Misc links about brains

Parasites brainwash grasshoppers into death dive - Shows that depression and suicide (at least in grasshoppers) can have a strong biochemical cause

Autism has multiple genetic types - I could have told you that. :) My movement disorder myclonic dystonia has multiple genetic types. The only type identified so far responds to alcohol. Mine doesn't. "Good thing too." says my dad.

Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?

And it figures I'm Janeway, because she's based on Katherine Hepburn who went to my alma mater Bryn Mawr.
Capt Kathryn Janeway
You scored 19 Daring, 68 Intellect, and 77 Compassion!
Kathryn Janeway was the Captain of the USS Voyager, thrown into the furthest reaches of the Delta Quadrant, decades of travel from Earth.

Scoring a Kathryn Janeway shows you've got a lot of Brains and Heart, which balances the riskier captains like Kirk.

This test tracked 3 variables. How the score compared to the other people's:
Higher than 2% on Daring
Higher than 74% on Intellect
Higher than 90% on Compassion

Great post. I am not surprised about the grasshoppers. Well, maybe I am amazed, but it certainly fits my experience.

I try not to take my emotions too serious ly cause they come and go.

I sent that link to a bunch of folks. Thanks!

You're welcome, John! And welcome too! I don't think I welcomed you before. :)
