2009), but extra-frontal brain regions, such as the amygdale are also involved in impulsive control (Bechara 2005); our data are consistent with these earlier findings.
The soundness of the left amygdale is considerably related to operation with positive and negative words at instant recollection, while at the same time the soundness of the right amygdala is not related to instant recollection operation with either valence (during the time that the left amygdala may back the encoding of both positive and negative components in addition to the strengthening of positive material, the right amygdala may chiefly back the fortification of negative material).
Endogenous glucocorticoids influence complex biological processes, such as growth, metabolism and immunity; they also control the hunger centre, the sleep/wakefulness cycle; they affect learning and memorising processes by interacting with specific receptors, localized in the prefrontal cortex, the hippocampus and the amygdale (1, 2, 3).

Although it is now clear that the amygdale is not so specialized for fear, but processes a broader range of emotions, it was found that certain persons were impaired in their ability to judge the level of arousal of their emotions with negative valence (unpleasant emotions), including fear, anger, disgust and sadness.
Oxytocin increases trust-related behaviors towards members of the social group (Kosfeld, Heinrichs, Zak, Fischbacher, & Fehr, 2005), activity in the lateral and dorsal regions of the amygdale following exposure to positive social cues (Gamer, Zurowski, & Buchel, 2010) and the salience of social information of close or reliable others (Bartz, Zaki, Bolger, & Ochner, 2011).
