You Know It

Maybe it's the lack of caffeine, but reading this sentence (in an abstract for an article from a science journal) gave me a giggle fit. Which made me feel more awake, come to think of it.

"The interaction of opiate, cholinergic, glutarnatergic and (possibly) dopaminergic inputs in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) influencing a learned behavior is certainly a topic of great interest."

Certainly, of course. But then, only if the dopaminergic inputs are definitely an influence. Otherwise, it's boring as fuck.

oh god the reward pathway.

i was literally studying that exact pathway, then came to read your blog and take a break from studying.

it's haunting me.

also, i'm glad you had fun in this lovely city of montreal - too bad we didn't get a second to chat.
