    Eur J Neurosci 16:1223-6. 2002
    ..These findings indicate that the degree of activation of the noradrenergic system within the amygdala in response to a novel, emotionally arousing experience predicts the extent of long-term memory for that experience...
  2. ncbi request reprint Role of the basolateral amygdala in memory consolidation

    Ann N Y Acad Sci 985:273-93. 2003
    ..The findings suggest further that this memory-modulatory system may be involved in the formation of traumatic memories and posttraumatic stress disorder in human subjects...

    Christa K McIntyre
    Department of Neurobiology and Behavior, University of California, Irvine, USA
    Behav Neurosci 117:320-6. 2003
    ..Amygdala ACh release was positively correlated with performance on the hippocampus-dependent task. These findings suggest that activation of the amygdala promotes processing in other neural systems important for learning and memory...

    Christa K McIntyre
    Department of Neurobiology and Behavior, University of California, Irvine, CA 92697, USA
    Neurobiol Learn Mem 79:177-83. 2003
    ..These findings suggest that differences in release of acetylcholine across brain areas may provide a neurobiological marker of individual differences in selection of the strategies rats use to solve a learning task...
