Mystic Economics <- Is Pluralistic Ignorance the same as the sum of Pluralism and Ignorance?

Neuro-Imaging of Convoluted & Political Minds 
Abstract: 
Not much is known in the literature about the functioning of political minds and/or convoluted minds especially in the corporate, media and academic world in addition to politics, and also how their minds work during decision-making process. It would be helpful to know how these minds think, and why they think that way in order to devise and implement strategies for improving optimal decisions taking all the stakeholders into account. This effort would also align with President Obama's long-term brain mapping initiative.

Nature or Nurture - Part II

Abstract

Prof. James Fallon (Emeritus, UCI) not to be confused for the talk show host, a highly successful neuroscientist, self-discovered that his brain features are similar to that of a psychopath, and believes that his protected childhood was instrumental in helping him to lead a normal life. Moreover, after this finding, Dr. Fallon is taking conscious efforts to adapt to the environment while exercising free will to nullify even the trace mental traits/characteristics of psychopathy. 

On the contrary, Dr. Kiehl has shown para-limbic system dysfunction being connected to psychopathy, and believes that traits such as, disinhibition/excessive boldness, lack of empathy and accountability, not much self-control that are coming out of psychopathy needs to be considered as potential psychological shortcomings while adjudicating judicial verdicts. 

If these were two diverging thoughts on this topic, it will also be interesting to determine whether corporate, media, and political psychopaths were born with not much empathy or the environment surrounded by like-minded individuals driven solely by far-fetched ambitions, excessive bonuses, constant backstabbing, and/or overly exposure to low morale and distasteful working conditions influence the wiring of the brain towards psychopathy, and other brain disorders. 

A detailed analysis engulfing questions revolving around these topics will be presented in this article.

Acetaminophen vs Aspirin vs NSAIDS vs Opioids vs Local Anaesthetics & Epidurals (Method of Drug Action <- What do we know?)

Abstract: Acetaminophen was a serendipitous finding that is still utilized as a pain-reliever. Now that we are getting to know more about the science of pain, and its connection to brain triggers, it is important to revisit the topic of drug action in the area of pain-killers (analgesics), antipyretics. For a drug such as, acetaminophen, being in use for more than 100 years, we still have not much information on the mode of drug action. Going by the basic chemistry of acetaminophen, and with researchers gradually gaining understanding in the area of neuroscience, there could be a potential connection of a drug such as, acetaminophen, and its biological modification with the area of neuroscience. This article will include a thorough analysis capturing the potential connection between neuroscience, and the mode of drug action for analgesics and anti-pyretics.

Bipolar Disorder
Abstract: There was a recent article sharing concerns about reproducibility of psychological results. If that were the case, and if we were all mere players in this world stage, how do we know who really has bipolar disorder or other psychological/psychiatric issues?
