When older people can no longer remember names at a cocktail party, they tend to think that their brainpower is declining. But a growing number of studies suggest that this assumption is often wrong.
Instead, the research finds, the aging brain is simply taking in more data and trying to sift through a clutter of information, often to its long-term benefit.
The studies are analyzed in a new edition of a neurology book, “Progress in Brain Research.”
Some brains do deteriorate with age. Alzheimer’s disease, for example, strikes 13 percent of Americans 65 and older. But for most aging adults, the authors say, much of what occurs is a gradually widening focus of attention….
From CNN’s video: One on one with Jessica Baty 3:27
CNN’s Abbie Boudreau has the exclusive interview with Jessica Baty, who was the NIU shooter’s girlfriend for two years.
Excerpt Transcribed by Jeff Fenske:
CNN: “She said he had a troubled childhood, and spent time in group-home, battling depression.”
Jessica Baty (Kazmierczak’s girlfriend): “He did cut himself….”
CNN: “She said NIU officials were wrong when when they said [Steven] Kazmierczak was acting erratically after he stopped taking his medication.”
Jessica Baty: “It was Prozac.”
CNN: “That she says he used to battle anxiety and excessive compulsive tendencies.”
Jessica Baty: “He was on medication, and he did stop taking it. And he stopped taking it because he said that it made him feel like a zomby, and that he was just lazy, and that’s why he stopped taking it.” …
CNN: “He also sent her The Antichrist, by Nietzsche.
My comment #2 from Skousen: Anti-Depressants Suppress the Conscience Part of the Brain
I’ve considered another scenario as to why those who go off of antidepressants often commit suicide or commit violent acts, considering that some of the school shooters had just come off of the SSRI, anti-depressant drugs.
Given that anti-depressants dull the conscience, as Joel states, perhaps this could also diminish the person’s ability to feel some of the bothersome effects of certain demons that are affecting their mind and/or body. Which may be a major reason why people go on the drugs to begin with, to feel better—free—though, this doesn’t get rid of the root cause of feeling bad. The drug doesn’t bring real freedom.
Then when the person goes off of a feeling (& demon) suppressing drug, he/she can then feel the full effect, not just from the demons they originally had, but from those that have come in during the drug induced, conscience dulled state—which could have opened them up to live in ways that would allow many more demons in.
Then if they go off the drug, what they feel is so overwhelming that violence can often result.

ANTI-DEPRESSANT DRUGS RAISE THE THREAT OF SUICIDE
Shankar Vedantam of the Washington Post writes, “Adults taking popular antidepressants such as Prozac, Paxil and Zoloft are more than twice as likely to attempt suicide as patients given sugar pills, according to an analysis released yesterday of hundreds of clinical trials involving tens of thousands of patients.” Previously there was a clear link only to teens and suicide, and only when withdrawing them from use of these drugs. What makes these new revelations so important is the breadth of the study: “The examination of 702 controlled clinical trials involving 87,650 patients is the most comprehensive look at the subject and is particularly telling because it counted suicide attempts and included patients treated for a variety of conditions, including sexual dysfunction, bulimia, panic disorder and depression.”
As I have reported before, having talked with problem teens that have used these drugs, anti-depressants suppress the portion of the mind that relays the warnings of conscience, allowing dark spiritual forces full sway to influence and depress. In my opinion, suicide is always accompanied by some form of Satanic depression. That’s what makes suicidal people so resistant to change, or resistant to accepting love and help from others.
[FASCINATING audio] Dr. Ann Blake Tracy with John B. Wells on ‘Coast to Coast AM’ 1/19/13: ANTIDEPRESSANTS & VIOLENCE — The “HITLER SYNDROME” (overconfidence in ones own policies or decisions, no fear of consequences, criminal behavior, death of people close to the abuser as the preferred method of solving problems in the abusers life, coldness and lack of humanity). Antidepressants cause distorted thinking, abnormal behavior, and LOSS OF MORALITY to spread like a contagion.
