We found that the cortex, via cortico-lateral-amygdala somatostatin neurons (CLA-SOM), has a direct inhibitory influence on the output of the LA principal neurons. Our results define a CLA long-range inhibitory circuit (CLA-SOM inhibitory projections → LA principal neurons) underlying the control of spike timing/generation in LA and LA–AC projecting neurons, and attributes a specific function to a genetically defined type of cortical long-range GABAergic neurons in CLA communication. SIGNIFICANCE STATEMENT It is very well established that cortical auditory inputs to the lateral amygdala are exclusively excitatory and that cortico-amygdala neuronal activity has been shown to be involved in sound-driven aversive/fear behavior. Here, for the first time, we show that the lateral amygdala receives long-range GABAergic projection from the auditory cortex and these form direct monosynaptic inhibitory connections onto lateral amygdala principal neurons. Our results define a cellular basis for…

After all, we’ve all been eating food for our whole lives, haven’t we? But there are certain foods that are unhealthy, and it’s not always obvious which ones they are.

Alcoholism is a medical condition. The brain receptors are very susceptible to alcohol in some people. Her father is in jail because he could not control his impulses. Most of this results from damage in the frontal lobes of the brain, either by genetics or drugs. When the youthful brain is growing, chemicals inhibit its bio-development. Yes, drinking and drugs are a choice but like an avalanche, once it starts it takes all down in front of it. People should not imitate this young girl but try to moderate the use of chemicals. It is ironic, that this generation, with medical advances could live to be 200 or 300 years; and do they have a lot to offer in the way of compassion, love and global changing ideas. Creativity is subdued with this behavior; rehab is a matter of attitude rather than place.
So do  you believe that 1.  lifestyle, 2. genetics 3. food and chemicals are what age and damage our bodies, minds and spirits

Low sulphur problems <500ppm diesels cars and trucks are causing poor mileage, swelling of fuel pump seals and other mechanical problems that could break our truck fleets in mid accelerations on the highway and bottleneck all freight shipments in the us. Austrialia has covered the problem and suggests switching to B100 (biofuel). The fuel giants are not warning us on this problem I would be glad to write an op-ed piece. I, as a mediator, have had a few cases on this issue. I own a diesel, was a former safety engineer in detroit and was actually trained as an auto mechanic in trade school in the 60's. I have a great interest, not to mention my love affair with diesels since 1974. kent norton #nortonThink
