When an individual is faced with a "fight or Flight" situation there is an immediate stimulation of the Amygdala, or aggression center of the limbic system located within the brain. This activation of the amygdala creates instantaneous biological and physiological changes that may be visible and articulable prior to violent actions occurring. through the awareness of this subconscious leakage attempts may be made to diffuse the situation or prepare for action
