Not entirely sure what you mean; I'm racial-category white, but not cartoon-colour white if that clarifies things at all.

I mean you probably look like you fell into a vat of radioactive white out.

HaHa, a bit like The Joker then! No, if anything, I've fallen into Capt. Beefheart's category; "Everybody's colored, otherwise you'd see through them."

Exactly my thoughts. You're a nerd btw.

I used to have long hair, completely different look.

I'll go as far back as I can. Basically, brains are made of neurons and neurons are cells, which means they have a "skin" (the membrane) and some internal components. In the membrane, there are channels that allow ions to pass selectively through - and the ion concentration from inside the cell to outside the cell is different (so, for instance, there will be more sodium outside of the cell than inside). This causes two forces - first the "force" of diffusion - soluble particles in a water solution will spread out until they are uniform through the whole container. But because these are ions, they are also charged, so there is an associated electrical force. The negotiation between these two forces is what leads to the "action" potential. A spike of electrical activity that travels down neurons as ions flood in and out of the neuron. And these action potentials are what carry signals around the brain so that organsims can sense things and respond to them.

No, I'm just trying to construct a mathematical model of it for academic purposes. The way it functions is not captured in any canonical models, but the behavior it exhibits is observable in other neurons (like let down reflex in breastfeeding mammals, birth contractions, and even some cognitive processes) and, as we develop technologies that stimulate, inhibit, or entrain brain regions to overcome diseases, having mathematical models of neural dynamics will help the control systems side of things.

That's more like it! Because of your music, I thought you'd be a new-generation hippy wearing one of those grunge shirts.

^ Thanks, that was understandable, and the precise physical causes of thoughts and sensations is certainly an intriguing area of study.

Does his picture really offend you that much? Or did your drunken shit-post bounce off the rim of the garbage can you were aiming for, and landed here by accident?

Yeah it's been three days since anyone even posted in this thread, and way longer since Frownland did.
