  1. THC kills cancer cells in vitro and in vivo.



    Several preclinical studies suggest that Δ9-THC, other naturally occurring cannabinoids, synthetic cannabinoid agonists and endocannabinoids have anti-cancer effects in vitro against lung carcinoma, gliomas, thyroid epithelioma, lymphoma, skin carcinoma, uterine carcinoma, breast cancer, prostate carcinoma, pancreatic cancer and neuroblastoma [4]. These findings were also supported by in vivo studies and the majority of effects of cannabinoids are mediated via CB1 and CB2.



  2. 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.

  3. I caught a cold from my co worker, is that considered a bio weapon, I was sick for three days. What other types of bio weapons are there?


    Viruses can be effective vectors in biological warfare: The recent engineering of the Influenza A/H5N1 supervirus is a potential bioweapon.

  4. Your search results do not support your claim. The neuroscience of creativity overlaps with the study of synaptic plasticity, but your conflation of them is why you're mistaken. They are not the same thing and the neuroscience of creativity is NOT best known as synaptic plasticity. Stop talking bollocks.


    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.

  5. "Best known" and "found ONE research paper." Perhaps you see the flaw in your argument?


    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.

  6. Actually, the dreaming brain appears and behaves much like that of a schizophrenic, which are both prominently characterized by low prefrontal activation (hypofrontality). However, the specifics of what causes this low prefrontal activation between the dreaming and schizophrenic brain may be distinct.


    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

  7. Scientific imagination is critical to develop new theories based on the evidences of the beauty of nature. It is an artistic talent to recognize the capacity of the mind to illustrate scientific discoveries into abstract models through experimentation and observation. The artistic value of an "experimentation" should be defined as the mind power (creativity) to understand the logicality of nature.
