3. This is an excellent vehicle to diseminate in good text and simple but well chosen words, solid scientific knlowledge of the neurosciences, about topics that are of common interest. I will be proud if some future contributons of mine are accepted to be published in this medium. I was President of the Mexican Chapter of the International League Against Epilepsy and even wrote a book in spanish about epilepsy in children. I hope particularly young people be attracted to read this attractive and enticing maganize.

5. Please continue with your efforts in doing a good source of knowledge. My own interest is mostly about psychosis and especially schizophrenia. I am a manager of a community-based mental health team and we are struggling, since some years, to develop the care and treatment for the severely mental ill. Many issues to take care of from organising and build information systems to education and supervision, etc

6. Thank you very much for this excellent magazine. I have been searching for quite some time to find such a source of knowledge. I have been interested in neuroscience, especially the basis of the mind, for quite some time. I truly appreciate such a great magazine to assist me in my search for answers.

9. The documental into the "the external Architecture of the brain" it´s amazing but why don´t do it in spanish, because there people to want know more about the brain.

10. Congratulations! Your magazine was recognized as an important new www location in the August edition of Medicine on the Net, COR Healthcare's monthly magazine for physicians and other healthcare professionals who need to know how to effectively use the Internet in their careers. We know that developing a Internet web site is a growing investment of time, dollars and energy. Competition increases daily. Each day another site, another company, is coming online and competing for the attention of the medical community. I hope that Brain & Mind Magazine will be interested in how Medicine On The Net can keep this elusive healthcare audience of "active information seekers" returning to your site.

17. In the recently announced 4th issue of Brain & Mind electronic magazine (http://www.epub.org.br/cm), there are at least two articles with observations and ideas that relate directly to possible reasons for attributing ethical value to beings. They are:
The editorial, What is Mind?, by Silvia H. Cardoso, PhD, And, Perception and Reality, by Jorge Martins de Oliveira, MD, PhD, Best wishes. Ron

18. One the best things I liked about your article"How the Brain Organizes the Sexual Behavior is it was educational and not pornographic. It is very hard for the students to look up sexual information on the web for the newsletter and not finding themselves in a porn site before they realize where they are. I do not find porn offensive on all levels, after all are we not the only species that not give its young the knowledge of its sexuality naturally, thus forcing them to go to porn.

18. About the Brazilian endevor "Brain & Mind": I think that this attempt to dissimate knowledge on a particular topic in the form of an Electronic Journal (free of charge) is a laudible effort. With all the information garbage clogging the internet this is something of substance. Even if the dons of the neurosciences might belittle the effort, it is at least research in communication and education which is becoming of increasing importance in the age of information inflation.
