Abstract:This article focuses on people suffering from social anxiety also known as social phobia. According to the Anxiety Disorders Association of America, the key element of social anxiety is extreme anxiety about being judged by others or behaving in a way that might cause embarrassment or ridicule. Anxiety, shyness and fear are rooted deeply in the amygdala, an intricate part ofthe limbic system, the brain's emotional response center. The amygdala records and stores all negative experiences and then directs the body's respinse, a racing heart, elevated blood pressure or panic.
