STOP! the brain can't be explained! it's just one of God's mysteries. STOP LEARNING!

Sorry....just a little wound up from dealing with irrational Jesus-freaks in another thread.

carry on.

I have a brain and I dont give a fark.
2002-03-16 10:48:36 AM  
my brain hurts, and i now hate you, neuroscience.
2002-03-16 10:48:38 AM  
I especially enjoyed "Knockin Noggins." That title told me right away that I was dealing with a quality scientific publication.
2002-03-16 10:50:34 AM  
'Big Un's' is way more scientific

The Brain's Stash
Scientists identified a substance in the brain that may have some similarities to marijuana.

Best posting there?
2002-03-16 10:52:28 AM  
"The Brains Stash" Well done brain, always one step ahead of me.
2002-03-16 10:52:54 AM  
I've always liked the word "Ganglia".
2002-03-16 10:55:12 AM

oh goddamn, not having a brain catches up with me again
2002-03-16 11:18:05 AM  
I read the article "Serotonin and Judgement". It was informative and easy-to-read. I'm always thinking about how I wish I knew more about my brain. I should bookmark that link for later reading. I should.
2002-03-16 11:28:28 AM  
Did anyone else just scroll down to the part about Drugs and skip the rest, or just me?

"Isolated on a remote island for several weeks, a scientist notes that his beard sprouts at a pathetic rate. Back in the company of women, his whisker growth returns to a gallop."

My beard grows much faster in winter, but I've never noticed this...maybe because I have so many girls crawling around me 24/7
2002-03-16 11:50:04 AM  
Are you pondering what I'm pondering Pinky?
2002-03-16 11:51:37 AM  
I think so Brain, but how's a banana supposed to use a keyboard?
2002-03-16 11:52:09 AM  
.. If I only had a brain..
2002-03-16 11:53:14 AM  
Tag line could have read "If you have a brain, you could be dangerous" and linked to the Violent Brain article..

Well I would have laughed. *looks at floor*
2002-03-16 11:57:54 AM  
(late to the party)

I think so Brain, but where are we going to find 20 tons of cottage cheese?
2002-03-16 12:00:30 PM  
I have 20 tons that I would be willing to sell for bizzare sexual favors.
2002-03-16 12:01:27 PM  
Where is it and how bizzare?
2002-03-16 12:02:36 PM  
why so many people quoting bad television shows or movies?

Depression can hit at any age. More than the blues, the overall feeling of doom can trigger some people to kill themselves. Researchers now are looking at this behavior from a new angle. Studies show that low levels of the brain chemical serotonin can in part lead to an overall insensitivity to future consequences, setting off impulsive and aggressive behaviors and perhaps culminating in suicide. By selectively restoring the chemicals' activity researchers hope to prevent destructive behavior as well as head off suicide -- the eighth leading cause of death in the U.S.

So just try exctasy.

Attic1212: Not me. I checked out the "Depression and Stress Hormones" artical right off. Actually, that's the only thing I've read. I'm wondering about CRF drugs, and whether or not my stress hormone levels are way to hight all the time. I mean, everyone's always telling me to relax, and all.. Um...

Yeah... uh...

Suho1004: Actually, it isn't unusual for scientists to have a sense of humor. ;) I've perused Science News before, and found some amusing titles. Actually, there have been some amusing articles as well. The one about the scientist increasing clams' sex drive with Prozac (or something like that; it's been a while) was quite funny.

As far as I know, Science News is a respected, peer-reviewed publication.

Peace out.

..."IF" you have a brain...

2002-03-16 02:43:47 PM  

This is just screaming to be photoshopped or captioned...
