Medial Interstitial Anterior Commissural Nucleus

@@Home -> BiologicalLifeResearch -> BrainAreaFAM -> BrainRegionFAM_FT_IPAC_MED

This page covers biological details of component Medial Interstitial Anterior Commissural Nucleus. 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) -> Interstitial Anterior Commissural Nucleus (FAM.FT.IPAC) -> Medial Interstitial Anterior Commissural Nucleus (FAM.FT.IPAC.MED) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
  • Brain area: Forebrain - Affective Motivations Area
  • Role: processor.affective.flight
  • Function: Sharp, acute pain sensation
  • Notes to function: reciprocate its afferent connections, similar to medial part of central amygdaloid nucleus; projections to AM-Ce/BNST components, PB, and SOL originate chiefly from medial division; strong ACh projections from caudal IPACm to AM-BL-posterior and amygdalopiriform transition area
