Example text

Papez assumed, as has often been the case, that the cerebral cortex had to participate in activities in order for the human or the animal to experience emotional phenomena. He did not, however, believe that the cingulate cortex, or any other part of the neocortex, need be involved in the mechanisms responsible for the behavioral expression of emotion. It is worthwhile to note this distinction which is often found in the literature between mechanisms responsible for the overt expression of internal events and the experience of the internal events.

Hjorth-Simonsen (1971) has demonstrated fibers from the inferior region to the entorhinal cortex which may be considered to be reciprocals of the perforant pathway fibers. He also has shown that cells in the superior region of the hippocampus project to the subiculum, near the boundary with the presubiculum, by means of fibers which travel in the alveus (Hjorth-Simonsen, 1973). In this study, no fibers were found to reach the inferior region of the hippocampus or the dentate gyrus from the superior region.

CA4 is also a small area more or less distinct from CA3 which appears just before the transition from the hippocampus proper to the dentate gyrus. Some investigators believe that the CA2 region is not a distinct area of the hippocampus based on the examination of histological materials from adult animals. However, Angevine (1970) has shown that the cells in area CA2 are formed at different times in the development of the organism than are cells in CA1 and CA3. This would suggest that they should be recognized as a distinctive neural component in the hippocampus.
