Examples of neuro-anatomical connections between region or process sources, which have an active inhibitory effect over a region or process target, are: 1) The fronto-thalamic circuit, whe re the prefrontal cortex inputs into the reticular nucleus and the latter sends GABAergics to the thalamus, actively inhibiting the thalamic cells and potentially limiting information input; 2) The frontostriatal or fronto-subthalamic circuit; and 3) The front-amygdalin circuit, where the fronto-medial inputs to the amygdale excite the GABAergic cells, which suppress amygdaline activity (Amaral & Price, 1984; Quirk et al.
