Amygdalofugal pathway

Amygdalofugal pathway

The amygdalofugal pathway (Latin for "fleeing from the amygdala") is one of the three principal pathways by which fibers leave the amygdala, 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.

The targets of the amygdalofugal pathway mirror those of the stria terminalis and include the septal nuclei, nucleus accumbens, and hypothalamus.
