Part A. Multiple Choice: 1. B 2. A 3. E 4. E 5. B 6. D 7. D 8. C 9. D 10. E Part B. Open-ended: These “answers” outline the information that is necessary to get full marks but your answer should involve more description/explanation in an organized fashion. You should start with an introduction to your answer (perhaps restating the question) and make some conclusionary remarks at the end. 1. Information is found in the emotion or the memory lecture. Multimodal sensory systems (i.e. visual info for “seeing” and auditory info for “hearing”) send projections to the basolateral amygdala (BLA) using both thalamic and cortical inputs. BLA is critical site for determining emotional relevance of the incoming pattern of neural activation produced by sensory stimuli—this relevance is based on prior learning (presumably). From the BLA, information is sent to the central nucleus of the amygdala (CN) as well as to areas important for generating conscious/motivated responses, including prefrontal cortex, nucleus accumbens, and lateral hypothalamus. The CN generates the automatic responses which include (1) reflexive behavior via outputs to brain stem, (2) sympathetic activation
