//A student walks in to Ms. Smrek's psychology class Student: Hey Ms. Smrek. Smrek: ...did you come in here just to say that? Student: Yup. Smrek: ...go back to class. Student: But I have Mr. Whitacre!! Smrek: HA! Too bad, go back to his class. Student (while walking out): You know, we were talking about how you and Mr. Whitacre should get married. You could have angry babies!
Mrs. Smrek: So the amygdala controls aggression and fear. What? Brendan: Would amputating the amygdala- Smrek: NO! What is it with you and amputating?
Brendan: So if you amputated the brainstem, would that cure fear? Mrs. Smrek: Yes, but it would also mean your heart stops and you die. //Later Brendan: What if you cut off the brainstem but left the medula there, would that get rid of phobias?
