Document Summary

In early 30s began suffering from severe headaches. It turned out a tumour the size of a small orange was growing behind his eyes. This tumour grew, forcing his frontal loves upward into the top of his skull. Once this tumour was removed, it would unavoidable to remove the surrounding frontal lobe tissue. At first his surgery was a success, went back to normal, but then he changed to no longer being able to experience emotion. The absence of emotion sabotaged his ability to make rational decisions. He was incapable of making trivial decisions and failed to learn from his mistakes. Emotions are a primary source of motivation and together they make things happen. They underlie the painful episodes most of us try to avoid and when they happen, try to forget. This case shows evidence of how various brain regions produce and regulate emotional responses as well as how emotions affect daily lives.
