 Hi,
I thought I would point out this interesting article  http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2012/03/how-your-cat-is-making-you-crazy/8873/ 
 
This article discusses the work of Jaroslav Flegr, a Czeck scientist who believes that Toxo is connected to schizophrenia and possibly other brain disorders.

If you build it, will they come?

general open research

Hats Off! to Ginger for creating TSL.

I was quite excited when I first found TSL. I was, in fact, looking for an open research community, without much luck. I was actually planning on building a similar website, if I couldn't find one already in existence.

I must admit that I am somewhat discouraged that TSL has been around for over a year, had some rather high powered publicity at kickoff, but seems to be languishing.

Why are not more people here?

What are the issues that prevent people from contributing?
