This page covers biological details of component Medial Posterior Ventral 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) -> Corticomedial Nuclear Complex (FAM.FT.AM.CTM) -> Centromedial Nuclei (FAM.FT.AM.CM) -> Medial Amygdala (FAM.FT.AM.M) -> Medial Posterior Ventral Amygdaloid Nucleus (FAM.FT.AM.MPV) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
  • Brain area: Forebrain - Affective Motivations Area
  • Role: processor.affective.flight
  • Function: defensive behavior
  • Notes to function: MePV -> LAC.FD.HT.VM (reproductive+defensive), LAC.FD.HT.AH (defensive)
