User: 5. What is the function of the limbic system?

Weegy: The limbic system is a set of evolutionarily primitive brain structures located on top of the brainstem and buried under the cortex, which connect the lower and higher brain functions. Limbic system structures are involved in many of our emotions and motivations, particularly those that are related to survival; in the storage and retrieval of memories; in sensory perception and regulation of motor functions. One structure, the hypothalamus, plays a major role in regulating hormones, the pituitary gland, body temperature, the adrenal glands, and many other vital activities.

User: 10. What is the endocrine system responsible for in the body?

User: what is the function ofEndorphins

Weegy: Endorphins are the feel good chemicals released by the brain. They are released by exercise, laughing, or drugs such as acetaminophen. Notice the tingly feeling you get after exercise or laughing, that is from the endorphins. [ Endorphins are not to be confused with neurotransmitters such as dopamine. Dopamine is released every time an animal does something crucial to survival. Eating or having sex, for example, releases dopamine allowing learned responses to occur. A need for dopamine pleasure can lead to overeating and drug addiction. Drugs mimic dopamine and other neurotransmitters, and they bind to receptors longer allowing for a high that last longer than the normal level. ]
