This group of the authors emphasized: "The damaged Amygdale resulted in a permanent handicap in the domain of choice making".
Distinct subtypes of basolateral amygdale taste neurons reflect palatability and reward.
Recent studies implicate the prelimbic cortex in fear expression as well, by way of its connection to the basal and then to central nucleus of amygdale.
Activation of the amygdale by valence dimension, not by arousal dimension of emotion: A fMRI study.
Eugene, Joormann, Cooney, Atlas, and Gotlib (2010) highlight the importance of assessing activation in the rostral anterior cingulated cortex, whereas Johnstone, van Reekum, Urry, Kalin, and Davidson (2007) found that depressed individuals were characterized by increased dorsolateral prefrontal cortex activation (cognition and negative symptoms) and decreased amygdale activation that appeared to be mediated by the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (affect and negative symptoms).
Si vous me regardez en face, mon amygdale est immediatement activee--la votre aussi--et il y a donc aussitot activation par le regard de tout le cerveau limbique.
The hydrothermal pathways may have been substantially different, even for quite closely spaced cavities It is probable that a variation in the nature of the exchangeable cations in zeolites occurred within a single amygdale or vein Fluid composition may be important in defining the type of zeolite that occurs in a particular amygdale or vein, whereas temperature variations may influence chemical variation within such individual cavities.
22) Oxytocin receptor-expressing neural circuits in the central amygdale connect to the medial prefrontal cortex to suppress neurons that produce the freezing reaction to fear while promoting risk assessment and exploratory response to frightening stimulus.

For instance it is suggested that the neocortex can be taught to control key aspects of emotional functioning, in particular emotions controlled by the amygdale, consequently when working with an anxiety disorder, 'exposure therapy' is used because this is said to initiate interactions between the medial prefrontal cortex and the amygdale (Myers & Davis, 2007).
