Favorite conversations in chat


I have some cool conversations at times on here. They make good stories and would be cool to write them down here, kind of like a book with a collection of memories, so people can enjoy them.


I think I’ll post more later, but here’s one to start. I was talking to KK and others today, because I made a mistake with a merger. Turns out it was a glial cell (they really look part of the neuron). That turned into a whole conversation about how we don’t much about glial cells and their contributions to thought outside of strengthening cell signals. Maybe one day, we’ll learn more and trace glial cells to discover their functions in the brain and if they contribute to thought independently from other neurons (such as their own glial neural network or something http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/neuroscience/braincells/Astrocyte.jpg).
