Amygdala

Amygdala (også kaldet frygtcenter, generthedspunkt eller g-punkt) er et lille område i hjernen, som blandt andet håndtere frygt.
Normalt aktiveres amygdala kun ved forskrækkelse, men hos generte mennesker er det nok, hvis de ser mennesker, som de ikke kender. Derfor kaldes amygdala også for generthedspunktet eller forkortet g-punkt.
