Walk along major pathways!
Clicking at any area will open a new window with information on that area. Check connections in the new page and choose one leading to the next area of the pathway. Should you get lost, just come back here.
So far we have illustration on
Collothalamic (or tectofugal) visual pathway:
Brain areas involved in passive avoidance learning
Passive avoidance learning in chicks is an important system in which to study memory formation (for a review see free full paper by Steven Rose here)
Major areas involved in learning, their connections and possible roles have been identified. The circuitry proposed by Csillag (see abstract here) is represented in the figure bellow. However, any of those areas have many connections to regions involved in processing incoming information or motor response. Just how complicated the system might be was illustrated by Aniko Schrott at the Salve Meeting in Budapest in 2002.. Move your mouse over the figure to see more areas and more connections.
If that looks pretty complicated, see all known connections of those areas by clicking at them in the figure bellow. (Name of the region opens in a new window, for connections click at that page)
Of course, the pathways you found in the database are probably only a fraction of truely existing connections.
