The properties of the fibres of the stria terminalis have been analyzed on the basis of threshold, conduction velocity and absolute refractory period in anesthetized cats in which the stria terminalis was widely exposed. Both, fast and slow fibres, relay in the bed nucleus of the stria. Spontaneous unitary activity in the anterior and ventrome - dial hypothalamus had a predominant frequency of 6sec., being both facilitated and inhibited by amygdaloid stimulation. Correlation of neuronal firing patterns, amygdaloid efferent pathways and location of units has been analized. Author
