Researchers show freezing behavior associated with feat is associated with an internally generated brain state that manifests in sustained 4 Hz oscillatory dynamics in the dorsal medial prefrontal cortex-basolateral amygdala circuits.
Frequently, as many as one thousand signals rain down on a single neuron simultaneously. To ensure that precise signals are delivered, the brain possesses a sophisticated inhibitory system. Scientists have now illuminated how this system works.
Researchers use large scale neural recording and big data to reveal how observed social threat is recalled from memory.
