The Amygdala: its name is latin for almond which relates to its shape. It helps in storing and classifying emotionally charged memories. It plays a large role in producing our emotions, especially fear. It's been found to trigger responses to strong emotion such as sweaty palms, freezing, increased heart-beat/respiration and stress hormone release. Stress during development causes them to shrink. Underdeveloped, they no longer process stress properly and you suffer the effects of PTSD and bipolar. Child abuse victims commonly suffer from underdeveloped amygdala

The hippocampus, memory-processor of the brain, has been also shown to shrink in those with PTSD, and it seems (so far) that the smaller the structure is, the worse the PTSD. Dysfunction in both is involved.

Best Answer

Oh, and I will have to look up whether the amygdala shrinks in those who get adult-onset PTSD.

Best Answer

*curtsy* Lady Hippo- the more we know the better it feels- I cherish learning I'm not alone and it isn't my fault. Thank you
