The pathways descending from the amygdala to neural structures in the lower brain stem responsible for production of spasmodic expiratory response like cough (SER), which occurred upon electrical stimulation of the cortical nucleus of amygdala (Aco), were investigated using microinjection and ablation techniques in the cat. 1) Following transection of the bilateral stria terminalis (STT), the threshold for SER production was remarkably elevated. 2) SER was suppressed by administration of… CONTINUE READING
