 This site has now been added to
 http://www.scn.org/~mentifex/webcyc.html#neuroscience and I would
 like to add it to
 http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Agora/7256/webcyc.html but I seem
 to have reached a GeoCities editabl-file limit with my 29,810 bytes.
 Does anyone know how to continue editing the HTML beyond 29K? Thanks
