In which part of the brain is fear hidden?

Since September 11, 2001, New York has become the center of a new epidemic of fear and anxiety that has rapidly spread through the western world. The Hidden Face of fear recounts the studies of two of the world’s leading experts on fear and memory, Joseph LeDoux and Eric Kandel and the application of their findings on patients at the Center for the neuroscience of fear and anxiety in New York. This research brings the hidden face of fear to the surface, and seeks new answers in the deepest part of the human brain.
