 What's magical about 1980? A lot of great neurobiology was donw quite a bit

 There's nothing magical about 1980.  But since the original poster
 in this thread was proclaiming the inadequacies of modern biology
 and neuroscience in providing cures for neurological diseases, and
 since he was giving us a tour of the history of science, beginning
 in the 17th century and ending in the 1970's, it seemed
 appropriate to request that he limit his discussion to recent
 research for the purpose of letting the newsgroup know just what
 he was talking about.  (Also, since the poster gave no indication,
 in 3 longwinded posts, that he actually knew anything about
 research done after 1980, I wanted to call him on this issue.)
