    Just went to Ask.com and got lots of responses. Check there to see if there is info for what you need. Good luck.:spin:

    whatever it is, it's on the neuronal/axonal/gaba levels....beats the dickens out of me.
    good luck!

    My Google is broke lol.

    I have a sliver of an idea, along the line of leslie's post--- but it appears to be waaay over my head (at least the articles I've found on it).

    As it applies to psych? I'm wondering if it's something to do with neurotransmitters and dendrites and other stuff my feeble brain can't wrap around tonight.

    Now I have a headache. A perisomatic response to this thread, perhaps?
