    The Woman who Cannot Feel Fear

    Post by Al Peasland on Sun Dec 19, 2010 4:56 pm

    A friend sent me this link to a news article about a woman who cannot feel fear

    She is lacking the important part of her brain that processes dangers and threats and triggers the fear emotion - the Amygdala

    I'd read about animals having this part of their brain removed and the resulting lack of fear - but apparently it's the first known case in humans.

    Just thought I'd post this on here as it's a fascinating little article

    First known case in medical terms I suppose.

    But I know of quite a few people that genuinely could not give a crap about anything, are not scared of anything. Its usually down to a shit upbringing and years of severe drug misuse.
