Researchers in one study have figured marijuana use likely will not directly affect the size of the amygdala, a brain site associated with emotion, emotional motivation and behavior. We found that while cannabis users experienced lower amygdala volumes than nonusers, that difference appears to be linked to other predisposing elements, said senior writer Arpana Agrawal, an associate professor of psychiatry at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
