Affective Control of Decision Making

Project description

The participation of the amygdala in decisions

How animals process information and the decisions they make don’t always result in the best outcome. A bad decision could result in death while the right decision will ensure survival. Decision-making is a complex process in which the amygdala, widely considered one of the principle brain structures, plays a central role in guiding choice. The EU-funded ACoDM project will study role of the amygdalostriatal projection (basal amygdala to dorsomedial striatum, DMS), and the synaptic mechanisms underlying the interaction of this input with the well-known corticostriatal pathway (prelimbic cortex, PrL to DMS). The findings will shed new light on the participation of the amygdala.
