Study of the electrical activity of limbic brain structures after the destruction of the dorsal amygdalofugal pathway


PDF Full Text

Abstract

In order to elucidate the causes of irreversible changes in the activity of the hippocampus after the destruction of the dorsal amygdalofugal pathway, limbic brain structures (amygdala, hypothalamus, reticular formation) were recorded before and after electrical stimulation and destruction of the dorsal amygdalofugal pathway. The data obtained indicate that a necessary condition in the mechanisms of regulation of the excitability of neurons in various nuclei of the hypothalamus, amygdala and reticular formation is a functional integrity of dorsal amygdalofuqal pathway.
