We used event-related fMRI to measure neural activity in volunteer subjects during acquisition of an implicit association between a visual conditioned stimulus (CS+) (angry face) and an auditory unconditioned stimulus (UCS) (aversive, loud noise). Three distinct functional regions were identified within left amygdala: a UCS (noise)-related lateral region, a CS+-related ventral region, and a dorsal region where CS+-related responses changed progressively across the learning session.
