comment What causes laughter?
I don't have time to write up an answer right now, but you should check out the book "Inside Jokes" (amazon.com/Inside-Jokes-Using-Humor-Reverse-Engineer/dp/…). I think you will find it highly interesting given your questions.

So, you mean that norepinephrine consticts the nasal vasculature? My intuition was that they got broader, thereby leaving more room for air to pass through.

Well, the distinction I'm really after is one situation where you either can treat the person with medicines and one situation where you only need to change the external circumstances for the person.

comment Do victims of parental abuse and neglect become abusive or neglectful parents?
And further, I would say that there isn't any solid research proving that parenting style causes any long lasting behavior in children. Most studies doesn't include genetic factors. See for example faculty.weber.edu/eamsel/Classes/Child%203000/Lectures/…

comment Is there a random walk theory that can account for situations with more than two choices?
Yes, I'm counting time as one dimension (ranging from 0 to infinity on the x axis) and the current evidence as one dimension (ranging from minus infinity to plus infinity on the y axis).
