Learning/memory = the storage and retrieval of prior events used to organize future behaviors. Motivation = is the reason(s) for engaging in a particular behavior; include basic needs, desired objects, goals, or ideals. Emotion = a mental and physiological state associated with a wide variety of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. Motivation, emotion, & learning/memory Although these psychological processes are distinct conceptually, they are mediated by overlapping neural circuits. Accordingly, a single system may be underlying different these processes. eural circuit for Neural circuit for emotion From Phillips et al. 2003. Neural circuit for motivation From Kalivas & Volkow 2005. Neural circuit for learning/memory From Moscovitch et al. 2005. Limbic: Lobe , Circuit, & System ingulate gyrus a cortical lobe located at the border of the Cingulate gyrus is a cortical lobe located at the border of the cerebral hemispheres (i.e. limbus described by Broca) and underneath other neocortical structures. In the 1930s, Papez postulated that the unexplained neural bases of emotion was mediated by the uncharacterized cingulate gyrus onsistent with neuropsychological Consistent with neuropsychological evidence e.g. Phineas Gage. Limbic: Lobe, Circuit, & System apez rther expanded upon this idea and established the Papez further expanded upon this idea and established the connections of the cingulate (gyrus) cortex. concluded that the interconnected structures form a circuit hich is known by as the apez ircuit (N B it is a which is known by as the Papez circuit (N.B. it is a subcortical processing loop similar to the basal ganglia of the motor system). concluded that the circuit mediated emotional behavior. Limbic: Lobe, Circuit, & System In the 1950s, MacLean revised Papezs work leading to a more encompassing group of structures in the forebrain cortex (telencephalon) and subcortex (diencephalon) involved in emotion which he termed the limbic system ....
