resonance, again

My reaction against the "new-age" resonance theorists did
lead me to over-react.

The paper of  L. Stan Leung and Hui-Wen Yu,
     Theta-Frequency Resonance in Hippocampal CA1 Neurons
     In Vitro Demonstrated by Sinusoidal Current Injection,
     J Neurophysiol 79:1592-1596(1998)

is, indeed, a real physiological investigation of repetitive
activity in terms of physical resonance.  My apologies to the
authors.
