Doing More Homework

I looked up "explosive irritability" as a symptom of Midazolam poisoning. Yikes! Here's what I found... This is the entire study; Comprehensive Neurobehavioral Systems (CNS): Newsletter

Here's a statement that I found really interesting... "Commonly, these rage behaviors are associated with temporal lobe disorders, because deep within the temporal lobe of the brain there are a group of structures (part of the limbic system) that are critical for emotional stability. This includes the amygdala (sometimes referred to as the rage center) and the hippocampus (which is also critical for memory). Unfortunately, these are deep structures and they do not show up on typical brain scans (e.g.; CT or MRI), nor do we see standard electrical disorders on the EEG."

Now what part of the brain is acted upon with Versed/Midazolam? Hmmm. Let's see. Why it's the temporal lobe, the amygdala etc.! So according to medical people, wrecking all of these areas with Versed couldn't possibly cause behavioral disorders linked to these same areas of the brain? Does this denial seem rational or reasonable to you?
