You Konstantin have provide me with some of the rare breaths of fresh air 
here in bionet.neuroscience.

Thanks for visiting!

Here is my 'concEPTually' compressed position of (a perversely septic 
humored ;->) understanding (explained in brief):

Given that one looks from far enough above, from different angles, zooms in 
and out as required, and is both perceptive and realistic enough to not 
demand a *too complete* understanding (or a too finely dotted or densely 
scientifically plotted picture) of how lifetime environmental features and 
influences affect and interact with the biochemistry of individuals [to 
cause the differences between ill and a well (neuropsychophysiologically and 
'physically' so) human individuals/relationships/societies], then a 
comprehensive enough 'explanatory picture' that both satisfies and can be a 
guide for further scientific exploration [for further new details and 
insights into this (and other) aspect of "What Is going on"] is already 
possible to achieve.

I know (but will here not try to explain how) that, for a balanced  picture 
of us people, the most lacking (or too faint and difuse) focus of mainstream 
scientific attention is the one that looks into how different kinds of 
trauma [*slow* as well as tardy traumas - i.e. a spectrum of lifetime 
situations the survival of which require ("implore") that a synaptic (hence 
possibly  highly specific) "hibernation" is induced within the nervous 
system (or within what I only half-jokingly refer to as the "Actention 
Selection System") of individuals who are "in" such situations] are stored 
and how they thereafter insidiously influence the psychological and somatic 
development, physiology and behavior of individuals.

Janov calls such memories "primal pain".

I have had fun by contriving, or playing with words to arrive at, the 
acronym CURSES for the same type of memories.

[Actually, I have made sure I can describe such memories and how they become 
as insidious as they are, by saying that: What puts a "'Conditioned-in' 
Unconsciously Remembered Stressors, Effecting Symtoms" the "Actention 
Selection System" of individuals are happenstances that causes them to end 
up in a "Specific Hibernation Imploring Type Situations".]

With best wishes and regards,
