Chapter 1 endnote 42, from Lisa Feldman Barrett.
Some context is:
In 2008, my lab along with neurologist Chris Wright demonstrated why the amygdala increases in activity in response to the basic emotion fear faces. The activity increases in response to any face — whether fearful or neutral — as long as it is novel (i.e., the test subjects have not seen it before).
