However, the magnitude of activation in these regions has not been measured; thus the precise relationship between urinary urgency and the limbic cortex remains unclear.
Our findings suggest that, in women with OAB, urinary urgency is associated with abnormal processing of sensory input in the limbic cortex.
Cingulate motor cortex stimulation produce motor effects, and because of its proximity to the limbic cortex
, the region may be involved in movements that have an intense emotional and motivational behavior.
A recent review of functional and structural neuroimaging studies related to intelligence and reason identified areas of the brain that overlap with those in the proposed model of wisdom such as the anterior cingulate and dorsal prefrontal cortex, but this network in the brain, coined the Parieto-Frontal Integration Theory, did not feature areas such as the limbic cortex
, striatum, and medial prefrontal cortex involved with wisdom (Behav.
It has been suggested that bingeing on high-carbohydrate, high-fat foods (ice cream, pizza, cookies, chocolate) has a drug-like effect in the nucleus accumbens, limbic cortex
, and frontal cortex (Fortuna 1998; Wurtman & Wurtman 1989).
Limbic system: A set of brain structures, including the hippocampus, amygdala, anterior thalamic nuclei, septum, limbic cortex
and fornix, that seemingly support a variety of functions, including emotion, behavior, motivation, long term memory, and olfaction.
