As occurs for other amygdaloid nuclei (33), it is possible that transmitter-mediated excitatory, inhibitory, and/or disinhibitory mechanisms in the MePD can promote a flexible, dose- and context-dependent modulation of the central control of sympathetic/parasympathetic output (6).
[5-9] Anatomically, the amygdala consists of several distinct nuclei with different functions, including the lateral, basolateral, basomedial and central amygdaloid nuclei. [9,10] The lateral, basolateral and basomedial nuclei are collectively referred to as the basolateral complex; this complex is the primary sensory interface of the amygdala and thus the probable site within the amygdala for establishing the association between the conditioned and unconditioned stimuli.
[104,107,108] Zimmerman and Maren [109] found that infusion of the NMDA receptor antagonist APV into the basolateral complex or the central amygdaloid nuclei impaired the acquisition of extinction memory.
