Hescham et al (2015) also tested the stimulation of the mammillothalamic tract and compared it with other brain regions within the circuit of Papez such as the entorhinal cortex, the Ca1 sub-region of the hippocampus and the anterior nucleus of thalamus.
The first network, composed of the hippocampal-diencephalic limbic circuit (connected through the fornix and mammillothalamic tract) and the parahippocampal-retrosplenial circuit (ventral cingulum), is dedicated to memory and spatial orientation, respectively; the second, the temporoamygdala-orbitofrontal network (connected through the uncinate fasciculus) is dedicated to the integration of visceral and emotional states with cognition and behavior; the third, the dorsomedial default-mode network consists of a group of medial regions (anterior cingulate-medial PFC and the posterior cingulate-precuneus interconnected through the dorsal cingulum).
