Abstract

The conditioning stimulation of the substantia nigra both in chronic and acute cats determined a more effective inhibition than caudate nucleus activation on the evoked paroxysmal activity in the amygdala. Lesions of the substantia nigra by means of kainic acid, produced the disappearance of the inhibition induced by caudate nucleus. An examination of the obtained data and of the literature on this topic, allowed us to identify a possible nigro-amygdaloid direct pathway.
