  1. Be careful with the bigass 800mg Ibuprofen pills. Ibuprofen in large doses has been linked to increased cardiac arrest risk... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/behindtheheadlines/news/2017-03-16-ibuprofen-claimed-to-raise-cardiac-arrest-risk-by-a-third/
  2. I would like to know if glucuronolactone (a energy drink ingredient) is a potential hallucinogen. Thank you
  3. "Empaths" are just people who express empathy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empath_(disambiguation)
  4. I'm skeptical about the conclusions of the first article I linked. If cannabis smoking positively influence the mood and behavior, this unique neural response is probably a form of cognitive flexibility.
  5. Resistance to bullying and ostracism is a positive form of cognitive flexibility...

    1. Raider5678


      I particularly like to construct the downfall of said bully.

      Good cognitive flexibility you say?


    2. StringJunky


      Or a thick skin.

  6. Okay. Here is the supporting evidences: 1. http://thescienceexplorer.com/brain-and-body/young-marijuana-users-show-unique-response-social-rejection-study-finds 2. http://www.eurekaselect.com/65967
  7. Are chronic cannabis users less sensitive to negative peer influence? (ie: Bullying, ostracism, etc...) How do chronic cannabis usage influence the mood and behavior? My hypothesis is that long-term cannabis administration may positively influence civilized behavior and fine-tune serotonergic brain circuits connected to behavioral flexibility.
  8. Nicoderm works really great for smoking cessation. Highly recommended stuff...
  9. Is aripiprazole a selective FAAH inhibitor/endocannabinoid enhancer? See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endocannabinoid_enhancer https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2704579/
  10. I found this study relevant to my OP: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25735995
  11. I'm back! Empathy and Love is connected to brain circuits into the limbic system...
  12. Some evidence of that would be nice. Some evidence of the non-physical mind would be nice. 1. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0960982210003271 2. http://www.manyworldsoflogic.com/mindbody.html
  13. Take a look at this paper: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28161598 Basically, it suggest that introspection and language are correlated: Verbal working memory and inner speech facilitates awareness of mind wandering.
  14. I agree. A lack of empathy/sympathy doesn't imply necessary a "psychiatric disorder". However, a disorder in the mirror neuron system could result in psychosis-like symptoms.
  15. What happens if you mix artificial intelligence with social neuroscience? Predictable Chaos...

  16. I'm fairly certain this supercomputer doesn't "understand" the emotionality of empathy. We humans have this capacity to learn to speak chinese in our infancy. Artificial intelligence is the product of years of research and development but still lack the capacity to express shared feelings.
  17. Information warfare is a controversial US national security issue. Also, don't forget that extremism (aka tyranny) take roots in the deliberate disinformation of the public.
  18. Mind wandering is the independent introspection of the subconscious system by our sensory neurons.
  19. Try to find a squirrel that can use the Internet... "Animals teach/learn science" You seems to confuse the animal kingdom with Homo sapiens.
  20. I'm not pretending that mirror neurons are the source of Love. The discovery of mirror neurons in human brains is probably critical to quantum biology. You talk like a physicalist who ignores the reality of non-physical mind/matter connections. Quantum biology is a emerging field in quantum mechanics. You better get used to it or quit. You cannot compare QM and Homeopathy. The latter is a pseudoscience while the former is based on General Relativity... Which camp are you in?
  21. I believe the so-called "limbic resonance" is correlated with optimal neural synchronicity. Emotional resonance energy (ie: Love/Empathy) is triggered from mirror neurons.
  22. The source of Love may be regulated by the shared neural activation (resonance) of our limbic system: See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limbic_resonance
  23. "If intelligence is emergent, then it's not computational. And vice versa." -wtf http://www.scienceforums.net/topic/102288-can-ai-create-models-of-the-universe/page-2#entry974369
