OK, fine, don't respond to requests for citations then.  If somebody else
wants to respond, it will likely be of interest to the original poster as well
as many other people.
If this group were swamped by hundreds of knucklehead posts everyday, you might
have a point.   But I can't believe the arrogance of people getting bent out
of shape over the occasional naive request for info.  Just ignore it, why
create an intimidating, unfriendly environment?


ps.  I just have a personal, casual interest in neuroscience, enjoy learning
a bit from the posts.
