brain on a table

i'm reading this really interesting article. 47 Mind-Blowing Psychology-Proven Facts You Should Know About Yourself. did you know that receiving a text or reading your twitter feed actually stimulates your dopamine system? "dopamine causes us to want, desire, seek out, and search" - which explains why a lot of people may feel "addicted" to social networking and their cell phones. there are some more excerpts on the memory and all the weird little things your brain does. a must read for psychology buffs.
