We asked whether an intact amygdala is necessary for the enhanced perception of fear-related stimuli using continuous flash suppression (CFS).
Similar to healthy observers, patients with left or right amygdala lesions exhibited faster detection of fearful faces under CFS in comparison to other expressions, replicating previous findings (1).
