What is the amygdala’s role in memory?



  1. 0 Votes

    The Amygdala are two-almond shaped glands, densely packed with cells that are involved in emotional learning and memory. Neurons fire electrical synapses through the brain in response to emotional stimuli. It is in the Amygdala that these impulses are decoded and read for the emotions they contain. These are usually grouped into two categories; positive responses that make you feel happy, fulfilled, etc. and negative responses, such as fear, hunger, regret, etc. The Amygdala stores and processes these electrical signals to reference in future emotional situations.
