Question by Jean: What neurotransmitters calm the amygdala when your feeling angry?
I’m doing a project on emotions and what happens in your brain and I’m almost done with Anger. I need to know how the amygdala calms down. I know the prefrontal cortex calms it down, but I know neurotransmitters do too. I just need to know specifically, How does the prefrontal cortex calm it down, where do the neurotransmitters come from that calm the amygdala down?
Answer by CAUTION:Truth may hurt!
GABA would play a partial role in it. Dopamine is generally also associated with better moods.
