W. Papez. Before I contribute to the knowledge accumulated in this meeting, I wish to add a footnote to the moving biographical sketch presented by Paul MacLean. So many insights into the limbic system have been presented that three more minutes on Papez, the man, seems entirely in order. So little is known about this man of mystery that it is almost impossible to reveal enough.
