the Other Half of the Brain
    #2478708 - 03/27/04 08:14 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I bought the latest Scientific American for this article on glial cells. Sorry that SA doesn't post the whole article.

Basically, it's about how glial cells have been overlooked (WHY? I ask) for years. Apparently they are also capable of sending and processing signals (formerly thought to be the exclusive domain of the neuron). Very interesting.

I been talking to a person. This dosnt apply to what you are saying. But one half uses info like numbers. The other uses sound vibrations felling. I been using bilateral stimulation to get balance in my mind. Thus far it seems to work. Bilateral stimulation also very interesting!

I have this SA as well, but i wasnt sure what to make of all of it. But i wonder if amyloid effects it? I was talking to my neurologist friend/family friend, he said that amyloid clusters itsled around neurons and causes them to die off in the case of alzheimers. I was gonna ask him about that, but my knowledge of the subject is very... low.

Does smoking pot hurt glial cells?  :grin:

yeah, but without the actual muscle... creatine just adds water, no... it makes you look big without giving you lots of strength. You think pot smokers pretend to be really smart, they are just... full of hot air? LOL. I guess their real strength wont come from a photograph :wink:.

Explain yourself man!

Many overlooked pieces we are my Precious! Just read in Discover(Me thinks it was anyway) about the role of our so called genetic "junk" and how much of what we are is determined by it.One must also wonder if some of the more neuronal type immune cells may also play into our consciousness at some level.
PS Cannabinoids are effctive against glial tumors and remove amyloid plaques from the brain. The Gov is patenting Dexabinol for these ailments and stroke.
And I do test aproximatly 10pts higher(lol) on an IQ test while slightly "stoned" :wink:

Cannabinoids are also effective against work-related illnesses. (Anybody who wants to work, must be ill!  :yesnod:)
