Flashcards in Limbic System and the Physiology of Emotion Deck (11):
The population of cholinergic cells at the ventral surface of the striatum are ______________.
Broca's diagonal band
Which part of the amygdala is the input section?
The output nucleus of the amygdala is the ______________.
True or false: channelrhodopsin allows the entry of sodium channels.
True, but it also allows the exit of potassium channels.
How do researchers make selective channelrhodopsin?
By transfecting it into viruses that bind to certain surface proteins; in doing so, they can make only cholinergic cells (for instance) selectively express channelrhodopsin.
The basal forebrain arch is the ______________ center of the amygdala.
The ____________ generates fear response.
Lesions to the ______________ lead to impairment in ability to estimate the risks or rewards associated with certain behaviors.
The medial forebrain bundle is the _______________ pathway.
Severing the frontal lobe's connections to the rest of the brain leads to ________________.
impaired ability to estimate risks and rewards and to then calibrate behaviors to coordinate with those risks and rewards (including even the ability to have a "gut feeling" about likelihood of risks and rewards)
