Neurons from the Central Amygdala Project to the Brainstem, Translating Fear Memory into Action (image) Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Share Print E-Mail Caption A team of CSHL scientists have discovered a new neural circuit in the brain that directly links the site of fear memory with an area of the brainstem that controls behavior. Far-reaching neurons in the central amygdala, the location of fear memory in the brain seen here in red (middle panel), directly contact neurons in the brainstem, here in green (left).
