The Stria Terminalis, The Ventral Amygdaloid Pathways, and Related Amygdaloid Connections
The amygdala is composed of a group of nuclei located just beneath the cortical mantle of the inferior temporal lobe. This region is interconnected with cortical regions, the olfactory system, and portions of the thalamus and hypothalamus.
