Flashcards in Limbic System and the Physiology of Emotion Deck (11):
1

The population of cholinergic cells at the ventral surface of the striatum are ______________.

Broca's diagonal band

2

Which part of the amygdala is the input section?

Basolateral

3

The output nucleus of the amygdala is the ______________.

centromedial amygdala

4

True or false: channelrhodopsin allows the entry of sodium channels.

True, but it also allows the exit of potassium channels.

5

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.

6

The basal forebrain arch is the ______________ center of the amygdala.

novelty reward

7

The ____________ generates fear response.

orbitofrontal cortex

8

Lesions to the ______________ lead to impairment in ability to estimate the risks or rewards associated with certain behaviors.

orbitomedial cotex

9

The medial forebrain bundle is the _______________ pathway.

dopaminergic mesolimbic

10

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)

11

The insular cortex is ____________ and ____________ to the amygdala.

lateral; anterior
