Papez circuit: What is it?

Papez circuit 

Papez circuit is a route in which the limbic system communicates between 

the hippocampus, thalamus, hypothalamus, and cortex. 

Limbic system is not a true lobe of the brain but rather a functional 

collection of structures that regulate higher activities such as memory and 

emotion. It commonly includes parahippocampal gyrus, hippocampus, 

congulate gyrus, and uncus. 

Bilateral lesions of any structures of Papez circuit have been reported to 

cause amnesia.
