  • Yes, it is a small almond-shaped section of the brain that is responsible for emotions, such as the "fight or flight" response or love. When things go wrong with it, people can develop anxiety, depression and other mental health disorders.

  • OMG!

    I better go get my AMYGALDA checked then! I AM kidding

    Is it on DEMAND ANON.........or on their website about him? I'll have to check. I never understood why people like that do what they do. Like what sets them off so bad to do these heinous acts of violence.

    Good thing science is out there and people researching to find the answers.......may explain why these nutjob terrorists are the way they are and the Jeffrey Dahlmers. Wonder if there is medication for that?
