     Todd Stark mentioned something about Kandel's work on learning
pathways in Aplysia Californica.  If memory serves me, I believe
the specific transmitter he found to be involved was serotonin,
released from axo-axonic synapses.  Hmmm.  Coincidentally or not,
this has been the transmitter most frequently associated with
mystical experiences in humans...
