You told me what they are not but not what they are, you told less than half thes tory, golfed one shot out of par. Started the hole but didnt finish it. I could go on.

Can you see a star from where you are ? I can see one out the crack in the curtain.

it's not bad! i'm just sure there's gotta be some better ones.. (not that i have a fucking clue where they are, so i will shutup and disappear now)

You would be amazed at how hard it has been to find a really good top-to-bottom description of basic neuron function. If you can find one, I can promise multiple promotes and qualities and endless thanks!

What text(s) would you recommend?

Actually, there is an enormous literature on persuasion, argument, attitude change, etc. Social psychologists love that stuff. You should look into the psychology of persuasion, it's fascinating -- but prepare to be depressed.

As to your 'mental states', I doubt it's black and white. I'd say it's a continuum as per jonny's comments, and shifts along this continuum are due to attending — or not attending — to certain cues at certain times that change the way you argue.

Hey - do you have any interest in taking the Brain channel? Or did I already ask you that once before? I don't know of any other VS users with a significant background or interest in brain science that might want the channel. I barely have time to visit VS on occasion now, much less try to properly maintain a channel.

[edit] I'm pretty sure that dag and lucky would go for it despite the gold star. You've been around and contributed too much.

Admittedly, it's not the clearest graphic, but it's a pretty decent description of the mechanics of depolarization. It's part of a series that is assumed to be watched in order. I wanted to make one post with a playlist of them, but couldn't find enough of them to justify it. I did post of a couple of the others in the series (shown in related posts). This was also shortly after I had started the brain channel and I was trying to get a decent base of videos as examples of the kind of content I was looking for. Sadly, that didn't pan out too well.In reply to this comment by berticus:
