The limbic system is a ring of structures on the inner border of the cerebrum. Sometimes called the “emotional brain” because it plays a primary role in a range of emotions (e.g., pain, pleasure, docility, affection, anger), it also is involved in smelling, memory, and aspects of behavior. (Tortora, Gerard J. and Sandra Reynolds Grabowski. Principles of Anatomy and Physiology, 10th Edition. p 471-472, G-23. NY: John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2003.)
