comment Anti-psychotic medication withdrawal-induced psychosis
Can you specify which class of DA antagonists? Or even a specific drug. Typical antipsychotics also bind to histamine and acetylcholine receptors. This binding influences perception.

comment Anti-psychotic medication withdrawal-induced psychosis
When you say non-psychotic do you mean not diagnosed with a psychotic disorder? With no psych issues, psychotic or otherwise ever? No schizotypal personality disorder? Nothing that suggests unmasking rather than creation...

Thanks. Let's see if I can keep it up this time. Who would have thought a physician-scientist would be so busy?

There is a psychological component. Not all patients know the biology.

comment Is there a better way to describe brain activity than EEG “brain waves”
On people, it's usually done on neurosurgical patients who have electrodes implanted for intractable epilepsy, Parkinson's, psych disorders. They have in animals and do, at a few med centers, flexible electrodes that record a signal. Wireless can't transmit at high enough frequencies to send spike data in real time. The electrodes also have low enough impedance to pick up only a few neurons. (In part because MDs know more about what to do with EEGs and spikes are used for intraoperative localization.)
