    Brainy rap song

    For my anatomy class I must create a rap song that details and explains the part of the brain called the Amygdala. I am no rapper and do not listen to the stuff....with the provided info could anyone help me out.




    AMYGDALA



    Brain. 1. An almond-shaped neuro structure involved in producing and responding to nonverbal signs of anger, avoidance, defensiveness, and fear. 2. A small mass of gray matter that inspires aversive cues, such as the freeze reaction, sweaty palms, and the tense-mouth display. 3. A primeval arousal center, originating in early fishes, which is central to the expression of negative emotions in man.

    Usage: Many gestures reflect the amygdala's turmoil. In an anxious meeting, e.g., we may unconsciously flex our arms, lean away, or angle away from colleagues who upset us. Lip, neck, and shoulder muscles may tense as the amygdala activates brain-stem circuits designed to produce protective facial expressions (see, e.g., TENSE-MOUTH) and protective postures (see, e.g., BOW and CROUCH). The amygdala also prompts releases of adrenaline and other hormones into the blood stream, thus stepping-up an avoider's response and disrupting the control of rational thought.

    RESEARCH REPORTS: 1. "The amygdala coordinates the actions of the autonomic and endocrine systems and is involved in emotions" (Kelly and Dodd 1991:277). 2. The amygdala may be part of a "general-purpose defense response control network" (LeDoux 1996:158). 3. "Unpleasant odours . . . activate the amygdala and the cortex in the temporal lobe (insula)" (Carter 1998:114; see BIG MAC®).

    Neuro notes. In addition to its other duties, the amygdala's gray matter evolved to mediate the evolutionary ancient chemical nervous system, represented today by our bloodstream. Working through the hypothalamus, the amygdala releases excitatory hormones into circulating blood. After surgical removal of the amygdala, growls, screams, angry voices, and other negative signs may lose their meaning and become incomprehensible as afferent cues.

    ok cacky wrote this one:

    AMYGDALA

    amygdala, what the **** is that?
    why am i writing a rap to describe this crap for a class?
    aren't classes supposed to teach you things? instead i'm sitting here with my dictionary writing ryhmes that don't make sense
    tis kinda scary fighting crimes with a picket fence
    but fear exists here because of the amygdala
    do koalas have amygdalas? does koala and amygdala even ryhme?
    what a waste of time this is but the amydala does coordinate the actions of the autonomic and endocrine systems and is involved in emotions, such as anger avoidance defensiveness and fear
    and writing this rap makes me angry, makes me avoidant and defensive when my mom yells at me for being senseless
    many gestures reflect the the amygdala's turmoil. In an anxious meeting, we may unconsciously flex our arms, lean away, or angle away from colleagues who upset us
    or when we're fed up with writing raps for sanctioned teachings, we may subconsiously stab our moms, kill a gay, or strangle gay colleagues who upset us/or we could run them over with a bus, but that wouldn't be as much fun
    the amygdala also disrupts rational thought, i think my professor ought to have his examined, cuz the peckers brain seems a little contaminated - dumb old lady, i think maybe i'ma go kill a baby
    **** there goes the amygdala again, a primeval arousal center, originating in early fishes, which is central to the expression of negative emotions in man
    apparently this evil thing is making me a spousal beater, fornicating with fugly bitches, which is essential to the progression of sedative explosions in man
    anyway basically what you learned today is that this assignment is gay, and the amygdala is what made me say...
    ...that, or something, next time think of a better assignment, you dumb carrot

    that's actually quite good. prolly a little too offensive but it does get the role of the amygdala in a rap. and well.

    Ok I took some of both raps...tell me if you think it sounds ok. BTW, thanks for the help cack and bammer...even if I make your mom eat my chowda bammer.





    I am the fear in your heart,
    your muscles when they tense,
    and your fists when they clench,
    I am the hatred in your heart when your world falls apart.
    What am I? I am why your senses are on red alert like osama hiding in the dirt.
    I am the V in violence, the reason you are a client pouring your feelings out to a stranger to void you of your anger.
    So what am I? Since my rhymes did not propel you, I will go ahead and tell you. I am the amygdala

    amygdala, what the f*ck is that?
    why am i writing a rap to describe this crap for a class?
    aren't classes supposed to teach you things?
    Instead i'm sitting here with my dictionary writing ryhmes that don't make sense.
    what a f*cking waste of time.
    But the amygdala does coordinate the actions of the system called endocrine.
    fear exists because of the amygdala.


    Amygdala...it is involved in emotions, such as anger, avoidance, defensiveness, and fear.
    and writing this rap makes me angry, it makes me avoidant and defensive when I am feeling senseless.

    or when we're fed up with writing raps for sanctioned teachings, we may subconsiously stab our moms, kill a gay, or strangle gay colleagues who upset us/or we could run them down with a truck, but that wouldn't be as much fun


    the amygdala also disrupts rational thought, i think my professor ought to have her head examined, cuz the broads brain seems a little contaminated - dumb old lady, i think maybe i'ma go kill a baby...
    thanks to my amygdala

    There goes my amygdala again, a primeval arousal center, which is central to the expression of negative emotions in man.
    apparently this evil thing is making me a spousal beater, fornicating with ugly bitches, which is essential to the progression of sedative explosions in man.
    anyway basically what you learned today is that this assignment is f*cking gay
    and all this sh*t I had to say...the amygdala is responsible for it...

    Well I dont necessarily have to read it out loud in front of class. There were I think 7 different parts of the brain she wanted the class to write about. The class has about 80 people in it so she divided the 7 parts up between all the students. Had each one number off from 1 to 7. Now on monday, all the #1's will get together and read each others raps, and they pick the best one and that one is read aloud to the class. Same thing goes for numbers 2-7. Hopefully I wont have to read anything aloud in front of the class...and if I do, I hope it stirs up some controversy in the class.
