so bruce, how does this sustain your "gut 
feelings"??????

For decades, Freudian concepts such as ego, id and 
repressed desires
dominated psychology and psychiatry’s attempts to 
cure mental illnesses.
But better understanding of brain chemistry 
gradually replaced this model
with a biological explanation of how the mind 
arises from neuronal activity.

The latest attempts to piece together diverse 
neurological findings, however,
are leading to a chemical framework of the mind 
that validates the general
sketch Freud made almost a century ago. A growing 
group of scientists are
eager to reconcile neurology and psychiatry into a 
unified theory.
