    Unstoppable Road to Hyperconnectivity: Blame It On Opiates!

    Advertisement



    Interesting, to say the least. Makes you wonder ...

    Blame it on opiates! Some recent findings by the neuroscientist Irving Biederman show that our compulsive use of our Blackberry's is due to opiates which aggregate in our cortex and provide instant gratification to our insatiable hunger for information. We get a high when new insights but lower level of opiates are released for information we already have. Hyperconnectivity and hyperinformation unstoppable?

    Uh...ok...sounds like the result of too many Cafe Lattes to me. To have opiate aggregation one must first...(Drum roll)...take opiates. The body does not produce exogenous substances- endorphins yes, opiates no. Anymore the title 'scientist' is being to loosely used. When I was 6 years old, I had a science kit....

    Yeah, the originally linked article took too much out of context. But if you go to the link and read through, you'll see a link to another article - http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/...,2654971.story - which makes a lot more sense. The key word is opioids, not opiates.

    "The explanation involves opioids, one of many neurotransmitters -- which are molecules that the neurons in our brain release to activate or inhibit other neighboring neurons. The effect of opioids is pleasurable. In fact, the same neural receptors are involved in the high we get from opiate drugs, such as heroin or morphine."
