Basolateral Amygdala–Nucleus Accumbens Interactions in Mediating Glucocorticoid Enhancement of Memory Consolidation
TLDR
The present experiments indicate that the BLA–NAc pathway plays an essential role in mediating glucocorticoid effects on memory consolidation and suggest that theBLA interacts with hippocampal effects onMemory consolidation via this pathway.
Norepinephrine release in the amygdala after systemic injection of epinephrine or escapable footshock: contribution of the nucleus of the solitary tract.
TLDR
Findings indicate that systemic injection of EPI increases release of NE in the amygdala and suggest that the effects are mediated in part by activation of brainstem neurons in the NTS that project to the amygdala.
Involvement of the amygdala in memory storage: interaction with other brain systems.
TLDR
Findings provide strong evidence supporting the hypothesis that the amygdala is involved in modulating long-term memory storage, as well as supporting the central hypothesis guiding the research reviewed in this paper.
Involvement of basolateral amygdala alpha2-adrenoceptors in modulating consolidation of inhibitory avoidance memory.
TLDR
Results provide additional evidence that consolidation of inhibitory avoidance memory depends critically on prolonged activation of the noradrenergic system in the BLA and indicate that this modulatory influence is mediated, in part, by pre-synaptic alpha(2)-adrenoceptors.
Basolateral amygdala noradrenergic influence enables enhancement of memory consolidation induced by hippocampal glucocorticoid receptor activation.
TLDR
It is found that bilateral excitotoxic lesions of the basolateral nucleus of the amygdala (BLA) block the enhancing effects of posttraining systemic or intrahippocampal glucocorticoid administration on memory for inhibitory avoidance training, which is consistent with the hypothesis that the BLA regulates the strength of memory consolidation in other brain structures.
Basolateral amygdala lesions block glucocorticoid-induced modulation of memory for spatial learning.
TLDR
In adrenally intact rats, intracerebroventricular posttraining injections of a specific glucocorticoid receptor (GR or Type-II) antagonist impaired retention, and BLA lesions blocked the effect of the GR antagonist.

The noradrenergic system of the amygdala and aversive information processing.
TLDR
The results suggest that the noradrenergic system of the amygdala is involved in the long-term processing of the emotional attributes of aversive information.
Stria terminalis lesions attenuate the effects of posttraining naloxone and beta-endorphin on retention.
TLDR
In both tasks, ST lesions attenuated the memory-enhancing effects of naloxone as well as thememory-impairing effects of beta-endorphin, consistent with other recent evidence suggesting that the amygdala may be involved in posttraining memory modulation.
Stria terminalis lesions attenuate the effects of posttraining oxotremorine and atropine on retention
TLDR
It is suggested that activation of pathways within the ST is involved in cholinergic influences on memory, and is consistent with the view that the amygdaloid complex is involvement in integrating neuromodulatory influences in memory storage.
