Bed Nucleus of Stria Terminalis

@@Home -> BiologicalLifeResearch -> BrainAreaFAM -> BrainRegionFAM_FT_BNST

This page covers biological details of component Bed Nucleus of Stria Terminalis. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Forebrain Telencephalon -> Extended Amygdala (FAM.FT.EXTAM) -> Central Extended Amygdala (FAM.FT.CEAM) -> Bed Nucleus of Stria Terminalis (FAM.FT.BNST) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
  • Quality: L0
  • Brain area: Forebrain - Affective Motivations Area (FAM)
  • Area circuit: Express Flight Emotions (FAMXEFL)
  • Role: processor.affective.flight
  • Function: Mediate slow longer-lasting responses that accompany sustained threats
  • Notes to function:
    • Major output from AM to HT, part of extended amygdala
    • medial part continues to medial AM, central part continues to central AM




Component items:

  • Oval Bed Nucleus of Stria Terminalis
  • Lateral Bed Nucleus of Stria Terminalis
