Caption: Amygdala in the brain. Computer artwork of a person's head showing the left hemisphere of the brain inside. The highlighted area shows the two amygdala (amygdalae). The amygdalae are almond-shaped groups of nuclei located deep within the medial temporal lobes of the brain. They are part of brain's limbic system, a primitive part of the brain involved in emotions, learning and the formation of memories. The amygdalae play a role in memory and emotional reaction - particularly the memory of those reactions.
