Remembering Psychology

Psychology 1001 covered a wide range of topics in the field of psychology ranging from infants and language development, behavior, the brain, and personality. I learned a lot, but I can't say I have and will continue to retain all of the information. One part I will remember forever is the specific function of the amygdala. The amygdala is part of the limbic system in the brain. I'm not sure why, but I will always remember that the amygdala is the part of the brain that deals with fear and decodes scary or fearful situations. It also plays a factor in emotion, which makes sense because it's part of the limbic system. This topic may have been drained into our head and on every practice test I took, so I will always know its function. I will also remember that Wernicke and Broca's areas of the brain deal with understanding speech and language, and talking. These were interesting to me, and it's cool to know what specific parts of my brain are in action when I do certain things.
