@@Home -> BiologicalLifeResearch -> BrainAreaFAM -> BrainRegionFAM_FT_AM_LAVM

This page covers biological details of component Ventromedial Amygdaloid Nucleus. 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) -> Basolateral Nuclear Complex (FAM.FT.AM.BL) -> Lateral Amygdaloid Nucleus (FAM.FT.AM.LA) -> Ventromedial Amygdaloid Nucleus (FAM.FT.AM.LAVM) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
  • Quality: L0
  • Brain area: Forebrain - Affective Motivations Area (FAM)
  • Area circuit: Fast Unconditional Sensory Data and Association Memory (FAMXUS)
  • Role: processor.affective
  • Function: conditional and unconditional convergence to affect polymodal memory formation
  • Notes to function:
    • LA3
    • projects to ET
