I think this is a case of an inebriated translator.. Or someone whose attention is lacking due to a problem with snoring and who needs their amygdale removed.. The book is Attention: Theory and Practice - by Addie Johnson and Robert W. Procter. I am reading it in Spanish translation, I don't have access to it in English. The exact sentence: Dado que el ronquido está frecuentemente causado por una apnea, la cual puede deberse a la presencia de amígdalas de gran tamaño, etirpar las amígdalas podría, en algunos casos, mejorar el cuadro de TDAH. My translation: Given that snoring is frequently caused by an apnea, which can be due to the presence of large amygdalae, removing the amygdale could, in some cases, improve ADHD. Am I right in thinking this is completely wrong? There is no citation, but I found this study: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3468947/ And the following sentence: The estimated source generator in response to the frequent stimuli for control children was in the limbic lobe (estimated in the uncus of the amygdala).
