Extensive evidence indicates that drugs and stress hormones act in the basolateral amygdala (BLA) to modulate memory consolidation. The BLA projects to the nucleus basalis magnocellularis (NBM), which sends broad cholinergic projections to the neocortex. NBM-cortex projections have been implicated in learning, memory storage, and plasticity. The current study investigated whether the cholinergic NBM-cortex projections are involved in BLA-mediated modulation of memory consolidation. Bilateral… CONTINUE READING
