  1. Can terrorist attacks (or just terrorism) trigger our collective consciousness or is the medias (plural) brainwashing our thoughts with mental images about the violent nature of theses crimes? Is the term "terrorism" provoking a strong emotional response to awaken the "collective consciousness" ? How does the unity of consciousness reflect our collective mental states? Is this evidence of (quantum-like) brain-to-brain connectivity ?
  2. Sleep is essential to memory consolidation, according to recent research.
  3. Technically, I think this is called "neural representation". https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10753793
  4. This thread is about the potential anti-cancer effect of cannabis. Your comments are evidences of your utter ignorance on the subject.
  5. Oh dear, I'm sorry to hear you had a negative experience with weed. But since this is a science forum, your personal experience is irrelevant to the supporting evidences that cannabis can have a dramatic effect on cancer.
  6. I disagree. Cannabis has many medicinal properties and can potentially be used to treat brain cancer. Furthermore, marijuana smoking actually improves lung function: http://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/1104848 I suggest you stop talking nonsense...
  7. Curran et al Nat Rev Neurosci (GlaxoSmithKline) Skosnik et al. Biol Psychiatry (Pfizer) Note also that most studies you cited were not open access...
  8. Since the brain of a children isn't fully mature, imagination is probably essential to the development of the brain.
  9. THC kills cancer cells in vitro and in vivo. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4171598/
  10. Here you go: https://scholar.google.ca/scholar?hl=fr&q=aluminium+oxide+alzheimer&btnG=&lr= https://scholar.google.ca/scholar?q=aluminium+oxide+amyloid&btnG=&hl=fr&as_sdt=0%2C5
  11. Do not forget that many of theses studies were funded exclusively by pharmaceutical companies also selling synthetic drugs for schizophrenia. The political lobby and government-sponsored research on schizophrenia is a much more lucrative business than cannabis research. Fortunately, I hope the global legalization of marijuana will correct this by financing novel research on the medical applications of cannabis.
  12. Another poorly understood regulator of creativity is dopamine neurotransmission. Dopamine and neuregulin-1 are promoters of gamma oscillations in the hippocampus, a key organ in the regulation of creativity and synaptic plasticity.
  13. iNow, I do agree with you. However, please understand that the neuroscience of creativity is complex and that synaptic plasticity is probably correlated. You should as a minimum take a minute to consider this fully.
  14. Viruses can be effective vectors in biological warfare: The recent engineering of the Influenza A/H5N1 supervirus is a potential bioweapon.
  15. Personally, I prefer feeling happy rather than full of fear.
  16. OK. Let's just assume that synaptic plasticity is implicated in the neuroscience of creativity. And in case you missed it, Neuregulin 1 is a gene related to creativity AND synaptic plasticity.
  17. Actually, a search on google scholar produced 21100 results. Furthermore, the gene Neuregulin 1 (NRG1) appears implicated in the neuroscience of creativity and psychosis: There's supporting evidences that this gene polymorphism is connected to prefrontal synaptic plasticity and schizophrenia.
  18. Why is aripiprazole (Abilify) considered a third-generation atypical antipsychotic?
  19. If antipsychotics enhances AKT1 signaling, does it increases THC tolerance ?
  20. It appears the role of the AKT1 genotype has been implicated in THC tolerance. Interestingly, delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) may activate the AKT1 gene in vitro and in vivo. This pharmacological activation of the AKT1 gene by THC might explain why THC administration is neuroprotective in Alzheimer's disease.
  21. I think scientific imagination require a good dose of creativity to create experimental theories; To think like a scientist does not imply to ignore imagination for representing reality...
  22. Well, I found at least one research paper to support my claim.
  23. It is important to note that this phenomenon is termed "transient" hypofrontality: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12763007 Sleep related hallucinations are usually hypnagogic or hypnopompic. They are a parasomnia and totally unrelated to schizophrenia. http://www.sleepeducation.org/sleep-disorders-by-category/parasomnias/sleep-hallucinations/overview-facts
  24. I believe the neuroscience of creativity is best known as synaptic plasticity.
