Cascade projections from somatosensory cortex to the rat basolateral amygdala via the parietal insular cortex.

The pathways by which somatosensory information could be relayed from the cortex to the amygdaloid complex were investigated by using the anterograde axonal transport of biocytin following cortical microinjections. Injections of biocytin into head and limb areas of secondary somatosensory cortex (S2) produced heavy labeling of fibers and terminals in… CONTINUE READING
