Subject: SCI.CRYONICS - National Geographic June 1995 - BRAIN

The latest National Geographic's cover story is the Brain.

Excellent 40-page article, clear diagrams, illustrative interviews and 
anecdotes, speculative stuff like:

{"Neuropeptides are in your heart too," she (Candace Pert, former 
NIH pharmacologist who now heads her own research firm) says.  "Experiments 
show that the spleen, thymus, bone marrow, lymph glands, and dorsal horn of 
the spine also produce neuropeptides."  Neuropeptides, she says, even 
come from the stomach, giving new validity to the expression "gut feeling".

The mind is not only in the brain, Pert argues.  It is also in the flow 
of neurocommunicators throughout the brain, glands, and immune system.}

Of interest to the neuro vs whole-body discussion?
