comment Is being vegan related to particular personality traits?
This is a bit like saying because one has chosen to buy a red car, that one must have some urge to drive fast and recklessly. In other words, preferences and lifestyle choices don't automatically reflect any sort of pathology. I think you need to do some research on your own to see whether there's even an ounce of correlation there, which I'm not sure that you will find any. This is just idle speculation on your part.

comment Theoretical limit to the use of mental faculty of the brain
@draks That I'm not sure about. You can find the article through it's DOI, at dx.doi.org/10.1002/glia.22341. J Neurosci only has 1 year moratorium before articles become open-access, so there's probably a wealth of related articles about this that are open at this point.

comment How do ligands bind to and release from receptors?
@ChristianHummeluhr I've been pretty busy over the last couple of years. I can't promise I will be able to answer at this time, but I think questions like these should be "grandfathered" in. While I respect and admire the work that you've put into the site thus far, the Area 51 numbers aren't everything.
