Why do OCD Brains Have Less Limbic Activation yet Involve Fear?

Well that doesn’t tell you of life. I get stuck, there’s so many paths to follow that backtracking takes days and then I find new trees to explore. If only those trees could talk. I think OCD is where the brain rebounds off the amygdala because it doesn’t activate the limbic system in order to complete its reactions.We’ve been a bit through this before. People … Continue reading Why do OCD Brains Have Less Limbic Activation yet Involve Fear?

Neuroscience Hypothesis of Why You Can’t Sleep: Neurogenesis vs Memory

Mindbursting Night I was blissing out in bursts of thought until 2 in the morning last night. For the average human that’s probably not a startle, but I’m one of those human animals that has a sleep cycle that I’ve stuck to most of my life.

Then I … Continue reading Losing RL Names to Become a Cavewoman Huntress
