Without mutually stimulating interactions, people and neurons wither and die.” In many ways, I think this should be required reading for pundits and political and economic theorists, at least in the U.S. Too often these talk...

Plant Isoprenoids: A General Overview
Borderline personality disorder (BPD) was first described 75 years ago (Stern, 1938), but only became accepted in the classification of mental disorders decades later (American Psychiatric Association, 1980); but it was at that point that research on the disorder took off.
