1

What is the archicortex, what is its role and what does it connect with?

Hippocampus
Particular role in memory of places and spatial relationships; where you are in the environment
Has connections with medial thalamus, hypothalamus, amygdala and entorhinal cortex

2

What is the paleocortex, what is its role and what is the input and output?

Cingulate and parahippocampal gyri
Representations of pain and emotional sensations
Input from other areas of Cx, principle output through limbic pathway

3

What is the role of the entorhinal cortex?

Recieves information from all areas of the neocortex, and especially from multimodal association areas and is teh major interface between the hippocampus and the neocortex in processing learning and memory

What is the role of the hippocampus

STM - LTM

modulates aggression and rage
