Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the things you can think up if only you try!
~ Dr. Seuss (March 02, 1904 - September 24, 1991)
Most of us are familiar with the fact that we can remember things better if those memories are formed at a time when there is a strong emotional impact -- times when we are frightened, angry, or falling in love, ... That's called emotional-memory formation. The amygdala is the part of the brain that is responsible for formation of emotional memory.
~ James Olson (October 08, 1930 - )
