Perhaps someone in academia can assist me to locate the "full article" of
the "snippet" I mention below?

I read very recently, in a small regional newspaper in those "snippets" type
columns, that [a Univ. of Texas team had published an article in the latest
"American Journal of Psychiatry" showing that blood rushes constantly
between the "thinking" and "emtional" regions of the brain]. That's all I
picked up while scanning the paper, but it stuck sufficiently to know I want
to read the full article ASAP.

Seems like a "mind over matter" tug-of-war, using blood as a carrier, that
invariably results in some physical response, depending on which "side" won.
Anyway I'm really keen to locate the article.

Now, if one gets really imaginative and associates work being done in France
by that "debunked" biologist (I cannot recall offhand the URL or find the
bookmark) trying to prove that water holds memory or something close to
that, (and seems to be making some progress and wants other labs to repeat
the experiments and share data) and considers the high water content of
blood, one has to have some fun pondering what else blood is made of, and
why, and how it interacts with the hardware of the brain itself. etc. etc.

I'm pretty sure these things can be tested by existing recording & measuring
technologies .. just a case of thinking up the right questions.
