This page covers biological details of component Central Amygdaloid Nucleus, capsular subdivision. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Forebrain Telencephalon -> Extended Amygdala (FAM.FT.EXTAM) -> Amygdala (FAM.FT.AM) -> Corticomedial Nuclear Complex (FAM.FT.AM.CTM) -> Centromedial Nuclei (FAM.FT.AM.CM) -> Central Amygdala (FAM.FT.AM.CEA) -> Central Amygdaloid Nucleus, capsular subdivision (FAM.FT.AM.CEC) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
  • Brain area: Forebrain - Affective Motivations Area
  • Role: processor.affective
  • Function: mediate behavioral responses, link to striatal effect
  • Notes to function: gustatory, somatosensory, visual, auditory, frontal cortex, perirhinal cortex, ET, SUB -> X -> HT-dl/cl, CeM
