      I see this stuff really interests you, cognitive neuroscience theorises much of this as central in origin, brain this & brain that......but what if there is more going on in the end organ itself, perhaps the ear is more intelligent & dynamic then it gets credit for. Is there modulation of action potentials "before" it even gets to the brain. Do have a listen if you have time https://neuroscience.stanford.edu/news/hearing-tony-ricci

      You're quite off indeed. Think about phantom limb pain.

      The thing is, if you lose a limb, you may still feel pain from that phantom limb. It's a well documented phenomenon.

      I thought of that also but the way I saw it was that phantom limb pain is indeed real but it isn't necessarily a guaranteed outcome from an amputation.Some people experience it any many others don't so of course it's just a gamble,if your willing to take that gamble is another thing altogether.Personally I don't know if it's worth it or not.

      @bill 112 In this thread you mentioned that your T was triggered by even the sound of your own breathing. It reminded me of an article I read. Not implying by any means that you have anorexia. The article mentions that loss of fat surrounding the eustachian can cause many of the symptoms you have.

      ...a rare hyperperception of an abnormally intense hearing of one’s own voice and respiratory sounds. You can read the whole article here: http://www.mdedge.com/currentpsychi...ognizing-autophonia-patients-anorexia-nervosa

      Nothing,he seen no improvement after the trial.

      Admittedly it was only to test tolerance so the dose was extremely low,maybe more is needed etc but overall he saw no improvement.

      A small update from october 2016. This presentation is about what GenVec is currently busy with. They want to use their Adenoverse platform to offer various regenerative therapeutics. CFG166 is touched on briefly around the 7:30 mark.
