The intercalated (ITC) cell masses are small GABAergic cell clusters interposed between the basolateral (BL) complex and central (CE) nucleus of the amygdala. ITC cells receive excitatory afferents from the BL complex and generate feed-forward inhibition in the CE nucleus. Recently it was shown that ITC cells could gate impulse traffic between the BL complex and CE nucleus in a spatiotemporally differentiated manner. In addition, it was hypothesized that lateromedial inhibitory interactions… CONTINUE READING
