    Aim: Breathing is not just for oxygen; it is now linked to the brain function and the behavior. Introduction: The aim of the current study is to know about the rhythm of breathing effects memory and fear. Breathing has never been before linked to anything other than the intake of oxygen, but now it seems to have connections to brain function-specifically, memory, and fear. Northwestern Medicine scientists have found for the first time that breathing rhythm induces electrical activity that enhances both memory recall and emotional judgments.Materials and Methods: A questionnaire was prepared. The survey was conducted among 115 students of Saveetha Dental College, Chennai, and the data were collected. The survey was prepared on survey planet and was circulated among the students. The questionnaire related to the survey was prepared. Results: Most of them are aware of knowing that breathing in not for oxygen, now it is linked to brain function and behavior. Moreover, the first discovery of this was found by northwestern scientists many of them are not aware of this. Conclusion: However, most of us breathe far too rapidly and with far too much volume (we over-breathe), which the study points out is our body’s instinctive, and advantageous, response to an emergency or dangerous state. This implies the way we now breathe, as a result of a mismatch between the body we inherited from our hunter-gatherer ancestors, and the culture we live in.
