Thanks for pointing this out Kathryn. I was really bothered to have the "Lizard" brain labelled as the seat of the emotions. I wish he would correct it. I haven't contacted the author directly because I figure if he didn't change it after your comment he's not going to for me. But I wanted you to know I appreciate your taking the time to point out the error. It's a little unsettling that this article is one of the first that appears under a google search for "lizard brain".
