The limbic system, a complex network of brain structures, plays a crucial role in processing emotions, memories, and behavior.

This system includes the amygdala, hippocampus, and hypothalamus, among other structures.

When we encounter stimuli that evoke a physical emotional response, the limbic system is activated, leading to the release of neurotransmitters and hormones that affect our thoughts, decisions, and actions.

This emotional processing can often override or bypass the more rational, logical functions of the neocortex, leading to the manifestation of cognitive biases.
