I was reading your about me section and saw where you had done some kind of research into Parkinson's and was wondering about it. My grandfather has it.

After wandering into your profile, I read that you are studying neuropsychology, and about emotions of musicians.
I used to be in a band for four years during high school . Though now a landscape architect, I have to say that my musical years back in those days influenced my emotions and personality immensely. I still play leisurely sometimes, and it works wonders creating positive emotions.

Keep up with your research! Hope it will bring lots of good.

i Like your about me. i was reading it. i Like to study the mind or brain too. Why do u ask, well i have, Multiple personality disorder, because my brain did not develop the same connections it should have.
But it became aLot more then just a way to fix my probLems and now i Love the topic of the mind and how your brain works + the souL that some say is a cluster of cells in the brain and when u die the cells disappear. i think there was even a test don for that by weighing a person just B4 and right after they die. (the wait gos down mysteriously)

About Nora!

I've been a member of Gaia since July of 2003. I worked for Gaia as a moderator and then admin from 2004 till the end of 2010, and now I am focused full time on finishing my doctorate. Working for Gaia was a fascinating and educational experience, and although it had ups and downs, I wouldn't trade it for anything. <3

Off the Internets, I'm 30 years old. I live in NYC with my husband Sagger-AT3, who hasn't updated his profile in a while. xP We live with an assortment of cats, hamsters, and plants. I collect art, love to cook (especially Indian and Thai food), read voraciously, listen to music of all kinds, spend way too much time playing with cosmetics, and love chocolate.

I am a doctoral student pursuing a PhD in Clinical Neuropsychology so that I can (some day!) become a practicing clinical neuropsychologist. My research area of interest is the neuropsychology of emotion. I am especially interested in empathy, as well as how the brain produces emotional experience. My previous research projects involve emotional functioning in individuals with Parkinson's Disease and in healthy older adults, and I am now working on a project looking at emotion processing in musicians.

I love comments! If you have any (non-Gaia) questions or comments, please post and I'll do my best to comment back. smilies/icon_heart.gif

If you have comments turned off, please don't ask me a question! I do actually try to reply back to comments, but I will do so by leaving you a comment! If you have comments turned off, no reply for you! And that is sad. smilies/icon_sad.gif

Art Collection & Commissions

As I mentioned earlier, I collect art! I have over 2000 pieces of art in my collection at this time. To see just a few examples of these, please visit my Art Gallery. My full gallery is sadly not very updated, but if you are interested in seeing more, go here and here

If you are interested in doing a commission for me and would like to see my references and post your samples and prices, stop by my Art Request Thread!

Just a note, I did not make any of the art in my profile, nor am I an artist. So please don't send me PMs asking me to make you art! Not only is this rude, but you really don't want me to draw you so much as a stick figure, I assure you. smilies/icon_gonk.gif

And although it should go without saying, please do not use any of my art or code, either from my profile or my request thread/gallery. This would be stealing and would make me very unhappy.
