Microglial activation in the PFC

  • Activation of the microglia by aluminium oxide disrupt the cytokine/neurotrophin balance.
  • Possible role of microglia-derived BDNF signaling on intracellular Ca2+ elevation? [1]

Nanotoxicity of fine particulate matter (PM2.5)

  • Fly-ash particulate matter includes:
    • aluminium oxide
    • silicon dioxide
    • titanium dioxide
    • barium oxide
    • iron oxide
    • cadmium
    • arsenic
    • dimethyl sulfate and monomethyl sulfate[2]
  • Exposure to coal fly ash is nanotoxic and may cause neuroinflammation via oxidative stress production. [3]
  • Coal fly ash is a source of particulate matter.
  • Fine particulate matter (PM2.5) exposure may induce chronic COPD pathogenesis.[4]



Phenomenology of consciousness

The brain is not the source of consciousness:

Intrinsic awareness (IA):

Ubiquity of consciousness:

Political manipulations of psychiatry

Sluggish schizophrenia

Retrograde signaling

Glycinergic neurotransmission trafficking

Allosteric modulation of glycine receptors by endocannabinoids

  • THC and anandamide may modulates synaptogenesis in the retina and brain through glycinergic transmission [5]
  • Intracellular DHA delivery facilitate glutamatergic NMDA receptor function in the presence of glycine [6]
  • THC and anandamide enhance NMDA-dependent LTP through glycine receptor activation

CB1-induced cholinergic neurotransmission

  • Hypothalamic POMC neurons promote CB1-induced feeding [7]
  • Adenosine antagonist (caffeine) potentiate corticostriatal neurotransmission (connectivity) through presynaptic CB1 receptor activation. [8]
  • Monoamine oxidase inhibition affects cannabinoid-induced synaptogenesis. [9]

Intracellular CB1/BDNF signaling

  • CB1 receptor activation may induce corticostriatal neuroprotection through a PI3K/Akt/mTORC1/BDNF pathway. [10]

Pineal gland

  • Dopamine receptors in the pineal gland may control melatonin production via anandamide trafficking? [11][12]

Social neuroscience of cannabis smoking

Synaptic hypercomputation

Biological utilization of quantum non-locality in microtubules:

Biophotonic non-locality of tubulin heterodimer:

  • The non-local (quantum) nature of biophotonic energy may require ultra-fast optical communication channels in MTs to potentiate a presynaptic action potential into a visible waveform! (Reference needed)
  • Is the tubulin dipole moment phase-dependent? (Reference needed)
