Title: The Amygdalae of the Limbic System
Author: Audra Geras
Description: This 3D illustration of the limbic system places the focus on the amygdalae, two small pea-shaped structures on either side of the limbic system, that play a crucial role in the processing of emotional memory and experiences, including fear and anxiety. The amygdalae serve as a guage able to detect the degree of danger in our environments. They are central to the inappropriate reactions experienced by people who suffer from chronic phobias, obsessions and generalized anxiety.
