OK. I’m a leftie. Not only in politics, but in handedness. And, just like my politics are not all one-sided (fiscal conservative, policy liberal and then some), my handedness is even (ambidextrous). And, therein lies the rub.
I reported the other day that by sheer happenstance, we have found that taking blood pressure medicine helps alleviate PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) episodes. The medicine suppresses norepinephrine secretion, which then affords the brain the capability to process the negative experiences. It turns out that effecting a stellate ganglion block (SGB) may have merit as a treatment.
So, you’re taking the plunge in 2012. You will go off on your own. At the very least, you’ll be a solopreneur- but you may have aspirations to start a true enterprise and, therefore, become an entrepreneur. It’s not just a a business plan and a rolodex, you’ll need, however.

If you’ve been reading this blog (What? You haven’t? Shame on you!), then you know I often refer to fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) experiments. The fMRI had its genesis at Mass General in 1991- when giant magnetics afforded us the ability to visualize activity in the brain. (This final result relied on the finding by Seiji Ogawa at Bell Labs that determined blood-oxygen-level dependence, the MRI contrast of blood deoxyhemoglobin [oxygen depleted red blood cells].)
