Posterior Cortical Amygdaloid Nucleus

@@Home -> BiologicalLifeResearch -> BrainAreaFAM -> BrainRegionFAM_FT_AM_COP

This page covers biological details of component Posterior Cortical 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) -> Cortical Amygdaloid Nucleus (FAM.FT.AM.CO) -> Posterior Cortical Amygdaloid Nucleus (FAM.FT.AM.COP) (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: olfactory processing - unconditional signaling
