Corticolimbic Circuit: Recognition and Reaction

This amygdala-centric circuit supports recognition and reaction life-sustaining behaviors. Key nodes of this circuit interact to make us aware of our changing world and then coordindate our responses to it. Dysfunction within this circuit underlies many mood and anxiety disorders (e.g., major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, PTSD) and disorders of social behavior (e.g., autism spectrum disorders, antisocial personality disorder).
