BIPOLAR STUFF IN THE SHACK WITH JOHN AND MAGGIE
In this feature, Maggie Reese pulls random questions out of a container to ask John, the resident nerd. In this video, John discusses the amygdala in the brain and how it kickstarts fight or flight. From a recovery perspective, our nerd wisdom in this area can help us manage our stress. In a related question, John McManamy discusses the neurotransmitter GABA and its role in dealing with stress. Thanks to Maggie, brain science has never been more hilarious.
