These last three cortical areas comprise different portions of the temporal lobe. Reviewed by john morrison, patrick hof, and edward lein. The amygdalae interpret external stimuli like sights and sounds as potentially dangerous and send that information to the hippocampus.
The efferent fibers of the hippocampal formation, sending signals from the hippocampus to other parts of the brain, come from the pyramidal cells of the hippocampus and subicular cortex.
This interactive brain model is powered by the wellcome trust and developed by matt wimsatt and jack simpson; During emotional reactions, these two brain regions interact to translate the emotion into particular outcomes. Both sides of the brain are symmetrical, and the hippocampus is located in both hemispheres (1). Namely, this part of our brain receives input and sends output through the entorhinal cortex.
