The Amygdala

A Functional Analysis

Second Edition

Edited by John P. Aggleton

This new edition of a book first published in 1992 provides an up-to-date analysis of the functions of the amygdala, the brain structure that governs the ways in which our emotions affect our actions and our memories, and how we interact socially with others. It is also thought that malfunctions of the amygdala contribute to a number of disorders affecting personality, for example Alzheimer's disease, autism and schizophrenia. THe contributors are leading experts in their field, from the UK and the United States.
