We have shown that stimulation of the neural substrates in the inferior colliculus (IC) causes a significant increase in the extracellular levels of dopamine (DA) in frontal cortex (FC). Also, it has been reported that the basolateral complex of the amygdala (BLA) serves as a filter for unconditioned and conditioned aversive information that ascend to higher structures from the brainstem. Linking these two kinds of information, this work examines whether inactivation of BLA interferes with the… CONTINUE READING
