I just audited this lecture series. It was a pleasure and a privilege to be able to do so. The two missing lectures from this series, Depression and Religion, are also on the web you just have to search for them.

I've wanted study at Stanford for over thirty years and now the University along with Prof. Sapolsky has made that possible for me as well as for anyone else willing to invest the time and effort.

It was definitely worth the wait!

Nice!

In the introduction Sapolsky mentions that menstruation, brain tumors, junk food and anabolic steroids have each been used as a defense for murder.

They all decrease cerebral circulation as well. 'Increasing cerebral artery tone' refers to* the muscles responsible for vasoconstriction, right?
