  • Cognitive scientists distinguish between normal risk-assessment decisions, which activate the reward-prediction regions of the brain, and decisions made amid extreme uncertainty, which generate activity in the amygdala.

Description
  • Amygdala, also known as Aaron Helzinger, is a super-strong and mentally unstable enemy of Batman. The removal of the in his brain has lessened his mental capacity and made him completely unable to control his emotional reactions, and he is very prone to violent outbursts at the slightest provocation. Helzinger is not intentionally evil, and tends to be simple-minded and good-natured, but his savagery makes him a very dangerous and uncontrollable brute. Primarily he is located in Gotham City although he has also lived in Bludhaven where he was an ally of Nightwing. He is usually seen as a patient in Arkham Asylum, and he has also been a member of the Secret Society of Super-Villains. Amygdala was created by Alan Grant and Norm Breyfogle, first appearing in .

  • Lower animals with much smaller frontal lobes than humans - chimpanzees, for example - are not able to SELF-CONTROL their amygdala like you can with your human brain. By learning how to click your amygdala forward whenever you like, life becomes beautiful - instead of stinky. If you identify yourself as one of the "lower animals," then it would not behoove you to learn how to "click" you amygdala on demand, since much of the time it will happen automatically as determined by environmental factors. Thus, you can dropout now and retain your spot on the evolution hierarchy. If you do choose to do such, then do not falsely assume that by subscribing to the "stinky life" philosophy is necessarily a bad thing. Remember, all forms of life have a place in the Big Guy's scheme. Besides, “lower” mammals seem ecstatic with their designated roles in the "stinky life" style. Ever notice how some of the "higher" of the "lower" mammals (doggies) introduce themselves to each other by stuffing their proboscises up each others anal orifices? The fact that they do it with such relish, enthusiasm, and gusto should be enough proof to anyone that the “stinky life” is not all the bad? The main difference between us (higher) and them (lower) is that we perform such acts as part of a greater strategy and that, as we know, is a higher brain function found only in the uniquely human frontal lobes and the fact that we are capable of identifying the fact as a fact classifies us as “higher.” As humans we are capable of rationalizing the performance of such acts as being a part of a larger ingratiation strategy...a necessary survival tactic that has been environmentally selected for. As it turns out- the amygdala is connected directly to your olfactory nerves- your nose and sense of smell. Utterly profound this is, for it scientifically objectifies the existence of lives "stinky things” and supports our claim that the amygdala controls all aspects of the “stinky life.” Furthermore, this neural-geographic tidbit alone is enough to prove that what we are saying is “cosmically ordained by the Big Computer in the Sky” due to the fact than nothing in the universe is a product of chance, but was will into existence by our Big Computer. If you do not like to work, don't want to read this entire article but want the benefits, then luckily for you there is the "Amygdala Clicking Shortcut." The Amygdala Clicking Shortcut. First you need to find some monstrous bloke. The next step is to activate the "finger wiggling" you did above. For this to work effectively then approach the intimidating stranger you just identified, look him/her straight into the eye, raise your right hand between the both of you, and wiggle your middle finger in his face. Chances are, he will then help you click you amygdala forward and backward by pounding your face into the nearby brick wall. Realize though, that the amygdala stuff only it happens inside your brain instead of on the end of your arm. Yes, it is this type of profundity that makes us the unique species that we are. What other animal could tell you that a brain component is in the brain, and a finger is on a hand? Highly evolved us humans are.

  • Amygdala first appeared in Shadow of the Bat #3 in 1992 during the story arc of the four-parter Batman: The Last Arkham which began the new line of comics. In the issue, Amygdala was forced to attack Batman by the maddened asylum administrator Jeremiah Arkham,who had decided that new inmate Batman needed to "be taught a lesson". Responding to hoots from other inmates, Arkham insisted that "this is a scientific demonstration, NOT a public spectacle". Reluctant to fight someone who was truly mentally ill, Batman fought for his life nonetheless and put down his attacker as painlessly as possible. Batman subdued Amygdala, but was then forced to face more inmates, including the Joker, Two-Face, Mad Hatter, Black Mask, Cavalier, and Egghead. Amygdala later appeared in Part 2 of the year-long story arc Batman: Knightfall, which also saw other characters introduced in Batman: The Last Arkham return to the comic book universe, most notably Mr. Zsasz and Jeremiah Arkham. In Knightfall, when Bane and his associates unleashed the asylum's inmates into the Gotham streets, Amygdala found himself paired with the Ventriloquist, who found that his looming shadow gave him instant credibility: ("You're laughing at my little friend? NOBODY laughs at my LITTLE FRIEND!") Batman intercepted Ventriloquist, but was promptly attacked by Amygdala. As Ventriloquist escaped, Batman was once again forced to subdue the giant with a blow to the base of the skull and the villain no longer took part in Knightfall. Imprisoned temporarily at Blackgate Prison (Showcase '94 # 3), Amygdala was included in a baseball game between the Arkham inmates and the other Blackgate prisoners. "Amygdala," team captain Doc Faustus said, "your sense of direction stinks -- " "Grrr!" "But your STRENGTH is UNMATCHED! You will be our star hitter!" "Yeah! A star!" It all came down to this: "The bases are loaded -- and it's Amygdala at the bat." Taunted by the other team, Amygdala took off after them -- bat in hand. In the wake of the ensuing riot, all the inmates were confined to their cells. Amygdala reappeared in 1995's GUY GARDNER: WARRIOR # 29 prior to being engaged in another riot at Arkham Asylum during the Neron-induced madness (UNDERWORLD UNLEASHED: BATMAN - DEVIL"S ASYLUM # 1). He came narrowly close to killing Jeremiah Arkham in the melee before guards overpowered him with tazers. Aaron's violent outbursts continued for a time (as seen in flashback in Batman Villains Secret Files# 1) but eventually, Helzinger began responding to treatment and his last reported flare-up (Batman # 550) was attributed to an unprovoked attack on his cell. Thanks to an implant, Amygdala was released from Arkham, moving south to Bludhaven. Aaron took an apartment in a building managed by Bridget Clancy in Nightwing #17, where Dick Grayson (Nightwing) was residing. Initially caught off guard by his new neighbor, Dick soon welcomed him to the building. Aaron's new life hit a snag almost immediately when tremors from the Gotham earthquake damaged the apartment and he and his neighbors were sent out into the streets. When the owners announced their intention to condemn the structure, Aaron was invited to take part in a tenants' uprising but he demurred: "I am not allowed to get into confruth -- con-fron-TASHUNS, Mr. Law. The doctor told me that. Yes." In the end, the building was purchased by Haly Enterprises, secretly owned by Dick Grayson, and the residents got free room and board in a downtown hotel until it was rebuilt. After Dick's apartment was rebuilt, He lived in the hero's apartment building, living in a spacious basement quarters and got a job as a warden in Lockhaven Prison. When Blockbuster was in the process of breaking Nightwing down both physically and emotionally, he blew up Grayson's apartment complex with Amygdala inside. Amygdala survived, but was heavily traumatized by the death of his friends. In the Infinite Crisis storyline, Amygdala joined Alexander Luthor, Jr.'s Secret Society, having turned back to crime in order to survive. He has recently been seen in the 2008 mini-series Gotham Underground, drinking in the Penguin's Iceberg Lounge.
