If I could afford to, I'd pursue my hypothesis, stated in my prior
two posts in this thread, by looking up, and reading:
Neuroendocrinol Lett 2002 Oct-Dec;23(5-6):442 Related Articles, Links
BOOK REVIEW: Csilla Ruzsas and Bela Mess "Maturation and Aging of
Neuroendocrine Functions. The role of monoaminergic neurons and of
the pineal gland".
Institute of Experimental Endocrinology, Humboldt University Medical
School (Charite), Berlin, Germany.
PMID: 12500168 [PubMed - in process]
I found, on PubMed, a lot of other "good-starting-olace" refs with
respect to the hypothesis.
My old method was to look-up, read them, read selected refs in their
bibliographies, continuously 'whittling'.
Guess, these days, I'm either 'too old' or too poor for my old method

| Yeah. 'Tortured' routes are one of the hallmarks I look for when

| Cheers, John, ken
