Wait a minute. The first article is saying that they found that strIctly stimulating the amygdala and no areas around it actually REDUCES anxiety? And that the opposite has always been believed because they were always inadvertently also stimulating areas arOUnd the amygdala??
i don't understand.
The amygdala is associated with a fear/anxiety response not just because of studies that stimulate this area, but functional brain scans as well, right?
Can someone help me understand this?
