comment Is territoriality only the domain of the male of a species?
From personal observation: house sparrows "stake a claim" at a bird feeder, and both males and females chase away competitors

comment Is there such thing as “half-life” of dopamine?
If I understand correctly, the DAT cleans up extracellular and bound DA, and deposits it back within the neuron. As less and less extracellular DA is available, there's a higher chance that bound DA will be recovered. Is this correct?

Cretivity, innovation or ideation. What makes the brain think creative thoughts?

If I'm reading this correctly, then Dopamine is randomly extracted from receptors, right?

comment Is there such thing as “half-life” of dopamine?
Interesting. Does this mean that upon release, dopamine has 200ms to either bind to a receptor or be reabsorbed?

It is the receptor regulation that I'm most interested in.

comment What is the armpit hair for?
Hair has been used for defense, think of lions, horses and roman centurion helmets. It's hard to cut or bite through. I'm not an expert, but it may be that beards, pubic and underarm hair cover exposed parts of the body that have vital arteries under the skin(neck, armpit and groin).
