First Physiology exam is tomorrow... The main focus is action potentials and how nerves and muscles talk to each other. Favorite terms of this section include:
I don't think any of those would make good business names, though...
I did sign up for the reptile lab on Saturday- we have an iguana to necropsy! How cool.
The physiology question of the day today was "How do jet pilots prevent blood from rushing to their heads ("red-out") during a dive and blood from rushing out of their heads (blackout) during a climb?"
Win and I went to the airport dog park after class today, where she made lots of new dogfriends. She was particularly smitten with a big Basset hound, who was easily the most athletic Basset I've ever met. He was almost as quick as Winnie!Unfortunately, I was ready to leave way before Win was, so she decided to dart away as soon as I pulled out her leash. I left her and went to sit in the car, in hopes that she'd realize I wasn't going to chase her down, but she just took off on her own to find new dogs to play with. Goofball.
Anyway, back to the books...
