I highly recommend the web site and the Dermoneuromodulation page of Facebook. The focus is on neuroscience and pain science applied to manual therapy.

Back in the 80s during my serious bodybuilding days, having easy access to whatever I wanted w/o prescription in Mexico pharmacies, I experimented with L-Dopa as an aid to recovery and mood elevation.   Miniscule dosages, so I didn't permanently screw up my hormone metabolism.  Even then I knew that dopamine was serious stuff.  But, fanatic that many serious athletes are, I swallowed the pills anyway.
