Thanks! That's a good reminder. I was able to study remarkably well for my MA exams (the one time in my life that concentration wasn't as much of a struggle as usual), but I was pregnant during those months, and I've read that the more constantly high levels of estrogen then mean that norepinephrine is higher.
