Abstract

In order to elucidate the role of medial amygdala on the initiation and the maintenance of muricide following olfactory bulb lesions, bilateral medial amygdaloid lesions were performed after, prior to, or simultaneously with olfactory bulb lesions. Both the initiation and the maintenance of muricide following olfactory bulb lesions were suppressed by amygdaloid lesions, and this result suggests that the medial amygdala plays a facilitatory role in both the initiation and the maintenance of muricide in olfactory bulbectomized rats.
