Neural Associations of the Amygdaloid Complex in the Monkey

Part of the Contemporary Neuroscientists book series (CN)


This paper is the result of a series of experiments performed in an attempt to determine the wider neural organizations of which the amygdaloid complex forms a part. As a first step toward this aim a study was made of the fibre degenerations resulting from lesions in the amygdaloid complex in the monkey (Nauta and Valenstein, 1958; Nauta, 1961). Some of the results of that study are summarized in diagrammatic form in fig. 14.
