hi Cynthia. yep, that's moi. after recieving a bachelor with honors degree in chemistry, i continued on in search of the holy grail (found more naughty bits - "monty python" humor). as a graduate research associate of neuroscience, my research focused in fetal tissue transplantation as a potential treatment for parkinsonian. now, we use neural stem cell lines, instead of neural tissue from fetal sources.

ironically, years later, my manic depression knocked the stuffing out of me. you know the saying, "physician heal thyself"? i'm my own frankenstein! it appears that the area of research, in which i was involved, will be my personal salvation. it seems a very convincing argument that neural stem cell lines can be used in a variety of neurological disorders, as per reams of research papers i've studied and reread (just because i like to read all the time).

to elizabeth:
i'm one of the lucky mad scientists. learning has never been overwhelming or difficult for me. so, i've had much time for greater study and research loads (and a fun life) than most others. although, i'm currently plagued with word finding difficulty, i'm still powerfully capable of synthesizing, both, complex and abstract information.

the bipolar-1 psychotic features i've experienced, have never explored the realms of science, as of yet (knock on computer desk). actually, one delusion had me sure that i was on the set of "saturday night live" (of all nonrealities, why there? i don't know. i never even watch the program) I was in an ER at the infamous moment, when i stood up and called out, "live from new york, it's saturday night!" LOL...weird but true.

but, my achilles heel has been the periods of disabling bipolar depression and mania. fortunately, the episodes have been separated by years of intense energy and great mental capacity. LOL...but, it's like someone slipped me a potion that induced persona switching between the dr. genius and ms. mental midget. weird but true.

i'll be back with some juicy research info. just got my computer up and running after it crashed and burned. fortunately, i have back up copies of the info on diskette.

going swimming now... :)

> Hi Nancy,
> Aren't you the mad scientist? Just the kind of person I like to keep in touch with. No one is smarter than a crazy scientist. Science doesn't interest me, but god, getting better does. Yes, keep fishing and let me and, probably a collective bulletin board, US informed of your catches of the day. I'm ticking off that little box that says 'notify me of later follow-ups to this thread' now. You just gave me quite a bit of hope.
> Thanks,
