  • The electroencephalogram (EEG) of the basolateral nucleus of the amygdala (BLA) was recorded during presentation of acoustic stimuli (70-110 dB SPL) in rats. EEG recordings were performed by chronically implanted bipolar electrodes in the BLA. The auditory evoked response consisted of a broad negative wave followed by a slow positive wave. A characteristic pattern of 1 to 3 negative peaks with a latency of about 12 ms and an increased amplitude of the slow positive wave at about 30 ms was… CONTINUE READING
