stripping amygdala

My understanding of neuroscience is extremely limited. However it appears from this wikipedia article that for River to have the symptoms that she had in Firefly (increased retention of information, increased emotional response) the Alliance would need to make the amygdala larger in some way. Not strip it.

Does anyone else have a better understanding of neuroscience or the amygdala and can explain why they might want to strip it and if it actually has an outer coating that can be stripped?
