Amygdala basolateral nuclear complex pyramidal neuron

Name: Amygdala basolateral nuclear complex pyramidal neuron
Description: These neurons make up ~80-85% of neurons in the basolateral nuclear complex of the amygdala. Unlike cortical pyramidal cells, they are not arranged with parellel apical dendrites but are randomly organized.[1]
Synonym(s): Pyramidal cell basolateral amygdalar nucleus, Amygdala basolateral nucleus pyramidal neuron
Has role: Principal neuron role
Abbreviation: PN
Super-category: Neuron
Id: nifext_152
Organism: Mammal

Soma Specific Properties

Cell Soma Shape: Pyramidal[2]
Cell Soma Size: Large soma[3]
Soma Location: Basolateral nuclear complex

Dendrite Specific Properties

Spine density on dendrites: spiny high density

Axon Specific Properties

Axon myelination: myelinated
Axon projection laterality: bilateral
Origin of axon: soma
Location of distant axon arborization: Cerebral cortex, hippocampus, striatum, basal forebrain, amygdala, bed nucleus of stria terminalis
Location of local axon arborization: intranuclear

Intrinsic Properties

Neurotransmitter released: Glutamate[4]
Neurotransmitter receptors: AMPA-type glutamate-gated cationic channel, NMDA-type glutamate-gated cationic channel, GABA A-gated anionic channel, GABA-B Receptor[5]
Molecular constituents: Calcium calmodulin protein kinase II
