And the chemist in me said, “Whoa, all of these activities influence your brain’s chemistry. Think there’s a connection there?” The answer, of course, is a no-brainer.
I have an extensive chemistry background from my “previous life” as a pharmacist; in pre-pharmacy Organic Chemistry classes, I spent hours poring over molecular structures and their reactions, and in pharmacy school I learned about biochemistry. I was particularly intrigued by the chemistry of the brain, and the way…
