Subject: More Co2 = less brains?
What are the effects on people of increased atmospheric Co2?
Obviously, more atmospheric Co2 means less O2 available as
percentages of total gases. I remember reading, quite some
time ago, that as the Co2 percentage goes up, the cognitive
abilities of man are decreased.
Does anyone know of any studies in this reguard?
I believe you are correct. But if you have less O2 then your
levels of CO may be higher. CO is a neurotransmitter.
It might increase associative learning?
