Neuroscience of Inebriation: Happy St. Patrick’s Day! :)

Neuroscience of Inebriation: Happy St. Patrick’s Day! πŸ™‚

“There’s a girl in the next seat who I didn’t think that sweet

But after a few drinks I want to marry her

I guess it’s not surprising, my dopamine is rising

And my glutamate receptors are all shot

I’d surely be bemoaning all the extra serotonin

But my judgment is impaired and my confidence is not

Allosteric modulation

No Long Term Potentiation

Hastens my inebriation

Give me a beer!”

    Given the nerdfest that is G+, it turns out that pretty much everyone in my science circle had already posted the Biologist’s Beer Song (Rich Pollett at 12:05 am EST!; Click on check ripples to the top right of this post). So, kudos to Nancy RΓͺgo for finding us a nerdy drinking song that has not yet made the rounds! Jedi Drinking Song
