Nathaniel Milton, PhD Biography

Title:
Clinical Neuroscience Researcher at London's Royal Free and University College Medical School
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
Reasoning:

“I have shown that cannabinoids including noladin ether and anandamide are neuroprotective against amyloid-ß [chemical deposits in the brain].

The protective mechanism is mediated via cannabinoid CB1 receptor activation of p42/p44 kinase pathways [signaling pathways in the brain].”
