The limbic lobe is a portion of the brain associated with functions such as olfaction and emotion.

It is related to the term limbic system, but unlike that term, "limbic lobe" is a part of the Terminologia Anatomica, and there is less disagreement over what is included in the "limbic lobe" than there is over what is included in the "limbic system".
