Location of your AMYGDALA Location of your brain's FRONTAL LOBES
Amygdala Locator: This drawing shows where the right amygdala is (follow the arrow). The left side of your brain also has one (other side, hidden here). Please note, the wrinkly cortex "gray matter" and glial cells "white matter" of the brain is not shown. These other structures are other parts of the brain's "limbic system" (the "mammal brain").
In the 1970's, independent brain researcher and behaviorist T.D.A. Lingo introduced the idea that deliberate and conscious control of the amygdala and it's accompanying positive or negative responses in the brain was possible. His behavior modification facility, which he affectionately named The Dormant Brain Research and Development Laboratory (in existence, 1957-1993), tested this hypothesis over several decades. Lingo methodically observed via longitudinal studies that such a thing was indeed possible. His methods included visualization and meditation along with a variety of other behavior modification techniques.
The veracity of such methods to directly affect the amygdala and resultant brain functions was corroborated by later research, such as that carried on by Sara W. Lazar and Herbert Benson . (Sara W. Lazar, "Stress reduction correlates with structural changes in the amygdala", https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2840837/ Sara W. Lazar, G, Gollub Bush, G.L. Fricchione, G. Khalsa G, Herbert Benson, “Functional brain mapping of the relaxation response and meditation”, NeuroReport, 11: 1581-1585, (2000).)
"Clicking" the amygdala, is the "slang" phrase first coined by Lingo that refers to either automatic (reactive non-deliberate) or conscious deliberate activation of amygdaloid body processes (by cortex influence).
These days, this is a preferred IMAGE and phrase...
"TICKLE YOUR AMYGDALA"
Why "tickle" instead of "click"? "Tickle" is a generally positive image and thought, whereas "click" is more neutral and may indicate a click backwards into negativity as well as a forward positive click. Research with thousands of people over the past several decades shows that "Tickle Your Amygdala" is preferred. But, just use what works best for you.
When the amygdala's connections to the R-complex (or "reptile brain", Dr. Paul McLean) are activated, fight or flight and basic reactionary survival processes occur in brain/body. The slang for this is "clicking backward". It is primary and basic, and automatic.
When cortex and frontal lobes processes overcome the limitations of the reactive reptile brain, the slang is "clicking the amygdala forward". The brain rewards certain enhanced survival behaviors with pleasure, and this patterning of learned positive behavior involves the amygdala and its connections to the forward pre-frontal cortex. This can be done consciously and deliberately.
The brain's advanced electrochemical circuits can be and are controlled with THOUGHT. This is beyond any conjecture, and just a plain simple fact.
To click your amygdala forward - to cause changes in amygdala function and in brain process- you don't need any machines, gadgets, pills, or signing up for expensive retreats or courses.
How to TICKLE your amygdala forward and eventually !POP! your frontal lobes? Just start by reading through this site.
1) First, read at The Library . There is LOTS of free and useful information at these places and elsewhere throughout the entire Amazing Brain website.
When you are ready, The Frontal Lobes Supercharge is a portable, non-electric BOOK -very convenient, works anywhere. It will further CLARIFY all aspects of clicking into your frontal lobes. The book systematically removes- one by one- all the obstacles that society puts in your way. It will quickly remove all the unconscious habits that keep you clicked backward. Commercial over.
Tickle your amygdala forward is like wiggling your finger. Only it happens inside your brain instead of on the end of your arm. Do this: wiggle your right index finger.....easy, isn't it? Okay, wiggle your left big toe....easy too? Now, locate your amygdala (see chart above)....you click it forward using your frontal lobes- IMAGE that your amygdala is like a click toggle switch- Now click the switch forward towards your forehead. There! You did it.

Not sure you're doing it right? Read everything at the rest of this site for clues and you won't have any problem. You will learn how to click your amygdala forward and turn on genius levels of creativity, intelligence, pleasure, and even ESP in 1/10 the amount of time that students took to learn back in the early days of our brain research. After 40 total years of research and practical teaching to folks like you- we now know the shortcuts and what works best.
Note the very obvious olfactory bulbs (looks like squid tentacles) reaching back into the posterior amygdaloid area. These make for an easy, if temporary, click forward- see The Nose Knows.
NOTE: "Click Your Amygdala" written and performed by Eric Vincent, and played on T.D. Lingo's actual 1950's Vega Banjo. Illustration from "The Brain" by Richard Restak (excellent reference book).

The AMAZING BRAIN ADVENTURE's MOST POPULAR PAGES:
Your Amazing Brain Adventure is a web site all about Tickling Your Amygdala- i.e. turning on the best part of your brain as easy as clicking on a light switch. This is done as easily as imagining a feather inside of your head stimulating a compass, the amygdala. The amygdala is a set of twin organs, a part of your brain that sits right in between the most advance part of your brain- the frontal lobes and pre-frontal cortex- and the most primitive part of your brain- your "reptile brain" and brain stem. By tickling your amygdala you instantly and directly increase creativity, intelligence, pleasure, and also make possible a spontaneous natural processes known as "paranormal abilities", although such things as telepathy and ESP are really as natural as breathing, or as easy doing simple math in your head. The ability to self stimulate the amygdala by something as simple as thought has been proven in laboratory experiments, such as those conducted at Harvard University research labs, 1999-2009, and can be tracked with modern brain scanning machines such as fMRI and PET... Indeed, thought is faster than light.
