And They Shall Know No Fear...

US woman has no sense of fear after brain damage and life is at risk accordingly - looks like fearless Space Marines (and the Chainsaw Warrior, another GW creation with his fear "cut out") would suffer with behaviour "lack[ing] any sense of desperation or urgency"

It does seem to infer that a fearless soldier could be created following surgery to his amygdala;

"SM suffers from a rare condition that has destroyed her amygdala, an almond-shaped region of the brain strongly linked to fear reactions."
