Every once in a while, an actual researcher asks a research
type question and, surprisingly often, gets a technical response.
There definitely are neuroscientists out there who scan this
group looking for real neuroscience. And this newsgroup
is also very helpful to "lay" people with real questions
But I do find annoying the people who feel it necessary to
cross-post to bionet.neuroscience along with things like
comp.robotics or alt.conspiracy or alt.paranormal, just
to mention a few recent postings.
