The feeling you get when you are having a lively discussion or listening to an engaging lecture and everything makes sense and it gives you a bunch of new ideas about the topic at hand. The intellectual equivalent of an erection.
DeSean: oh man, that lecture given by Dr. Kobilka about G protein-coupled receptor dynamics gave me a massive brain boner.

Derrick: uhh...right, yeah, totally dude. *pssst* Jimmy, I think we need to re-evaluate our friendship with DeSean...

Jimmy: agreed.

A strong liking towards a member of the same gender, in a non-sexual manner. A closely bonded friendship. Similar to a "bromance."
Ted: "Hey where has Phil been lately? Ah, probably shackin' up with some lass."
Josh: "I really don't know and it's kinda bumming me out. We used to do everything together. It's kinda like Cheech without Chong."
Ted: "Heh sounds like you've got a total brain boner for him!"
