Sir Charles Scott Sherrington is one of my science heroes, so I'm featuring him on my cogsci profile. He is often credited with coining the word "synapse."

comment Getting analysis of changes in MY brain upon cannabis consumption
I don't really see a question here. For a researcher that's studying aspects of "cannabis consumption", I'm sure they'd be happy to have you as long as you didn't fall under any of the exclusion criteria. For this type of study recruitment, check in the newspaper of cities that have a well-known teaching hospital.

I'm thinking an NIH grant is in the works for this.

comment Is there a correlation between brain size and amount of sleep?
It is welcome on either site but not both. It's just inconsiderate to do so, even if it is not formally against the rules. You end up with a duplication of efforts and that's not fair. Simply alter what you are asking on one or the other so they are addressing the issue from different perspectives and you're golden. You can play your "the rules don't apply to me" card if you'd like, but it's not going to win over anyone here.

The de facto rule is to only post on one site at a time. If you asked about two different angles, it would be one thing, but you copied the question verbatim. That is discouraged.

Please do not cross-post your question. I have recommended that the one on Biology be closed.

comment How does dopamine increasing medication affect the brain?
Can you be more specific about which "dopamine-based" medication that you are talking about? Different medication classes are going to have different pharmacodynamics.
