    Howdy. My main interests here will be theoretical physics, but my graduate training was in biochemistry, my professional career has mostly been systems neuroscience (including computational models of cerebral cortical circuits), I've had invited articles published on medical ethics and political economy, as well as a book on the latter, published by a private foundation. I also have had essays published on the questions of free will vs. determinism, and the criminal justice system, prison system and capital punishment. So, I'm a bit of a dilettante.

    Welcome to the forums.

    I'm keen on hearing about some of your work and insights on the processes.

    Sorry, Scubbydoo1, but my professional work has been mostly bottom-up, nuts-and-bolts stuff about how inhibitory and excitatory neurons work together in circuits to transform incoming sensory input - mostly to have the brain respond to changes in the environment. Nothing very sexy about it - no "theory of mind" or understanding of how consciousness arises from inanimate matter.
