The limbic loop

Our main contribution this year to advancing our view of the limbic loop is the defense of the PhD of B. T. Nallapu [1] related to the modeling of the orbital and medial loops the two main constituents of the limbic loop, as described in [33]. In short, this work proposes, instead of a global view of the orbital loop as generally proposed, a view with two loops, one corresponding to the lateral part of the orbitofrontal cortex related to respondent conditioning and one to the medial part related to operant conditioning and closely linked to the medial loop. The work shows that such a model replicates a variety of observations in neuroscience and can be used for the autonomous behavior of an agent in the Minecraft video game.
