This Brain Games episode is a great way to help students learn about the amygdala and it's role with fear. I have used this episode during our Brain Unit and I have also used it around Halloween to help my AP Psych students understand the connection of fear and our emotions. You could also use this in the Memory Unit when discussing flashbulb memories. It even discusses the flight, flight, and freeze responses as well. This could aid discussion when looking at the sympathetic nervous system.
This video would also be great in a nursing course or Biology class.
The video is around 23 minutes. This lesson will take about 30 minutes when you add in debrief time. My worksheet contains 10 questions and I have provided an answer key for your convenience.
