Kei,

I would say yes, it is of interest. However, I was hoping that some of us
could pitch in to extend your work without giving you yet another thing to
do :^).

Hi Don and Alan,

In addition to neuronal information, BrainPharm, which is a subdatabase 
of SenseLab, stores some drug-related information about the Parkinson's 
Disease (http://senselab.med.yale.edu/BrainPharm/dopamine.asp) if it is 
also of interest to the group.
