Background: In chronic experiments on rabbits, we demonstrated that electrolytic destruction of the dorsal amigdalofugal way - stria terminalis results in intense depression of the integral electrical activity of the hippocampus. Morphological changes in neurons and satellite glial cells, such as lysis of the Nissl substance, hyperchromatosis, and wrinkling of the cells after destruction of the stria terminalis, were proof of the correctness of our conclusion. It is postulated that one of the main factors underlying the generalized effects observed in our experiments is probably the disturbance of functional characteristics of the hypothalamo- hypophyseal neurosecretory system induced by destruction of the amygdalofugal connections; this disturbance results in significant pathological shifts of metabolism in the hippocampus.
