Hi All
       Does anyone have any more uptodate references on the role of the
limbic system particularly the hippocampus and amygdala in the production
of the emotional responses we feel to certain stimula. What for instance is
the current view of how certain peoples faces can generate a fearful response
? obviously there is some memory involved here but how are memories of facial
characteristics linked to emotions. As you can see from the signitature below
I am not a neuroscientist but would be intrested to here from any currently
working in this or other related areas

Thanks

Shaw Green
