The "limbic system" is a convenient term used to describe deep structures of the brain known for their role in autonomic and endocrine functions. It plays a central role in the regulation of survival, emotions and arousal, and so has relevance to over-stimulated modern patients who suffer from chronic hypervigilance.
Continuing her exploration of the Shaoyang meridian's relationship to the central nervous system, Kiiko Matsumoto has researched a new treatment approach to regulating the shen and ANS which may be mediated by the relationship of certain scalp points to the limbic system. This approach has relevance for a range of clinical presentations that include chronic pain, sensory disorders, emotional disturbance and internal pathology.
