Description

Handbook of Amygdala Structure and Function, Volume 26, provides an updated overview on the functional neuroanatomy of amygdala nuclei, with an emphasis on interconnections (basolateral, central amygdala, medial amygdala) and their integration into related networks/circuits (prefrontal cortex, bed nucleus, nucleus accumbens). The design of this volume builds upon the foundations of functional neural circuits and the corresponding (cellular) electrophysiology important for the homeostatic control of amygdala function. This volume contains a dedicated section on the anatomical organization of the amygdala nuclei, emphasizing the role of neurotransmitters and neuropeptides that integrate signals and regulate behavior.

Additional chapters discuss cellular physiology, plasticity and the integration of electrical signals that contribute to neural activity. The final section of the book connects the role of amygdala dysfunction and the development of disorders in human health and disease.

Key Features

  • Emphasizes a comparative and multidisciplinary approach on the topic of the amygdala
  • Discusses, in detail, the role of amygdala dysfunction and the development of disorders in human health and disease
  • Examines the current state of research in cellular physiology, plasticity and the integration of electrical signals
  • Includes a dedicated section on neuropeptides, neurotransmitters and cannabinoids that links to behavior control

Readership

Advanced students, basic researchers, and clinical researchers in behavioral neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, developmental neuroscience, neuroendocrinology, and neurology

About the Editors

Janice Urban Editor

Janice H. Urban is Professor and Chair of the Discipline of Physiology and Biophysics and Director for the Center for the Neurobiology of Stress Resilience and Psychiatric Disorders at the Chicago Medical School/Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in North Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Urban completed her graduate training in the department of Pharmacology at Loyola University Chicago and post-doctoral work at the University of Washington and Northwestern University. Dr. Urban’s research focuses on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying stress responses and the development of stress resilience. Most recently, her work examines the role of neuropeptide Y (NPY) receptors in generating resilience through modulation of neural circuits in the amygdala.
