Amygdalofugal pathway

Amygdalofugal pathway - brief summary

The amygdalofugal pathway (Latin for fleeing from the amygdala and commonly distinguished as the ventral amygdalofugal pathway) is one of the three major efferent pathways of the amygdala, meaning that it is one of the three principal pathways by which fibers leave the amygdala. It leads from the basolateral nucleus and central nucleus of the amygdala. The amygdala is a limbic structure in the medial temporal lobe of the brain. The other main efferent pathways from the amygdala are the stria terminalis and anterior commissure. This pathway is particularly important for associative learning.
