Abstract:

The distribution and properties of the mass responses generated in the basal telencephalon and diencephalon after electrical stimulation of the basolateral and medial amygdala were analyzed in cats anesthetized with chloralose. Two groups of fibres were found in the stria terminalis with a conduction velocity of 2.7-3.4 and 0.7-1 msec. respectively. Twenty five neuronal units were analyzed in the septum, anterior and dorsolateral hypothalamus and nucleus ventromedialis, the main emphasis being made on their firing patterns and temporal capabilities.
