Human Exceptionalism Claims, from Yale and Kavli Inst. – of course

These claims seem contradicted by other experiments in motor control but here it is below.  Yale Seems firmly in the human exceptionalism camp as an institution and Kavli Institute funding the same.  The money would seem better spent understanding how human brain > behavior processes are similar to other animals and thus much easier to […]

“Since 2002, a series of ten such studies have reported that individuals who used cannabis at the baseline evaluation had a greater risk of subsequently developing psychotic symptoms and indeed full-blown schizophrenia than non-users. “

Although I did make a […]

How Brain Science is Destroying Economics, Marketing, Biz and Just About Everything Else We Believe/Think
