> Last week I posted a message about this article about neuroscience findings of brain laterality and emotions. I found the site for the online version, in case anyone is interested.

This subject is one of deep personal interest as
I've experienced a number of lateralized physical
symptoms during various mood/anxiety states. I
would often mention this to my doc hoping it would
somehow help hium specify what was going on in my
particular case, but he usually shrugged them
off. Of course he isn't a researcher and the
literature is not very developed on this topic

One article I read (in PUBMED somewhere) talked
about a sticky hemispherical switch for bipolar
people. They compared some kind of eye reaction
latency between bipolar and normals, apparently
finding some significant differences in how the
brain processes certain stimuli. I think this
topic will emerge as a major player in mood
disorders, even if it is a secondary symptom of
the disorder and not the cause.
