Abstract

The limbic system is a phylogenetically old part of the brain comprising the limbic lobe and various subcortical areas which are bilaterally connected with the hypothalamus, with areas of peptidergic neurons producing GnRH (for review see 537). The original idea that this part of the brain serves in particular the sense of smell (rhinencephalon) has been abandoned. Two main functional systems are differentiated, the so-called amygdaloid circle and the septal circle with the hippocampus. Both systems participate in the control of gonadotropic pituitary function.
