    The title is over-the-top click-bait, but the article is quite good.

    Article about PANDAS (pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococci), "immunopsychiatry", and emerging connections between the brain and the immune system.

    The article is too long to post here. See link above.

    Mady Hornig is quoted very briefly. The CII (Lipkin/Hornig's department at Columbia) tweeted a link to this article.

    The article talked about Alice In Wonderland Syndrome, which I had never heard of, but their description sounded all too familiar. Sounds like I had that as a kid? My daughter had it also...... Fascinating article, thank you for sharing it! It definitely is food for thought.
