>endorphins

Just natures painkillers, but pain is a weird state of mind anyway, apparently computer games can reduce the pain threshold. So I am gueesing pain is more psychological than ph ysical.

endorphins are also released in a large quantity when you orgasm. i also read that seeing a sexy body, being touched, smelling the smell of your lover, and interpreting body language can also release some endorphins along with some happy dopamine.

ive read of voodooists doing things completely unheard of in terms of pain, like putting their hands in molten metal, pouring boiling oil over their chest and just a buncha other amazing feats of pain. the gov't trains special ops guys in controlling pain, apparently you can ignore pretty much anything thats happening to you. mind over matter!

Ive got a great book related to the topics of this website, and beyond:

Solomon H. Snyder, Drugs and the Brain. Scientific American Library, New York. 1996.

Other than that i have textbooks, and random other books at my house, not here with me @ my apartment.

im really interested in the chemical/physical/electrical reactions of neurotransmitters/drugs. most of my knowledge is from chapter 5 of the psilocybin solution and a crappy book i picked up on nueropsychology, it only breifly touches on synapses and chem/electric activity of the brain.

i read in this nueropsychology book about this guy who had this amazing memory. he rememebered this one table with about 60 differnt numbers, 16 years after seeing it, and he only studied it for 2-3 mins. he could recite all the numbers, forwards, backwards, diagonally, the sum of all the numbers, and all the numbers in numerical order. not only could he do trivial shit like remembering numbers, but he remembered "everything" since he was born. even being born he says he remembers. this amazing guy eventually commited suicide when he started getting his senses confused... i.e. he explained how this one lady's voice gave him a hallucination of black sparks flying out of her mouth.. and he also was confusing alot of other senses together...seeing sounds, hearing taste, etc...

For psychopharmacology, I recommend:

A Primer of Drug Action : A Concise Nontechnical Guide to the Actions, Uses, and Side Effects of Psychoactive Drugs, Revised and Updated by Robert M. Julien

...and the definitive source for general neuroscience is probably this book:

Principles of Neuroscience by Kandell, Schwartz, and Jessell

There are thousands of books and journals written from the perspectives of both the behavioral (e.g. cognition, consciousness, clinical and neuropsychology, learning, memory, and perception) and "hard" (e.g. molecular and developmental biology, organic chemistry, biophysics, artificial intelligence, etc.) sciences as well, not to mention numerous from the intersection of each of these disciplines.

My Uncle had a photographic memory too. All he had to do was see a page in a book for a few minutes and could quote it verbatim. I always have envied people that had this gift. :smile:
