Comprising the septal area and the subcortical nuclei, the septal region is gray matter structures with widespread projection systems and different neurotransmitters. Although their function is poorly understood, lesions of the septal nuclei result in a syndrome of hyper-reactivity, amnesia, and hypersexuality. The pathologic processes affecting the septal region are discussed.
