Is up! And we're in it. Two posts on Opponent-Process theory! I highly recommend this edition, there's an entire section on addiction, including an article on the addictive potential of marijuana, and another on the myth of dopamine and pleasure (ain't pleasure, it's...salience...sort of...of value-related stimuli).

Also, check out Juniorprof today, great post up on chronic pain, from someone who knows pain.
And finally, I'm sure you've all heard about Ida to death, I know I have. But Laelaps has a GREAT Op-Ed on it that's just come out in the Times!!! And he's been misquoted by the Discovery Institute! That's a sign you've made the big-time. 🙂
