“Ubiquitous distribution, excitotoxicity, and feeding behavior,” opened Bryan W. Brickner: “no, not March Madness ~ it’s cannabinoids.”
Brickner, part of Publius and The Cannabis Papers: A citizen’s guide to cannabinoids (2011), utilizes 2014 research from the National Institutes of Health (PubMed) and notes several cannabinoid system (CS) findings, to include: the ubiquitous distribution of cannabinoid receptors as therapeutic relief for osteoarthritis; cannabinoid signaling and numerous concomitant pathological processes, including neuroinflammation, excitotoxicity, mitochondrial dysfunction, and oxidative stress; and CS regulation of feeding behavior through a modulatory action on different neurotransmitter systems, including the dopaminergic system.
Homeostasis highlights Indiscernible Cannabinoid Science ~ Publius’ March 2014 Roundup. Seven recent PubMed articles on the cannabinoid, vanilloid, neurological, dopamine, visual, skeletal, and endocrine systems are the focus of the new posting on the Bryan William Brickner Blog.
“Regulating food behavior via cannabinoids,” Brickner commented, “has entered the debate; that the CS modulates diet via our neurotransmitter systems, such as dopamine, that’s not debatable.”
“Homeostasis is stability,” continued Brickner, “it’s the process by which we maintain ourselves in response to change. How one’s CS is functioning and its maintenance are basic to health.”
“We’ll be a healthier America soon,” offered Brickner, “once we understand the CS.”
Brickner has a 1997 political science doctorate from Purdue University and is the author of several political theory books, to include The Promise Keepers: Politics and Promises (1999) and The Book of the Is: A book on bridges (2013). The Bryan William Brickner Blog is an ongoing resource for the political science of constitutions and the biological science of cannabinoids.
