The Limbic System—Biochemistry
Lecture no. 22 from the course: Understanding the Brain
Taught by Professor Jeanette Norden | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
This lecture discusses some of the neurotransmitters that are critical in the normal functioning of the limbic system circuits. Damage to this system can cause the delicate balance of excitation and inhibition to be disrupted. Such imbalances are believed to underlie many mental disorders such as depression.
