Mounting evidence implicates the central (CE) nucleus of the amygdala in the mediation of classically conditioned fear responses. However, little data are available regarding the intrinsic membrane properties of CE amygdala neurons. Here, we characterized the physiological properties of CE medial (CE(M)) and CE lateral (CE(L)) amygdala neurons using whole cell recordings in brain slices maintained in vitro. Several classes of CE neurons were distinguished on the basis of their physiological… CONTINUE READING
