1) Memantine is a NMDA receptor [highlight]antagonist[/highlight].

2) Early treatment of Wernicke with Thiamine can [highlight]reverse[/highlight] the symproms and prevent irreversible damage in form of Korsakoff.

3) Limbic system ....involved in emotion, motivation, pleasure, pain.

...consists of Cingulate gyrus,Hippocampus, Amygdala, Fornix and parts of the Basal Ganglia and Thalamus (Note: Pituitary not included).

4) Basal Ganglia consists of Corpus striatum, Substantia Nigra, Globus Pallidus and Subthalamic nuclei.
