2018 bioRxiv   pre-print
However, the elements of the top-down circuitry encoding the memory of the location of food is largely unknown, as are the high-order processes that control satiety.  ...  We also found that activation of these neurons interferes with the valence of food and the acquisition of a spatial memory linking food to a location via projections from the hippocampus to the lateral  ...  This group is referred to as Context+Food.  ...

Repeated 6-Hz Corneal Stimulation Progressively Increases FosB/ΔFosB Levels in the Lateral Amygdala and Induces Seizure Generalization to the Hippocampus

Carmela Giordano, Jonathan Vinet, Giulia Curia, Giuseppe Biagini, Robert E Gross
2015 PLoS ONE  
These findings indicate a predominant role of amygdala in promoting progressively more severe convulsions as well as the late recruitment of the hippocampus in the seizure spread.  ...  Seizures always appeared in frontal cortex, but only at the fourth stimulation they involved the hippocampus, suggesting the establishment of an epileptogenic process.  ...  In the tentative to reconsider the role of the hippocampal formation and related limbic regions in the 6-Hz model, we modified the stimulation protocol in order to simulate the occurrence of recurrent  ...
