Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In the super master of the science meeting of European Neuroscience I tried to make the point that alcoholism is a Learned Behavior Disorder.. obviously I could not make the point to the great masters.. but I could do that with the students.. to get an idea what the masters of Neuroscience think...

Unfortunately, they just do not get it... rat receives alcohol, rat does this and that, I give the rat that and then he does that... no way to point them that the social behavior of rats is slightly different than humans. Fortunately, there seems to be that much money into it, that eventually something can come make which can be useful regarding the physical drive..or not. As far as it goes I guess alcoholics will have to unlearn the behavior the standard way.. with a majority of people visiting people who do no have any idea of anthropology and rarely gets what "Learned behavior" means.. with a little bit of luck they can try someone smart who can help.

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
